Read the article, “Heroes, Not Celebrities” Think about the traits of a hero you wrote about in your journals and what you think Captain Sully possesses Discuss the following questions with a partner and be prepared to share with the class: Do celebrities qualify as heroes? If they are heroes, what do celebrities have that everyday heroes do not? Do you agree with what the author is saying? Why or Why not?
Watch the following two video clips Think about whether or not the two people portrayed were heroic or not Is one more heroic than the other? Why? What are some qualities or traits that you believe make a hero?
How do people view these heroes? What obstacles/challenges have they overcome? How have they affected other people’s lives?
Your group will receive a scenario. Read through it and discuss whether or not you think the person is heroic or not List some of the traits that the person has Create a rationale of why you chose your answer Be prepared to share in front of the class

The “jumping off point” The point where the initiate begins his/her journey The initiate commits to whatever challenges may be ahead
Protects by blocking the initiate from taking the journey before he/she is ready Sometimes hopes to prevent the journey from happening at all
The world full of dangers and challenges The initiate is not aware of what awaits him/her here Meets allies and enemies
Where the initiate “slays the dragon” The initiate will typically fail at first Initiate faces their greatest fear/challenge
Revelation: During this stage, a part of the initiate dies so that a new part can be born Transformation: Sudden, dramatic change in the way one thinks
Achieved when the initiate is “at one” with himself or herself Comes to terms with the transformation and journey as a whole
In this stage, the hero begins contributing to his/her society In most cases, returns home with a gift or treasure for the greater good

Within your group, come up with a story It can be a popular one already made such as a movie or book Or it can be one that your group makes up Break down the parts of the hero’s journey and identify them on the back in a few sentences
Using the worksheet, identify the parts of a Hero’s Journey with your table Each person will go to a new table and create their part of the Hero’s Journey from a story or movie on the list or their own They will then regroup at their regular seats to share their part Once everyone has shared their part, put together the whole story They are supposed to sound wacky! We will share these as a class
1: Answering the Call, information of the Hero’s every day life, and The Return 2: The Mentor or Guide and Threshold Guardian (Gatekeeper) 3: Threshold and Atonement 4: Unknown and Enemies and Allies and Dangers ahead 5: Abyss and the Hero’s greatest fear/challenge 6: Revelation and Transformation
Batman Iron Man Harry Potter Finding Nemo Lion King Percy Jackson Man of Steel (Superman) Avatar Harry Potter The Goonies Star Wars Lord of the Rings Wizard of Oz Cinderella Lilo and Stitch Thor Captain America Indiana Jones Hunger Games Holes
Using the handout, you are to construct your own Hero’s Journey It can be about someone in real life, but the story has to be fictional! Make sure that each part of the journey is accurate about what we learned today
