Hero’s Journey for Any Epic Poem, Novel, or Film, Body Biography Project is filled with all you need to teach and promote the amazing characters your students experience in their reading. Your students will experience the unique approach of using a collaborative poster, the hero’s journey, textual evidence, research, and the body biography project! It’s here! The wait is over!
This blank template bundle includes 3 hero’s journey outlines that include the 12 parts (from Joseph Campbell) for an adult female, adult male, and a child. Give your students a relevant and modern experience while promoting the 4 C’s. Leave the body biography posters up all year long! I adapted the body biography concept to align with citing textual evidence, character traits, research, and inference skills.
