I Need a Hero

This I Need a Hero unit also includes:

“Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?”  Are you holding out for a hero? A Ulysses, a lightsaber-wielding Luke Skywalker, or a street-wise Hercules like Huck Finn? Learners explore the heroic archetype, heroes in art, heroes in literature, and real heroes in a series of activities designed to accompany a reading of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The packet includes guiding questions, a template for characteristics of the heroic archetype adapted from Joseph Campbell, and extensions.  Although designed for Twain’s novel, the activities can be adapted to any heroic tale, from The Odyssey to Star Wars, from Jane Eyre to Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games.
