The Hero’s Journey: Literature & Composition, 2nd Edition

The books in the Hero’s Journey: Literature & Composition, 2nd Edition, feature ordinary people who find themselves in circumstances that require extraordinary acts, and how these acts relate to the archetypal hero’s journey. Lessons provide historical background on the setting and author, and discussion points for exploring literary themes and issues with family and peers. Students develop a wide range of composition skills throughout the course, using techniques and formats such as comparative essays, first-person writing, figurative language, summarizing, poetry, persuasive writing, inferential reading and contextual clues, and observational writing.

Note: The 2nd edition features new literature selections to reflect more diverse heroes and authors. Diary of a Young Girl and Into the Wild will be replaced with Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko and Where We Come From by Oscar Cásares.
