What's happening this unit...

  • Our next Module focuses on Percy Jackson and the Hero's Journey.  This unit is designed to build students' background knowledge and understanding of Greek Mythology and the archetype of the hero's journey and their continuing significance in modern literature.  Students will practice reading closely as they analyze the novel The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordon.  Some students may have already read this text, but do not fret, this unit pushes them to read "differently":  reading closely with a focus on vocabulary, character analysis, and Percy Jackson as an archetypal hero.


    Guiding Questions:

    • What is the hero's journey?
    • How does knowledge of the hero's journey help to more deeply understand the character?
    • What is a myth?
    • Why do myths matter?
