This project begins with a journey that moves from the familiar to a place of adventure and trials through an instructional unit on the Hero's Journey and The Hobbit. It begins with a rationale for the selection of both the unit topic and the selected text which is followed by the standards covered, prior knowledge needed, and a map of the unit. Following this are the four weeks of lesson plans and the instructional materials the students would use. The project finishes off with a reflection on the process and the struggles and lessons learned along the way.
