Just in time for the brand new Star Wars movie, we've got a new lesson plan for you. This ready-to-use lesson plan is a perfect ready-to-use, self-contained classroom plan for those last few days of the year.

In this lesson, your students will be introduced to the concept of the archetypal story, "The Hero's Journey" through the original Star Wars trilogy. They'll then work in small groups to explore another text and practice analyzing stories following this format that they are already familiar with.
