Welcome to Mrs. Sullivan's ELA Class
6th Grade Language Arts
We will be beginning a 3 unit module: Percy Jackson and the Hero's Journey. This is unit is designed to build students' background understanding of the archetype of the hero's journey and its 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.
What is the hero's journey?
How does knowledge of the hero's journey help to more deeply understand the character?
