The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler is where the information is gathered from for this class. If the student finds they really love the Hero's Journey and want to learn more after the class, I recommend they pick up this book. 

A Hero's Journey lesson plan and curriculum from PowerPoint Guru will be used.
