The My Hero Journey (MHJ) curriculum is nine lessons designed for K-12 students. At the culmination of the classroom instruction each student will create a personalized storybook about their own Hero’s Journey. Each grade band has their own age specific materials to help them learn at their level. This super flexible curriculum can be tailored around the needs of each classroom. Lessons can be taught at a pace that works for you over the course of a few weeks, a whole semester, an or entire year. It was designed to integrate with curriculum already being taught. Our team will provide you with alignment crosswalks, for integration in Language Arts and Social Studies for elementary classes. For secondary classes it is aligned with Health, Civics, and English. It is built to be online or classroom based, it works well in a blended format and has proven to be a win-win for parents, teachers and students,
As students begin to take the lead in their story they will learn how their story impacts the communities they are a part of. They will learn to reach out and listen to others, find ways to serve them, and choose courage to share their story to help others. We are committed to providing a learning experience that will not only benefit the students who participate, but the ripple effect will carry out into their classroom, school, home, community and world. My Hero Journey was written by teachers for teachers and helps students young and old take the lead in their story!
Each lesson contains worksheets, reading suggestions, group activities, individual activities, and writing exercises.
Teachers will enjoy a full resource center with video tutorials, lesson plans, worksheets, and support materials.
Each student will become a published author of their very own story. They will take the books home to enjoy for a lifetime and to share with their friends and family.
Students will learn 9 unique and engaging songs that correspond with the My Hero Journey lessons.
