Back to the Journey

Every year in IB Film we do a unit on The Hero's Journey based on the ideas that Joseph Campbell proposed in The Hero with a Thousand Faces and popularized for storytelling strategies by Christopher Volger in The Writer's JourneyI find it really helps the students both analyze the structure of the film and discover how the plot ties into the theme.   Usually we read a chapter from The Power of Myth, a transcript of Campbell's conversation with Bill Moyers about Mythology.

Always looking for new material to supplement the lesson, I found this great comprehensive explanation of the whole journey in a few minutes from TED Education.

    Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, research, or simply through autodidacticism. Thanks for sharing a nice information...
