Hero’s Journey

The Hero’s Journey is a classic storytelling formula. Trials and tribulations are party of the journey, the Hero is triumphant in the end, with challenge meet and the story ending in renewal. It is introduced in week one as a social-emotional tool so our refugee students may see themselves as a Hero, their journey thus far only part of an ongoing story, and that they too will triumph against all odds. Some students choose to create a fictional story while others shared real stories from their lives.
