Where The Mountain Meets The Moon – A Heroine’s Journey

This fall we began a study of the Hero’s Journey.  You can read about it here.  After studying the Star Wars saga we read the book, Where The Mountain Meets The Moon by Grace Lin. Our class enjoyed this book so very much.  We rooted for Minli and Dragon to complete their journey and loved all of the folktales that were embedded throughout the story.  After reading the book we used the Hero’s Journey archetype to analyze the story.  We compared Minli’s journey to Luke Skywalker and Rey.  Finally, we decided to create this slideshow to share with our blog readers. We hope you enjoy it and learn about the Hero’s Journey!  Do you know of any other books or movies that follow the Hero’s Journey archetype?
