What makes a hero? Wendy has visited schools and museums to talk with kids about just that. Using Star Wars as an example, she takes a look at the classic Hero’s Journey in literature. Ideal for grades 3-6, this is a fun introduction to the interpretation of story structure. Through the journey of Luke Skywalker, students will learn about courage and motivation, and the altruism that defines a real hero.
