In the set of follow-up discussion questions, your students will also learn key features of Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey process.

This is the second story of seven about a 6th-grade boy named Jack. Upperclassmen Tom and Marcus meet sixth-grader Jack. When the older boys learn that Jack wishes to be part of the percussion section in the marching band, Tom comes up with a rather mean plan.
