What’s the story about?
Story Description: We are now going to hear a story about sixth-grader Jackie. Watch how her feelings about herself either motivate her to do the victim thing or to decide to act like an extraordinary hero. This story is called “The ‘ordinary world’ of Little Jackie."
Please note: Back in 2001 and 2002, the author wrote four Hero’s Journey series built around a sixth-grade girl, an eighth-grade girl, a sixth-grade boy, and an eighth-grade boy. To avoid confusion, the sixth grade protagonists will be known as Little Jackie and Little Jack, respectively. The eighth-grade protagonists will be known as Big Jackie and Big Jack, respectively. This particular series is built around the sixth-grade girl named Little Jackie. The hero’s journey series is based on Joseph Campbell’s story model.
