This is one of several Hero’s Journey role-plays appropriate for middle school students that teaches anti-bullying and Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey process.

Role-play description

What is the role-play about? You can watch the slideshow to find out. You can also read the description below.

Hero’s Journey role-play description: Here is a story scenario you can use to help teach about the importance of the Character Education traits of Self Control, Valuing & Respecting Self, Valuing & Respecting Others, and Tolerance & Allowing. 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 sixth story of seven about a boy named Jack. Please note that this is a continuation of the story about the Jack you read about in the stories called ‘The Ball’, ‘The Dance’, and ‘The Heart’.

Now that Jack was in the seventh grade, he began to feel confused about whether he wished to remain on the track and basketball teams. He even began to feel curious about those kids who took either pot or pills. Did he want to become one of them? Read the role-play to discover what choice Jack ended up making.

Please note: As a clinical social worker, Mr. Terry Gardner kindly created these stories for Debbie Dunn’s Communication Skills class at CMS back in 2001.This Terry Gardner Jack Tale is shared in his memory and with permission of his widow, Lin Gardner.

Role-play directions

Note to the teacher: In addition to the role-play, you can also read it in story form. You might want to read the story to the class first and then have the class act out the role-play. Here’s the link:

Teacher Says or Asks: We will now act out the role-play based on the last story you just heard called “The Feeling.”

The role-play features four guy actors: Jack, Mr. Campbell, Luke, and Duke.

Jack and Mr. Campbell have the big parts. Luke and Duke have the smaller parts.

The rest of the class will take turns reading the parts of Narrator 1 and Narrator 2.

Who is interested in playing these roles? (Either pull names or accept eager student volunteers.)

A paper-saving suggestion

To save paper, you might only want to duplicate ten copies of the role-play and then have your students share the script between them. If you have an overhead projector or some way to project the role-play from the slideshow onto the wall or screen, you could save paper altogether.
