We are all on a journey of sorts; it may be a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual journey that causes us to change from who we were last week or last year into who we are today. This idea of individuals moving through life as if on a journey is an archetype.

Lesson 6: Complete the Unit Exam
In life and on the hero's journey, we navigate a road of trials that challenge and refine us. It is always helpful to have directions to find our way. Sometimes the directions we need are literal ones that use landmarks or directions from a compass, and sometimes we need directions in the form of advice from someone who has traveled the road before us. In your novel, the characters travel through different settings. Use what you have read in your novel to create a map and provide directions to at least two settings. These directions should explain and illustrate settings that were important to one of the main characters in your novel. ACTIVITY ONE: CREATE A MAP

Choose or create images to represent the five places you have on your map. Your images can represent literal locations (a house, a city, a road, etc.), or they can represent figurative locations (the character's heart, his or her mind, a place of loneliness, etc.). 4.
Label the places you have included on your map.
Label your map with cardinal (north, south, east, west) directions. Consider using a Web 2.0 tool or a graphics program to create the visual representation of the journey. Example of what a map might look like:

Write detailed travel directions explaining how the character in your novel travels from one location to the next. Write a five sentence paragraph giving detailed travel directions explaining how your character traveled to each of the five locations on your map. Be sure your directions are...
