Journey Wheel Project: Here is a TAG structure you can use for your Journey Wheel Paragraphs (on the project)

Please feel free to copy this structure, or nuance it a bit into your own style; but you MUST have TAG in each of your paragraphs for the Journey Wheel Project.

Each of the TWO (2) pie wedges you are contributing to your group’s project must each contain a formal paragraph explaining HOW and WHY the Monomyth step is present in your chosen film or book.

As you know, I have been looking over your drafts, as you hand them in for feedback, and I have noticed inconsistency regarding the inclusion of TAG.

To help you all meet with success on these paragraphs, I am providing the following ‘TAG example’ that you may copy or nuance as you re-work your final drafts of your paragraphs. Information in the [ ] is information you will provide based on your choice of film or book.

The [film or book title here; remember to underline!] directed by [or written by] __________________________, provides a clear example of the mono-myth structure of the archetypal hero’s journey wheel described by Joseph Campbell. The protagonist , _______________, is an example of such a hero because her journey includes [name the step upon which you are writing]; this is shown ___________________________ [explain and discusss how and why]. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

REMEMBER You must stay in the literary present tense (LPVT), do NOT use “I” or “myself”, etc; you can use ‘we’ or ‘the viewer’ or ‘the reader.’
You must have quotations. If from a book, cite by page number. E.G. Page 5 => (5).
If citing from a film, we will use the time stamp for the scene, for this assignment. E.G. (1:25:23) => tells us the quotation or reference is to a scene at the 1hour, 25 min and 23 second mark.
