 Review for Exam I


We've reached the first heroic test in your quest to finish this class! :) We'll start it off with a scavenger hunt on the wiki. 


  • Go through all the course lectures and post the major topics we've discussed.
  • List three things you think you will need to know about each topic (not each text).
  • What are the major themes we've discussed with each text? How does this relate to our overarching concept of the hero?
  • How do our text relate to the American West?

Heroes Journey- this topic consisted of how each hero has a calling because of a previous event that happened in their life. Each hero was at first overwhelmed with their powers being that they did not know how to control or use them.

The Hero’s Journey
Manifest Destiny, “God given calling.” View of the Indians and what it means to be an American boy.
How to do a close reading.
Getting engaged in high level thinking.
Cagawea standing up for race, freedom and showing her background and
Homo Americanus – the American man
Realism and the American hero
Short stories - being able to quickly get the point across without losing attention and meaning.
Short stories relate to the American West because when we went westward we were changing everything and now with short stories we are changing how stories are actually told.
