I love to end the year with my students by studying Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey. It’s a unit about personal growth, and change, and challenges, and transformation, and death and rebirth . . . and maturing.
In the early stages of the Journey we typically see “the hero” as naive. We define that as often not even being aware of what one doesn’t know.
Or, in other words: You don’t even know what you don’t know.
Which, as it turns out, describes most of us quite well I guess.
