- Assign students to groups of 4 or 5. Have them take out a sheet of paper and draw a mind map with hubris at the center of the diagram. Then, students should explain draw lines to four to six vices that result from hubris and a brief explanation of why.
- Then, ask the students in their groups to list an important real person or fictional character for each of the vices they tied to hubris.
- Ask the students to share their reasoning about why a vice might result from hubris, which person/character they chose to represent the vice, and why? Ask:
How did hubris lead to the downfall of the person/character?
- As a large group, ask the students the central question and briefly discuss:
Can a hero sometimes fall because of a character flaw related to pride? Explain.
