The assignment is to create a PowerPoint presentation (or other multimedia presentation) on a legendary figure, place, item, or event from world literature (1600 CE or earlier). It should contain roughly 800-1200 words of text and some form or forms of other media (art, music, etc.). This length requirement will bend a bit depending on the project type.
Note that all writing in the project should be original; the projects will be run through Turnitin upon submission, and all distinctive matching information caught by Turnitin must be formatted as a quotation. DO NOT copy-paste material without immediately marking it as a quotation and citing it. Any multimedia (art, music) inserted or linked in the presentation should also include full bibliographic information.
All projects should have:
- a title page
- MLA style citations/works cited page.
- The project’s text should be 800-1200 words long or so.
As long as the project has all of these items, you can let your imaginations roam a bit to come up with something really creative.
Guidelines for Choosing an Topic
The chosen figure/place/event/item should be known before 1600 CE and be primarily legendary or mythological, not historical. The presentation needs to include a combination of information and analysis, so make sure to choose a figure, etc. that lends itself to analysis.
- at least 5 secondary/critical sources; 2 must be peer-reviewed
- at least 1 primary source (literary text, artwork) written/created before 1600
