Your creation myth can be an adaptation of those you reviewed in Unit 3 or an entirely new approach. It can include a flood or any other component of climate. Your myth can present gods, goddesses, demigods, or any other type of mythic creature (fairies, elves, fauns, centaurs, etc.), or it can express a spiritual entity that reigns supreme on its own. The key to this exploration is for you to experience the drive and wonder found in the Humanities, even today, to explain how we came to be.
Present: your myth in story form. (2 or more well-developed paragraphs)
Analyze: the â€˜howâ€™ and the â€˜whyâ€™ the world and its people were created and came to be. Think about why others should adopt your myth. (one or more well-developed paragraphs)
Reflect: On the creation of your second artifact for the Humanities. Explore how having a solid understanding of myth enhances your ability to experience art, literature, music, and most anything else at a deeper level. (one or more well-developed paragraphs).
For this assignment, you have several options. If you would like to use Powerpoint or Prezi to include images or pictures, aim for a title slide that includes your name, title of your myth, and the date, as many body slides as needed to present the myth narrative, a slide for the analysis, and a slide for the reflection. There should not be a reference slide for this type of artifact.
You can also use MS Word for a textual presentation by aiming for well-developed paragraphs of 5 â€“ 8 sentences. Note that your MS word document must include several images or pictures that illustrate your written statements.
