HUM 105 Week 4 Contemporary Hero’s Quest Presentation
Choose a contemporary story in the form of a novel or movie that is inspired by a mythological epic or journey of a hero's quest.  Choose from one of the following:  Star Wars: A New Hope (1977),  Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Hunger Games (first book/movie), The Matrix (1999), or Batman Begins (2005).

Create a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint®presentation about a contemporary hero or heroine's quest.

Identify the main character (hero)--the feat(s) he or she must execute for the benefit of society in the face of challenges. 

Identify the villain and describe his or her characteristics and role in the hero's quest.

Identify other character archetypes (see Character Archetypes link to the right) within the story anddescribe these roles in the context of your contemporary hero.  If the link to the right doesn't work, copy and paste this link into your web browser to understand these archetypes:

Identify in detail each of the steps the hero takes in the quest: Separation, Initiation, and Return as described in the Stages of the Hero's Journey link to the right.

Identify one hero myth from the Week 4 readings and explain how this hero is similar to your contemporary hero. 

Discuss the conflicts between personal desires and community responsibility represented in the myth and the contemporary story. Relate these to the conflicts and choices ordinary humans struggle with. Explain why these human conflicts retain relevance through the ages.

Format your citations and references consistent with APA guidelines.  Make sure to include comprehensivespeaker notes.  Speaker notes, the space below your slides, should explain the images and bullet points that you include on the slides, and they would serve as the "script" during your presentation.  Since I cannot hear you present this information, make sure that your speaker notes cover all of the information that you would want to present in a face-to-face presentation.
