Question description

Prepare a presentation about a vacation or a retreat to a sacred place in mythology, for example, the Oracle at Delphi or the Mahabodhi Temple. This place may or may not currently exist.

Create a 10- to 14-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes. Copy and Paste your Speaker Notes into an MS Word document and submit it with your PowerPoint.  The use of background and images on your slides is encouraged.

Include the following:

  • The mythological origins, history, and functions of the place
  • Any sacred objects and attributes associated with the deities and mythological origins of this place, for example, Apollo's snake and lyre or Buddha's bodhi tree -- Discuss the symbolism of these objects as used by contemporary people and cultures.
  • A comparison of this place to those that serve similar functions in other cultures, for example, mountain tops, temples, burial sites or memorials, and so on
  • The relevance of this place and these objects in contemporary culture -- What significance do these places or things hold in the minds and emotions of the people? How do these places or things connect to mythological stories from that culture? What is the role of place and the associated objects?
  • The most important facts to know about the surrounding culture, and etiquette and dress to follow when visiting to this place -- With what knowledge and experiences would you hope to return home?

Format your citations in the Speaker Notes and references on the final slide consistent with APA guidelines.  Use the Plagiarism Checker on your MS Word document (Speaker Notes) to make sure that all material from outside sources is cited and that your similarity index is not more than 15%.
