Multimedia Presentation If presenting: You may present this as a multimedia presentation in which you convince your audience as to why Shakespeare still does or does not matter today. For power point, you are to have 8-10 slides (Not including title slide and reference slide), with 3-5 bullets per slide. Use the notes section under each slide to discuss and explain your points; also add appropriate citations within your notes or next to bullet points. A reference list should be placed on your final slide. If using video, your video should be 2-5 minutes long, with a reference list at the end of the video. Each scene with paraphrases or quotes should also include in-text citations. Ensure you include appropriate images that enhance your presentation or video.
Assignment: Prompt 2 Description
Prompt 2—Creative Character AnalysisAnalyze one of the following characters:

1. Emilia from Emilia’s Lament

2. Hamlet from the play, Hamlet

1. Create a cartoon (with three or more strips), poem, sonnet, skit/ re-enactment scene, or news report showing what you’ve learned about one of the characters. This is a creative assignment.

2. You also need to write a brief paragraph analysis: Submit a paragraph summary explaining your work and the traits you are trying to show in the creative work you made. Does this character represent the complexities of being human? Briefly explain how he or she reflects the complexities of being human in your paragraph.

Whichever format you choose, ensure that your work is accompanied by appropriately documented sources within text, and in a reference list.

  • If choosing to do a cartoon representation of the character, ensure that you use a software program—hand-drawings will not be accepted, and you should have at least three strips with callouts. Here are a list of free software programs you may use—MS Word, Power Point, Powtoon, Animaker, Toony Tools (https://www.toonytool.com/), etc.
  • If choosing to do poem or sonnet, ensure you use poetic elements such as figurative language and other techniques to represent the traits of the character; for example, your poem could be an ode to that character; it could also be written in the voice of that character.
  • If doing a skit or re-enactment scene, ensure you include dialogue that includes words that your character would say or dialogue that represents the character’s feelings and other traits of the character.
  • If creating a news report, you could add elements such as interview questions, and other news feature elements.
