Illustrate the data collection and analysis process and how this data will be used to inform organizational improvement using Piktochart, Canva, or some other tool. You can represent this information in any visual format that works best for you.

In addition to the flowchart, you will explain (1-2 pages) of the diagram that explains anything the audience might overlook or misinterpret.  Consider this section the overview you would give in a meeting to a roomful of stakeholders.  What should be in the overview that helps clarify critical points in the process?  What kinds of questions do you anticipate stakeholders asking about the flowchart?

Character Creation Paper
We have studied several mythological archetypes from around the world, in different cultural contexts and time periods. We have spent a significant amount of time in the course analyzing the archetypes of hero and trickster, in particular. You have the opportunity to create a character that fits the mythological archetype of either hero or trickster in this assignment and write that characters explanatory myth. What archetype will you choose, either hero or trickster?

Use at least three examples from our assigned readings throughout the course to support and explain your choices. Include a Works Cited/References in either APA format.

Requirements:

First, create your archetypal character with a specific social identity by answering these questions. You can write out each question and put the answer below it.

What will be the physical elements of your character?
Is your archetypal character deity, demi-god, or human?
Is your character anthropomorphic (think of Loki, the shape-shifter)?
What are your characters motivations?
What is the family dynamic for your character?
Does your character follow the Heros Journey or does your character play a part in the Heros Journey for someone else?
What is the social identity of your character?
In what culture is your character living?
Second, write an explanatory myth for your character. The myth should be 250-300 words.  For the plot, youll need to identify an issue from our culture or another culture, either past or present, which gives your story and character some context.  Your character should be struggling with an ethical dilemma, one that relates to a power struggle or societal inequality (based in our culture or another culture, either of the present or past.) For example, think of the tricksters from African-American mythology. Remember what our Module Notes in M5 stated:

Trickster tales flourished as a response to scarcity and hardship. Privation reflected the injustice of the slave holding system. In Africa, shortages were due to natural disasters and war. In North America,  shortages came from slavery and those in power keeping the abundance for themselves. Looking at the  relationship between the trickster and the dupe shows us a reflection of the power struggles and power inequality in the cultures that produced these tales. The stories do not favor either trickery or trust. Instead, the tales capture the most important ethical dilemmas of both the individual and societyfor instance, slavery. These stories give the reader and listener moral distance to analyze situations with more objectivity and offer them space to evaluate challenging issues.

Once you have identified your ethical and cultural issue, put your character in a situation along the Heros Journey (some examples: passing the threshold, meeting the goddess, separating from the father figure). Write about his or her actions in that cultural situation and ethical dilemma which will reveal the personality and social identity of your character. 

Third, answer the following question:

Why did you make the choices about your character that you did? Why did you draw from certain sources? Lastly, please include and explicitly state what cultural issue (from the past or the present) that you created your myth around.  Your response to this question should be 100-150 words.

Evaluation

This assignment will be graded using the Character Creation Project Grading Rubric located on the Course Rubrics page within the Start Here section of the course. Please review the rubric prior to beginning your work so that you ensure your submission meets the criteria in place for this assignment. This assignment is worth 30% of your final course grade.

Vampire as Hero/Vampire as Villain

How important is self-control? Can this concept move a character typically categorized as a villain into the realm of the hero? This discussion question asks us to consider whether or not a vampires ability to exercise self-control is enough to change the way he/she is viewed, from the archetype of villain to the archetype of hero.

After reading Chapter 44, return to page 778 of your text, particularly the paragraph regarding vampiric feeding, and review your notes from the episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel that was assigned viewing for this module. Return, also, to your notes on heroes from previous modules to help you complete this activity.

In your initial post, discuss the difference between the vampire as hero and the vampire as villain. Explain how this compares with our concept of the hero from previous modules, and evaluate whether the vampire can be truly considered a hero as defined in mythology. Use our readings and the required episode Angel as evidence for your analysis.

M5D1: Morally Acceptable Trickster Behavior?
.
Looking at the behavior of our tricksters from Chapter 25 in the text, especially Anansi, lets consider whether or not their actions were morally acceptable with respect to the characters who were in positions of power within the myths. The definition of morality (Links to an external site.) according to the philosopher Plato is a code of conduct put forward by a society or culture.

In your initial post, explain how the tricksters actions could be viewed as morally acceptable behavior under conditions of extreme physical hardship (again, think of scarcity and privation). Consider Anansi in Why They Name the Stories for Anansi, in particular, along with one other myth from Chapter 25 your choice and compare the trickster character Anansi and the trickster from the myth you chose with Platos definition of morality. Did the trickster behave morally or immorally? Why?
