The objective of this project is to obtain a better understanding of interactive timelines enhanced with digital media images, sound clips, and video clips. For this project, think of someone from the 21st century who can be considered a modern day tragic hero. This person can be a political figure, a pop culture icon, an athlete, or a film/television star who fits the qualities of the tragic hero archetype. Your choice should ideally meet at least 5 of the 6 criteria established by Aristotle. Once you have made your choice, you will be creating a digital timeline using Timeline JS. You are expected to use a variety of media to document at least ten major events in your tragic hero’s life. Five of those events should correlate with the tragic hero criteria. Then, write a script for your presentation that discusses how he or she meets the criteria and be prepared to present your work to the class.
As you work, save your project as in the timeline program. Once completed copy the link and submit using the form on the right.
