Archetype in Pop Culture

Submitted by caitlinmarie19 on Mon, 2016-06-06 09:24
Harry Potter

I believe that Harry Potter and the Harry Potter series in general is an example of the 'the good always wins' archetype. In case you don't know (even though you should) Harry Potter is a very popular book and movie series that is mainly fantasy. In the novels, Harry and the rest of the good people are always in some kind of trouble, mostly to do with Voldemort. Some specific examples are: In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry is in the chamber with the basilisk, and it seems like he is for sure going to die.

Coming of Age and Angst Teenager Archetype

Submitted by Katie J. on Mon, 2016-06-06 07:20

Kylie Jenner appears on the popular reality tv show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. She is also a beauty icon with her big lips and makeup, specifically with her lip kit. The type of archetype that defines her the best is “coming of age” because everyone has been fixated on Kylie ever since she was little, and even more so now that she is an adult. “I’m 16 and still wanna be a kid sometimes” Kylie once commented on her growing up. Kylie also has everything along with her fame and fortune so she can be seen as someone who is way above the average person.

Probably Our Favorite Character In Every Story

Submitted by eric_yu2001 on Sun, 2016-06-05 20:38

There has been a type of archetype in literature that I'm sure we are all greatly fond of. It creates humor, emotion and spirit as we read the story, and we become very emotional about that character. The archetype I'm talking about is actually pinpointed to a single (or two) character, and he is usually the one that is always different from the others. You see, literature's element of conflict has the characters mainly being serious and worrying about one certain situation.

Women Shelter

Submitted by cniegos on Mon, 2016-05-23 05:33

The program started when a group of women volunteers dream of trying to helped women especially homeless women for shelter, food, and other supports that they needed. The mission of the Women’s Daytime Drop-In Center is to empower women and children to move from the streets to a home by providing ongoing and intensive counseling, case management services, transitional housing and a safe daytime refuge. It offers free services to any homeless woman and her children. Women can access WDDC services by dropping in Monday through Friday between the hours of 8am and 4pm.

The Honest Woodman

Submitted by 21biswashs on Mon, 2016-05-23 01:04

This is my Scratch animation for my Technology Class. Our goal was to make an animation of a folktale that had the protagonist make a decision. But the main goal was to make it interactive where the viewer chooses what happens in the story and decides which on ending he or she want’s to see. I believe that i did pretty well with my animation because my tech teacher showed me how to break down my goals into little mini goals so I could divide my time up for each section and we also discussed on ways we can do our work without procrastinating.

The Ant and The Dove

Submitted by 21Santon on Thu, 2016-05-19 18:24

The story I chose for this interactive scratch project was a classic Aesop fable: The Ant and The Dove. I chose this story because it shows a defined decision that the ant makes, whether to save or not save the Dove. This scratch animation has two endings so you get to decide how the story goes. I hope you enjoy it!

Script-
Act 1
-The Ant
-The Dove
-The Birdcatcher
{The Ant enters stage left and moves to a stream in the forest}
{The dove is watching from a tree branch overhead}
The Ant- Mmmm. This is going to be a nice refreshing drink.

An Adaption of "The Lion and the Mouse"

Submitted by 21leont on Tue, 2016-05-17 19:58

This story is "The Lion and the mouse" It is a story of friendship. I chose this story because it has a great moral, the moral is to not judge the book by it's cover or in other words to not judge someone or something by what it looks like. In my scratch animation I made it interactive which lets the viewer pick whether or not they help the Lion. The story went through planning, by starting with a script (which is above) and the storyboard (which are below).

 

The Princess Who Never Smiled

Submitted by 21guptashem on Mon, 2016-05-16 18:57

This story was a very interesting story when I saw it. I was browsing through different Folk and Fairy Tales and I came across this one and it really intrigued me.It included a moral desicion that I hold very close to my heart- kindness.

CHARACTERS- beetle, toucan, worker, boss, princess Euna, father
Father- Why won't you smile?
Princess Euna- I don't know.
Father- I vow to get the man that can make you smile and laugh will marry you.
Princess Euna- No one can.
Meanwhile…

Good Decision
Boss- You may now take as much coins as you want.

Ebonics

Submitted by cniegos on Mon, 2016-05-16 18:14

Ebonics came from the ebony word which means a very hard dark wood of a tropical tree, used especially for making furniture. The ebony ties with ebonics because of the connection of the word of definition and it means 'black speech' (a blend of the words ebony 'black' and phonics 'sounds').

The Raven

Sorry the picture Backwards

This advertisement represents on how people being stress and going through depression. This bird is tending to be prescribed with medication to get rid of its stressful life. The raven shows that when you take pills and get addicted to them you become crazy and emotional. When you sad and depressed people lead to take drugs and pills is the biggest killer of them all. I feel that when you going through life losing a loved one you should take therapy to express how you feel in your mind. Don't take life for granted but live life to the fullest and continue to press forward!

Modern design

Submitted by gordona16 on Wed, 2016-04-20 10:34

Cars are looking better than they have in years, a lot of years. With spectacular lines and accessories to follow, we aren't only driving the present, but the future. Cars off all makers and models are getting the big picture nowadays. I personally don't like to look at cars of the 90's and early 2000's and I know I'm not alone. Before this time period, we had innovation, but not necessarily fuel efficiency. Safety standards were increasing and cars were looking sleek and fast. As we started to lean towards fuel efficient cars over looks, some wild and often ugly ideas came to mind.

Love operator

Submitted by tsaeteurn on Sun, 2016-04-17 23:27

This image is about the poem called "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. The main problem in the poem is that Poe can't cope with the loss of his loved one. This image is an advertisement for a service that will help his withdraws. The X-rays shows that Poe still has a heart. The raven is a symbol of of a good omen and refers to the poem. The writing just means that only time will truly mend the the heart aches. The books and the animal on the phone represents the activities you can do to keep you situated. And it is all overlaid with the symbol of peace.

Does funk carioca express the struggle of favela life or does it glorify gang life?

Dragons in Cultures

Submitted by MPShirzu on Sun, 2016-04-10 19:03

During my research, I learned that in the ancient times, dragons were often seen as evil, destructive, and bringers of death. For example, the dragon Apophis in Egyptian mythology was the enemy of Ra, the sun god. Babylonian creation myths describe the dragon-like monster Tiamat, who was associated with chaos. Dragons also played a crucial role in the Bible, where they were frequently identified with Satan.

Is Your Brain Being Fooled?

Submitted by Max_B on Fri, 2016-04-08 13:01

For my research project I have decided to look into magic and how people are fooled by tricks and illusions. I love magic so this is really interesting for me. I have learned about the "blind spots" we have in our attention. It talks about how slight movements and little focus points can keep us from seeing the bigger picture of things. Misdirection is also key in any magic trick. You need to make others focus on something you really don't want them to focus on. It just is in the study to act as a distraction.
