Womb to Tomb Example

  1. 1. This is an example of a presentation designed by a pupil (with added notes). A Rite of Passage Colour scheme and how legible the text is are both very important things to consider – how easy is your presentation to read?
  2. 2. Points to consider: • How do I make sure that I include information on all the topics on page 2 of my booklet? • How do I go about comparing the modern religion’s practices with Roman ones? Should I use a separate slide, or do it on each slide that I use? • How much information should I include on each slide?
  3. 3. My Presentation This presentation is about the comparison between a rite of passage in the time of the Romans with a religion today. The rite of passage I will be comparing is birth in the Christian religion and birth in the time of the Romans. An introduction is a useful way to explain to your audience what your presentation is about
  4. 4. A Roman Baby is born In the Roman times when a child was born they were immediately bathed by it’s nurse and then carried to its father and placed at his feet. It was the father’s choice if he wanted to keep the child or not. If the father took the child into his arms, it showed he accepted full responsibility for its upbringing. If the baby was ill or wasn’t wanted the father would leave the baby at his feet. This meant that the baby was not accepted, it was then abandoned and left to die. Remember – keep your text short! The audience doesn’t have time to read an essay on each slide!
  5. 5. The Naming Ceremony If the child was accepted, it was named at a ceremony, eight days after its birth, if it was a girl, nine days after its birth, if it was a boy. In this ceremony the baby was given a bulla, a lucky charm. It was necessary in the case of Roman citizens to register a child’s birth within thirty days. This amount of text is just about okay. Think about pictures – they are a good way of capturing your audience’s attention and helping them to remember your point.
  6. 6. Sound and Animation… “Woohoo! We get to make things move and make funny noises!” Or not. While animation and sound (if you know how to use them) can help hold your audience’s attention, they do get a bit tiring after a while. Tip: Don’t use every animation possible. Keep it simple and consistent all the way through.
  7. 7. What happens today? The birth of a Roman baby is very different compared to a birth of a child nowadays. In Cross1 Christianity when a baby is born it is immediately accepted into the family. The baby can be named when ever the parents have decided on one. In Christianity there is a ceremony called a baptism. In the baptism A good introductory slide. the child is welcomed into the Simple text and the picture religion. makes clear what is being talked about.
  8. 8. What happens in the Baptism? The baptism takes place in a Church, around the font. This is like a bowl on a stand. It holds the water for the baptism. Its position near the Church entrance, symbolises that baptism is the door through which babies pass to become members of the Church. During the service the baby is sprinkled with water three times as a symbol of forgiveness. The clothes of the baby are removed and it is submerged beneath the water. As the baby is too young to speak fot itself, two godparents and the Althoughspeakpupil has broken up the information with well-placed parents this on its behalf. During the service they are asked three animation, by the priest LOT of text.make promises on asleep yet? child. questions this is still a and in reply Have you fallen behalf of the Then as the priest makes the sign of the cross on the baby’s forehead with water, he or she says. “ I baptise you in the name of the Father, and the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” The priest may then give the child’s parents a lighted candle, saying to them: “This is to show that you have passed from darkness to light,” to which the congregation replies: “Shine as a light in the world to the glory of God the Father.” Each member of the congregation takes on the responsibility of helping to bring up the child in the Christian faith by surrounding him or her with their love.
  9. 9. baptism Ah ha! Pictures. Nice ones, too. Perhaps these could have helped to break up the text?
  10. 10. Conclusion There is a very big difference between a birth of a Roman child and a birth of a child today. The Roman attitude differs from ours because nowadays no matter what sex the baby is or if it has a disability it is never abandoned and left to die. Roman babies were usually born to support the Roman empire. This pupil leaves comparison to the end. What exactly does she compare here? Is there anything missing?
