  14. This is a commentary on Ted Hughes' poem Earth-Moon. It is one of the best commentaries I had ever written in that it received a perfect 7 (25/25 raw score) and it was days before our Paper 1 for IB, so it was the last practice poem we did. I hope you find it useful. The actual poem isn't attached with the document, so look it up online and read it before going through the commentary or I'm afraid you will be quite confused.

  21. This is my reflective statement in English A: Literature on the stranger/the outsider by Albert Camus. In the new English A syllabus you are required to write a reflective statement based on an interactive oral to show your understanding of culture and the context. This is just to show you how to write this reflective statement, as it is a rather new thing in the IB and many might not have received the proper instructions from their teachers.
    Things to remember:
    Write in first person, very informal piece of writing
    Consider what you discussed during the interactive oral
    What have you learned and understood from the discussions
    What questions do you still have/would like to explore further
    Write 300-400 words
    If students write fully and honestly, they should be able to get the 3 marks. No language criteria here
