  3. Polish A HL: how to analyze poetry? (jak analizować poezję?)

    This is a scheme for analyzing poetry our language A teacher provided us with before individual oral. It was taken from http://www.loprez.pl/liceum/pliki, but I think you'd have to dig deeper to actually find it. They really helped me with my IOC. Remember, this is only one way to analyze poetry, you may be used to different scheme and find this one illogical, or it may help you finally perfect your method of presenting your analysis.

  17. IOP Speech: Footnotes in Consider the Lobster

    This is the text of my IOP speech from this past semester for English HL- it's on the use of footnotes in David Foster Wallace's essay Consider the Lobster. First, I used examples from the text to show how the footnotes can be used to fit traditional rhetorical roles (pathos, ethos, logos). At the end I briefly discussed the use of footnotes (why use them at all?), especially as it relates to Wallace's worldview.
    It received a perfect score but you can judge whether or not it was deserving!
