  1. Thank you! That really helps a lot! You made something that seemed so complicated in my head seem so simple I think I'm just really stressed
  2. Hopefully this bump up will be more successful
  3. You could write diary entries in the perspective of an outside character, someone who was barely mentioned in the book. You could even create your own character! This way your written task will be more focused on character analysis from an outsider's point of view, and that will lessen the chance of you losing marks for being "out of character"
  4. Well there's a food chemistry option in Chemistry, how about you read that chapter and see if anything there interests you? The Human biochemistry option (also in chemistry) can be quite helpful too since it has a lot of information about the macro-molecules: Protein, Lipids, Nucleic Acids, and Carbohydrates. There's also a Human Biochemistry option in biology, so maybe you could read that and see the different methodology it was approached in chemistry and biology and then pick the subject that used the methodology you preferred? Oh, and biology also has a nutrition option if that's an angle you want to look at
  5. Going to try and bump this up so it'll gain more attention
  6. Okay, time for an update on my research question! Now it's: In What Ways and To What Effect Does Lewis Carroll Express His Opinions About British Politics in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There"? But alas, a new problem has shown itself and reared its ugly head. For "What Ways", I can talk about Carroll's use of: Stylistic Devices John Tenniel's art Semantics Characterization (dialogue) But I'm a little confused about "To What Effect", nonetheless, this is what I got so far: Original Audience= Victorian= Children--> To warn them/ make them realize how corrupted the system is/ educate them in a fun way Adults--> ridicule their silence/ rebuke them for aiding this corruption/ make them realize how corrupted the system is Note: * At the time (Victorian Era) it wasn't rare to use writing as a means to mock politics and Victorian societies (e.g. Oscar Wilde). Modern Audience= Why is this text still popular? Why is it considered a "classic"?--> It satirically represents the still relateable theme and situation of a corrupted government Am I on the right track? Or am I WAY off? Also any suggestions for both is appreciated
  7. Thank you! Yes, I do think that two books are quite enough for an EE. Hopefully, that'll lessen the work load.
  8. So my question started out as a "to what extent" question but I changed it when I realized that I have to talk about to what extent it does and doesn't do the... thing. So now my question is "How and why does Lewis Carroll express his opinions about British Politics in Alice's Adventures Through Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking-Glass (and what she found there), and Phantasmagoria?" Do you think that's narrow enough? They suddenly sprung this draft due date upon us with only a two week's notice and I just wanted to check before I commit. Next question will be about the resources So I've been using "The Annotated Alice" for... annotating. And I dog eared any page that has a reference to politics and how I can analyze Carroll's books as a political allegory (satire). This book has helped a lot during yesterdays 9 am- 4am annotating session for the two alice books. However I'm having trouble connecting Phantasmagoria to politics even though I have this gut feeling that its riddled with references. I've been looking online and can't find anything but a Marilyn Manson movie *sigh*. Even if I can analyze it satirically and prove it with my own ideas and opinions, it wouldn't be as reliable as having a valid resource for it. So do you guys have any ideas? Also what do you think of my topic in general? It really interests me and amongst my frantic annotating, research, and (hopefully today) outlining, the fact that I love this subject and my supervisor has kept me going. I'm still in shock that this thing is due this thursday, nonetheless, I shall flourish in the wake of chaotic IB drama. Hopefully I'll start and finish my outline today (another all-nighter) so that I can go over it with the doctor tomorrow. Which reminds me, do you guys know any good outline format for something as long as the EE? It would really help if you did Thank you in advance, my fellow IB survivors.
  9. Thanks, I'll probably use the first one because the second one limits me too much. I am going to use the books you mentioned in the second one, but I'm also using a poem he wrote about ghosts; and maybe other texts if I find more.
  10. As a means** I'm sorry I'm just so sleepy, my spelling mistakes are out of control.
  11. To what extent does Lewis Carrol use his writing as means to express his opinions about real-life problems? English, category one Is it narrow enough? Also, when I say real-life problems I could be using it incorrectly. An example of what'll I'll be talking about is how he expresses his opinions about the monarchy in Britian. Is that called a real-life problem? Or is it an issue? What**
  12. NoNo_XD

    English EE

    Also, in the poisonwood bible, one of the characters had autism, so anytime the story is told from her point of view, the writing is backwards! That's how it's linked to structure. I also remember how Carroll wanted Jabberwocky to be mirrored when printed in the book, but the publishers said they couldn't do it.

    English EE

    Sorry, my question is, which area would be more appropriate for IB? I'd link both to different areas of knowledge but still. Also I don't take IB physchology so is the second one more of IB Psych rather than IB English? Even if I talk about satirical texts and how there purpose is to comment on society? Ex: A Modest Proposal by Swift
