  1. Im doing my written task 2 right now on The Things They Carried, my question is "How and why is a social group represented in a particular way?". I was wondering if you guys could please give me some ideas on what to write
  2. Hi guys, I'm doing my written task 2 on persepolis and im doing question 1.. any tips?
  3. Hi, My written task 2 is due soon and i do not have any ideas what to do it on. It should be related to part 1 and 2 and I have not yet found any ideas. Please help.
  4. I've chosen Camus' The Stranger to write on for my WT2. I've decided to break the essay up into the relationships of minor characters and how they foil Meursault, but my teacher recommended I add technique analysis as well. What exactly is meant by technique analysis? Am I supposed to analyze Camus' purpose of introducing the characters at certain points? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  5. I have a question about Written Task 2, regarding the question "How and Why is a Social Group Represented in a Certain Way?". My teacher says we could talk about more than one social group and that this will show a larger scope of understanding, but would it really give a better grade (writing skills aside), or is it wiser to stick to one social group? Any other input regarding WT2 and the selected question would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Hi! My English teacher is very good, but she apparently got a little messed up with the IB guides. The guide explains that the WT2 is a critical essay in response to a book covered in the syllabus. My options are pretty limited, as I find our entire syllabus boring as hell, it's all about black people, colonialism, and african culture. Besides, our books are very odd and inaccessible to read, such as Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea. My teacher said that if I don't feel enormously enthusiastic about any of these, I could pick a book of my own that I felt could help me to explain colonialism and imperialism. I love The Time Machine, and so I am already halfway my essay, and the first draft is fue this Friday. Then started to creep me the fear that the IB could penalize me for using a book not covered in class. My doesn't have the slightest doubt that this is possible, but there is nothing specifically referring this alternative in the guide. If crap goes wrong, who's going to be liable for not doing as stated in the guide?
  7. Hi guys! I'm really confused about WT2. I want to use the question How and why is a social group represented in a particular way, but how do I go about it? Do I change the topic to be something like, How and why are immigrants represented in a positive way in John Agard's Listen Mr Oxford Don, or do I state the particular social group and way in the introduction? Thank you so much! (Also, the topic's not final yet, I'm not going to use 'positive', I just can't come up with anything else right now.)
  8. Hello to everyone, I have been assigned to write a Written Task 2, and the text that will be used is "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien. The question that I will be answering is: "How and why is a social group represented in a particular way?" The social group that I want to discuss is "the soldiers". My questions are: Should i concentrate on one specific chapter and discuss how the soldiers are presented? Also can anyone please give me suggestions on what things i could possibly discuss in this Written task and why are the soldiers presented in a particular way. Thanks for helping
  9. So I'm doing my critical response (WT2) on a fox news article about an amendment to the U.S. constitution which would grants Congress and the states the power to regulate the raising and spending of money and in-kind equivalents with respect to federal and state elections, respectively. My prescribed question is:'' How and why could this text be interpreted differently by two different readers?'' So I chose to write one paragraph on how it could be interpreted by republicans and one on how it could be interpreted by democrats. My problem now is that I'm unsure what to write the other paragraph about. I thought I might just write about the amendment in general, but I have no clue whether this would be allowed or whether I could apply the P.I.E. structure to this. So does anyone know whether writing about this would be ok?
  10. I chose the question: how could the text be read and interpreted differently by two different readers? for my written task 2 question. The article I chose to analyze is about Facebook and how it causes stress due to the wide range of 'friends' (such as coworkers, bosses, family, etc.) a user has. the 2 different readers I chose are a grandparent and a teen. I'm stumped on how to go about this. my teacher told me to "make sure it relates back to the text." and I sort of understand what he means... to be entirely honest, I didn't do well on my last written task 2 so ANY tips would be appreciated. thank you!
  11. Hey everyone, I'm taking French A Language and Literature HL and we're finishing up the Written Task 2 - the essay response to one of the six prescribed questions in the Lang Lit Subject Guide. I chose to do the question: How and why is a social group represented in a particular way? and need to translate it. Does anyone have the French language copy of the subject guide with the questions in French? I can't find it online. If so, could you please tell me how they phrase that question? It's question 1 in the Power and privilege section. Thanks!!
  12. Hello! I'm doing my Written Task 2 on media analysis. I just had a quick question. Am I allowed to base it on two similar adverts, or must I base it on one? What are the restrictions? Also, apparently this advert was a parody. If I mention that and go into detail about why someone would make a parody of it, would this advert be usable? Thank you everyone in advance, hope you had a merry Christmas and a happy holiday!
  13. Admittedly i don't know what the exact specifications for this written task are, if someone could clarify as to what it is that would be superb. Thanks for the help!
  14. I have a quick question. If I am doing a written task 2 with a prescribed question that says "How could the text be red and interpreted differently by two different readers?" what criteria should I exactly hit in my two paragraphs representing the different interpretations. Is there a correct format? Obviously intro, 1st interpretation, 2nd, maybe 3rd, conclusion, but how should those middle two or three paragraphs be set up? I am doing my WT2 on the poem "Mending Wall" by Robert Frost and my lens' of interpretation are rationalism the type of reader who would agree with the speaker and traditionalism the type of reader who would agree with the neighbor. (The neighbor and speaker are the two characters of the poem) Thanks.
  15. Hello! I am going to write my first written task 2 very soon and was hoping I could get some advice. I have decided to write about Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, which is one of the works we have studied and the one I liked the most. I am thinking about doing question 3) How and why is a social group represented in a particular way? Here I could discuss how the social group of Kambili (the main character), which is rich and catholic, compares to the social group of her Grandfather and Aunt, which is more focused on the old Gods of Nigeria and are not very rich. Do you think this is a good idea? Am I on the right track?
  16. Hello, this is my first time at this forum! I am from Uruguay and English isn´t my native language but I go to a bilingual school so it isn´t so difficult for me to communicate. I am taking Language and Literature HL The problem is that this week I have to give my first draft of the Written Task 2 about Part 1 and Part 2 of the syllabus (This year we did Task 1 about Part 3 and 4) Do you think that I can take a speech from George W. Bush and play with his ideology? I mean transforming it into a speech made by a politician from the Democratic party. I don´t know if there is any problem if the speech isn´t in the book but also I don´t know how to classify this, if it is part of Part 1 or Part 2. Please help me! Regards,
  17. Hello! I will be writing a Written Task 2 soon and I was wondering what other people had experienced when having to write this essay. How complicated is it? Is it better to write it on a literature piece or in an article from the language part? Which of the questions did you choose? Thanks in advance!
  18. I have recently handed in my critical response and I was wondering whether I could publish it digitally - on my website for instance. Or should I wait until I get the results back first? Thanks ~m
  19. Hi, I am currently finalizing my Critical Response (Written Task 2) for my HL language class. I answered one of the six questions and I wondered if my response also has to show an understanding of the learning outcomes of the Part the text is chosen. Maybe you know from your teacher or you can tell me from the criteria?! Thanks in advance :-) ____________________ The following criteria apply to the criticial response that HL students write on one of the six prescribed questions. Criterion A - Outline - 2 marks For the critical response, students are asked to write a brief outline of the task that includes the following: The prescribed question to which the task refers The title of the text, or texts, that the student analyzes The part of the course to which the task corresponds (Parts 1-4) Four or more bullet-points that explain the content of the task Criterion B - Response to question - 8 marks To achieve top marks for this criterion, students must explore all of the implications of the prescribed question chosen. The critical response must be focused on and relevant to the prescribed question. Furthermore, the response is supported by well chosen examples from the text(s). Criterion C - Organization and argument - 5 marks The response must be well organized and effectively structured in order to score top marks for this criterion. The response should make a case and develop it thoroughly. Remember: The critical response must be 800 -1,000 words. If this is not the case 2 marks will be deducted for Criterion C. Criterion D - Language and style - 5 marks The response must be written effectively and accurately. Students should use an academic register and strong style.
