  1. Hi guys, I'm in my 1st year of the DP and we're going to be doing our IOP in January - so far we've done 'The Great Gatsby', 'De:TALES' and 'In Praise of Shadows'. Right now, I'm thinking of doing a presentation on how Tanizaki (author of 'In Praise of Shadows') portrayed the Japanese way of life similar to that of the way of life which is recommended in Heidegger's 'Sein und Zeit'*. I was also thinking of doing a presentation on the difference of the perception of beauty in 'The Great Gatsby' and 'In Praise of Shadows'. I'd really appreciate some help! I'm indecisive as hell and my English teacher isn't really helping me out... *I feel as if I would lose the literary nature of the presentation through this Thanks in advance
  2. So im doing an IOP on Cormac MacCarthy's the road and i was gonna work on the theme off Trust and how the Characters of the man and the boy present the difference in their approach. I don't even know where to begin my teacher wants me to re read the book but im lazy and have no motivation please help :'(
  3. My friend and i are doing our IOP and we are finding it hard to make it creative, or how to intrigue the audience we are looking for more unique was rather than jokes, powerpoints/prezis, etc
  4. I'm having my IOP's in German soon. We looked at the Books Jakob der Lügner, Homo Faber and Das Parfüm. We also watched the films. Generally speaking does any of you have any recommendation what to do if we have to analyze and compare two works? What specific aspect would you look at?
  5. I'm not sure if anyone's doing this book but i'm basing my IOP on "The English Teacher" by R.K Narayan focusing on the effect of language in the book or the portrayal of Indian culture and stereotypes in the book. I don't want to g the analytical way because that's what i did the past two times so any one have any ideas for presenting it in a creative way? Thanks
  6. Our english teacher told us that the audience's reaction to our presentation will also be an important part of our grade. So our teacher will deduct points from our gades if he notices people sleeping or looking disinterested. Do you guys know how to make an audience full of teenagers actually look interested during a presentation ?
  7. My IOP is next week and I don't know what to do. I wanted to do drawings showing the dynamic development of Marguerite, but I don't know how to present it. Like how do I open the presentation? and how do I close it? Please help.
  8. I have my IOP coming up for ELA and I am still having some trouble to come up with solid ideas on what to say and how I should present it. I'm doing my IOP on "The Great Gatsby" with the topic "Discuss the potential that Daisy is the antagonist in the novel." I choose to talk about how Daisy’s character is controversial, as one may argue that her presence is detrimental to Gatsby’s life; therefore, Daisy is a catalyst for Gatsby demise. I have a few ideas for the subject, but I wanted to hear about other people's opinions on how she acts as the antagonist within the novel. Thank you
  9. Hi, Criterion B for the IOP evaluates the strategies used to interest the audience. In order to get full marks for this criterion, do I need to create unique/creative strategies (e.g. a skit, an interactive component), or will the usual presentation strategies suffice? (Like audibility, eye contact, gestures). Thanks!
  10. Hello all! For my individual oral presentation for IB Literature, I am planning to give a performance based off of the book The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. I want to do a performative-type IOP, where I will be talking from the point of view of one of the characters named Dave Jensen. The purpose of my IOP will be to explain/perform the development of his relationship with another character in the story and what that means for Jensen himself. I was a bit confused on how to do this at first, but my idea now is this: my IOP will take the form of my character writing several diary entries, each creating a near story-arc in the characters' relationship. While reading aloud the entries I will be miming the actions that I describe in the diary. I feel that this can help me build emotion while still digging deep into what one of the characters is feeling. My main question, however, is about the "analytical purpose" of this performance. Acting is great and all, but is that enough? If I had to physically analyze the character, how would I be able to do that in a dramatic performance rather than a formal speech? Should I include a little introduction describing what my performance is supposed to convey? And if so, should that introduction simply be that "this performance seeks to reveal Dave Jensen's characteristic that _______" ? I'm sorry for bombarding you with questions, but I hope that this was specific enough to ask for help. Thank you!
  11. Hello fellow IB students, IOP presentations start in a couple of weeks for my class and I am having a hard time thinking of a topic. We have to focus on the authors James Baldwin or Joan Didion and their works. We have been reading essays written by them in class. Does anyone have any IOP topic suggestions?
  12. Hello, I have decided to do a poem for my IOP since it seems like the easiest option, but I really don't know which one I should do. Does anyone have any suggestions for good poems? I would also appreciate suggestions regarding presentation ideas for Wide Sargasso Sea or Zoo Story!
  13. I'm doing my IOP on 1984 by George Orwell and how is it similar to president trump. should I change my topic?
  14. I have to start doing my IOP and I get to choose from "Hamlet" by Shakespeare, "1984" by George Orwell and "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelly. I chose "Hamlet" and I was thinking about doing my topic on Horatio. The topic would be about what I think the sequel to "Hamlet" would be and what would happen in it. I want to make my presentation really interesting so any suggestions? Also, is my topic a valid one for the IOP?

  16. Hi guys!! I'm in need. I must admit Lang A is not my best subject, but unfortunately I still have to do all the assigments, in this case, IOP. The title of my IOP is "how Conrad portrayed colonialism in "the Heart of Darkness" and eventhough it may sound quite easy, I do not how to start. Do you have any tips on acing the presentation? Thanks in advance x
  17. I'm having extreme difficulties in coming up with an IOP topic. I'm doing The Merchant of Venice, but any idea I come up with can't be supported or is just plain dumb. I've been reading countless other threads on this, and I found someone who said you can look at characters through a framework. His example was looking at Shylocke as a marxist; is something like this a good topic? I'd imagine you'd be able to find some evidence to support it but it would have to be taken out of context since Shakespeare couldn't possibly have been trying to achieve this. How do you choose a good topic? What am I supposed to be looking for?
  18. Hello. I have a few questions I would like to ask about my upcoming IOC and IOP in late March. I asked these questions to my teacher but she didn't seem 100% sure. 1. Can we bring as many notes as we want into the PREPARATION room, but only take in 1 A4 paper into the RECORDING room? 2. How many notes can we bring in for our IOP? 3. Is it okay if our IOC is relatively short, even 5 minutes long? (I don't aim to get a 7 in self taught, I just want to pass, but I am really worried about this because when practicing with my extracts I could only get to 5 minutes on most of them, will this be enough to pass?) 4. What happens if you simply read off your notes? (I know this is not allowed but I just wanted to know just how much it affects your grade, is it an automatic 0?) Thank you.
  19. Hello Guys, I am totally new to this site but I am panicking it is 11:40 pm here right now and my IOP is due tomorrow. I know my theme and what I am doing it on but I have no idea how to structure my power point. I am doing a comparison and romantic poetry and jazz music, and how they were both expressing freedom in their own era. Thank you so much in advance if you can help!
  20. HELP I'm going to have to do an IOP in April. The teacher gave us 3 things that we can do our IOP on which are poems by Bruce Dawe, "Othello" by Shakespeare and "Things Fall apart" by Chinua Achebe. At first, I was planning to do my IOP on Dawe's poems cause I really like his poems but after I've read "Things fall apart" I am not sure for my decision anymore because I also like "things fall apart" a lot...and I realised that the protagonists of "Things Fall Apart" and "Othello" actually has a lot of similarities and the two books both have similar themes like the roles of women in the society and reputation. I am thinking that I could do a comparison on the theme of the roles of women on"Things Fall Apart" and "Othello" but I am not sure if this is a good idea or not... It is probably easier and less workload if I just focus on just one book or a poem... Any suggestions?
  21. Hi everyone, I'm a junior working on my English IOP. Apparently I have non-verbal learning disorder, so English isn't really my strong point. But anyway, I'm working on my The Things They Carried IOP and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for what I should incorporate in my presentation. My topic, (approved by the teacher) is "How does O'Brien explore the ways in which characters deal with death" Any extra ideas or personal insights into this topic would be much much appreciated! Thanks, Nick
  22. Hey all, I just got my IOP grade for English A SL. I got 22/30 a grade 6. I was told that the grade does not matter at this point, only the points since they are added to the IOC points next year to get a grade. I also understand that the IOP is 15% of the grade and the IOP together with the IOC is 30% (right?). Anyway I knew it would be hard to hit a 7 but I am not really satisfied with what I got, I was expecting more. Is a 7 still within reach for my final grade? Need some motivation, I feel like this is a bad grade. I haven't had literature before the IB and it took me up until now to get a feel for what a thesis means and some of the literary devices. I am a science student but don't want my IB score to fall because of one subject. What would be a good approach to ensure a high final grade in English. I mean in Math and Physics I would generally just practise and solve exercises but I am not sure about English. p.s. I don't suppose it is possible to redo the IOP? Thanks!
  23. I am doing my IOP in a month or so, and we have read (and seen) the Great Gatsby as well as The Bell Jar and now we have to prepare an IOP. I really want to discuss the main character in the novel, Esther Greenwood, and her horrible, quite offensive and ablest portrayal in the 1979 movie and compare her characterization to the novel itself. The only problem I have is my teacher not giving me enough feedback. I was initially going to analyse Plath's anti-semitism but I was not allowed to do so and now I am unsure if my topic is good enough. I have a lot of good points already prepared but I still feel as if my topic is not "right". While my teacher is good at what they do, they tend to forget to explain and guide us, even if asked to, and I find myself very confused about what the IOP is supposed to be about. Is there anyone who could maybe give me some feedback or help me out?
  24. Hey all, I take English A SL and need to do my IOP after Christmas break. I have decided to do it on The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. My Thesis is: "The story creates an atmosphere that conveys a dark theme of insecurity and instability". I was to talk about punctuation, repetition,diction , the narrator , and the vulture eye (symbolism). My teacher says the thesis is too vague, that it needs to be falsifiable. What does this mean? And what can I come up with as an alternative. I want to be done quickly so that I can rehearse and perfect my presentation. All help is appreciated, I haven't had English literature before.
  25. Hey, I have an IOP practice coming up next week and it has to be on a work of fiction that comments on an issue or a tendency in society. For example the Crucible by Arthur Miller. I have no idea and i desperately need help. Any suggestions for works of fiction? please help!
