  2. Hey I am from India and I am doing Extended Essay in Hindi and I am stuck up with what topic should I take and how to take a topic and how to go on with it. I have taken help from my teacher but he has just given the broader topic like language, literature and culture-society but I need a more focused topic to frame my research question. So can anyone please guide me through the topics Thank you
  3. For Paper 2 in English A Lang & Lit HL, my class studied multiple poems written by Philip Larkin and Murakami's "Kafka on the Shore". My question is: in Paper 2, we have to refer to two texts that we have studied in class, so, if I choose to cover "Kafka on the Shore" and Larkin, should I talk about only one of his poems? Or can I talk about a number of his poems?
  4. Hello fella ib students! I am very new to this, but I desperately need help to any of you who are willing to I am doing my EE on english lit, and my topic is: "an examination of Emily Dickinson's treatment of nature on a selection of her poetry." My supervisor suggested me to choose this topic. Now, my research question, I believe, can still be refined, and so far what I got is "How does Emily Dickinson’s treatment of nature in [four to six] of her poems help to convey her questions in life and her psychological state of mind?" What do you think? I am a little bit concerned that I will focus too much on her life/biography, and from what I've read in the IB guide it says that “Essays that interpret literary works in terms of the writer’s life tend to produce reductive readings based on second-hand information. Such essays receive low marks and the IB therefore advises students to avoid biographical topics.” My supervisor said that I dont have to worry too much since I can just focus on how the poems convey the meaning of life in general than oppose to what the poet thinks. Nonetheless, I am still in my second semester of year 11, and I think I can still develop my RQ. I have other ideas which still have Dickinson's nature poems as a focus: - Comparative study on her nature poems with other poets. - Focus on the two ways she approach or represent nature in her poems. I would really appreciate anyone's help tbh!! Give me your opinions
  5. I'm making a film about the theme of identity in the novel The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. My video is centered around the concept that the materials we possess and use everyday make up a large part of human identity. It will feature an individual going through their daily life, and with each material they use, a new color or symbol is painted on their face to represent how it becomes part of their identity. It's not until all of the materials are taken away that the individual will have no paint left on their face. Because this film is primarily silent, I was planning on writing a poem to voiceover on top of it. I was hoping to have other IB students contribute an original line or verse about how materials make up identity to add within the poem. Please respond with a line that I can include within the poem to make this project more global. Thank you!:)

    Poem Analysis Question

    Hi! I'm doing a poetry assignment (Scaffolding by Seamus Heaney) where I have to answer a few questions. I came to one question and I am not quite sure what it exactly wants. Question: What strikes you most about this poem in terms of knowledge of self and others? (base your answers for these questions off of the description of how this poem acts a metaphor) I'd just like to get this clarified so that I can answer appropriately, Thanks everyone!

    oral commentary poetry recommendations? (Walt Whitman)

    I'm currently taking my first language as english in Mexico and was just now told what poetry i'll be analyzing next week for the the oral commentary. They're going to let me choose three poems from the writer Walt Whitman and then they will decide from which of those following three poems my oral commentary will be about. I'm not familiar with the work of Walt Whitman, but if someone out there is and would like to recommend me one of his poems then be my guest. Thank you.

    IOP on Poetry

    I am a student of Grade 11 and I have my final IOP due in about a month or so. I was browsing through a few previous forums on how to go on about doing your IOP but many of them seem to focus on books. As I'm still quire new to IB could someone please help me understand how one should do an IOP on english poetry? The poems we've done in class are that of Robert Frost Thanks in advance!
  9. 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.
  10. Hi there, My partner and I have decided to do our final IOP on the Hollow Men by T.S. Elliot. We haven't decided our topic as of yet though we have some ideas. What we are stuck on is how to present a poem creatively (as in not in the traditional presentation format). So far in our class for the practice IOP poems have been presented traditionally. Any ideas regarding on how you/your classmate presented the Hollow Men or presented poetry in general is much appreciated. Tips on how to do the IOP are also welcome. Thanks! (^ v ^)
  11. So I've just started my 11th grade year in IB, and I was looking into extended essay topics, as every senior tells me that if I don't have a topic soon and do at least some of it over the summer, I'll be in hell next year. I wanted to do an essay in english, and the first question I submitted to my advisor was "How well does spoken word poetry deliver its message in comparison to written poetry?" My advisor said that the question isn't researchable enough, and that I need to plan out how I'd compare the two (like through what guidelines and rules would they be measured by) and I was hoping someone here could help me work on that. I'm new to IB, and IB Survival, so be gentle please.

  16. Hello, I am sure some of you writing your exams in the next few months or the next year will find this helpful. I am writing to ask how to further improve my poetry analysis skills before the exam. When I read a poem, here is how I approach the commentary: 1) I read it again 2) I look for the main idea 3) I note down any aspects I see fit the following categories: speaker, setting, structure, tone, title, themes, literary devices 4) I then construct my thesis statement, and essay outline 5) I write my commentary I have read through many past HL and SL poems and done some analysis on them to practice. However, I usually find my interpretation off or inaccurate to other individual's essays. And also, my interpretation does not fully meet the requirements of an excellent essay on the marking scheme. I was wondering what I could do to improve it? I am writing my IB HL English exam in May 2016. Many thanks.

    Subject for Extended Essay

    Hey, before Christmas break I have to ask a teacher to be my supervisor and since I was leaning towards doing something with poetry I was going to ask my English teacher. But before I do that I wanted to specify and narrow down my subject. First of all, I really like Maya Angelou's stuff it's so raw and real and i feel like I can go in so many different directions. I was wondering if anybody would help me pick a route and shape a question like the way she objectifies women to prove a point, the way her harshness portrays the truth or maybe the way her choice of words conveys the reality of the time it was written. Thanks, if anybody has any better ideas or has written an Extended Essay on poetry has any better ideas I'd love to hear them! I'll put a link below if anybody wants to read her poems I'm surprised at how much I like them and even if I don't write my Essay on this they were nice to read! http://www.poemhunter.com/maya-angelou/poems/

    Poetry Devices

    Hey guys, this list of poetry devices proved very helpful and useful during my revision (or last minute revision really). Also, it's a very good resource for your IOC preparations! Don't seem to find this list anywhere on this website, just thought I'd share.
  24. This is an essay written during my Y1 in the IB. It presents a neat, comprehensive analysis of the aforestated poem, i.e. After Schiller, which I reccomend everyone to read as I found it quite enjoyable. The essay makes references to specific loci in the poem, has a "fine use of language" (cit.) and is overall, a very good piece of writing according to the teacher who corrected it. Grade: 7 Enjoy!
