Confused for the IOP.

Recommended Posts

Hey, so i am planning on doing a IOP on "Being there" by Jerzy Kosinski. I have no idea how to do an IOP since this is my first year in IB :| My topic is "Symbolism of White". So, i'm rather confused on how we should present an IOP worth 20 minutes. Can anyone suggest anything to me???

The other day in my English class we went over some ways of presenting and my teacher had a few suggestions. To do the IOP, try to make it as interesting as possible, so try not to use powerpoint. Be creative. You can start a discussion for your presentation if you want to as well, for example, ask the students what are some symbols they know are usually white (e.g. a dove is usually white and it represents peace). You could dress in all white to have a little visual as well. I'm not sure what the "Being There" is about but perhaps you could do a little bit on the author's background and discuss why the color white shows up in his work (e.g. issue of racism in his past, growing up in a war zone - longing for peace etc) You might even do a mini-play (like a puppet play) to hold the interest of the other students. If you're allowed to work with others, perhaps you can do a debate on what the color white represents. Good luck!! :D
