IOP Ideas

Recommended Posts

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?

She's a brilliant prose stylist. That could be the focus of your IOP investigation and talk-- the way she brilliantly incorporates dialogue, observation and sharp evaluation in her pieces and captures a particular impression, look or tone. You would expand this discussion of style by linking it up to how she captures the zeitgeist of the 1960 and 70s in her "White Album", for instance. 

Alternatively, you could focus on a topic/theme that run through her essays and show how she develops her ideas on these. It's not hard, really.
