  1. Hi all, i've been given an assignment by the teacher to find the KI (knowledge issue) and i've come up with "To what extent is habit stronger than reason in the areas of ethics and the arts?" My teacher says the "arts" as an AOK is not very appropriate. Also, i've got no idea how to start my essay/research! Can anyone help? Much appreciated and Happy New Year!
  2. I'm actually very interested in Simon's death too. What dyou think led up to his death and what were the after effects?
  3. Great point that they actually did start to speak another language. Yet another piece of evidence that they have separated themselves from the society they were born in and created another identity for themselves!
  4. In fact, they both get killed. However, Simon's death signifies the release in anger and the total mayhem and disruption on the island without the presence of civilization.
  5. Hello guys, i've read the book Lord of The Flies recently and would like to see how you guys view this book! It could be anything (eg: Motifs, Themes, Characters, Feelings, Emotions, etc, etc)! I actually do enjoy the book a lot not only for its simplicity but William Golding's ability to convey deep implications of darkness in one's heart using just such simplistic words. This things i love about the book: -Language: Simple, yet profound and seeped with plenty of implications. -Theme: Savagery, Anarchy, Dystopia - Characters: Many say that Ralph and Jack are the more important characters but
  6. haha thanks for the motivation! I'm lucky to have English as an SL subject. Just few more questions. Do you think 'Dystopia' is a good theme to research on? What are other good alternative themes to look into? Also, do you think its advisable to build the entire IOP on a certain theme? LASTLY , do you think a presentation on themes is better, or one on characters is better?
  7. Hey thanks for your advice. Siddartha is actually in my book list too, under WL. I understand where you're coming from and what you're trying to say. The topic about the transition of the characters from civilized people to violent and possession of savagery in LOTF might be a very common topic in my class as LOTF is actually the easier book. Will that affect my grades? Once again, thank you! You are most welcome=) Yea i read LOTF when i was in form 4..so 2 years ago, before IB. Im surprised i remember that much. lol. It won't affect your grades at all if all your class does LOTF, but if yo
  8. Thank you for the link to the thread as well as the advice! I understand that you cannot give me an exact question to research on, but just a question here. Will i be graded poorly if my topic/book is very common within my class? i'm really scared it won't turn out well because i'm REALLY not good in literature

  10. So, i've been given 3 books (Metamorphosis, Lord of The Flies, and Heart of Darkness) to do my IOP. I'm completely clueless on what topic/topic question i should decide on. However, i've decided to go with the conventional PPT presentation, with a help of my friend to pop a few questions in between to make it less formal. What do you guys think? Should i go into the thematic areas such as 'Savagery' and 'Violence' (these are strong themes in the book) OR should i go into the research of individual characters? I'm really lost and moreover, i haven't done lit in my life. HELP PLEASE!
  11. It was a cold winters night when I brought my brother to a shed in Central, Hong Kong. I was drunk and had a GIANT bruise on my back because of a
  12. Hey guys, thanks so much for replying so fast! Thoughts of getting scammed started to arise. i'll wait till tomorrow, hopefully the status will be changed
