  1. Hey guys, I have vacation going on, so i thought i would use this time to think of an EE topic in advance. So what I was planning to do is comparing Frankenstein - Mary shelley and The Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde - Robert Louis Stevenson. I would like to know if this is a good topic to go ahead with. I've emailed my english teacher about this but he is not replying at all. I would really like it if anyone could give me their opinion or advice on this. Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi! So for my English Extended Essay I intend to do a feminist analytical comparison of two books, or how they portray against typical conceptions of women at the time. But I'm having trouble choosing which exact books to choose :(( Do y'all have any feminist fiction book recommendations? Any help would be really appreciated!! :))

  6. I have chosen English Lit and Language A as my EE subject. I have come up with some topic ideas, but I want to see what you people think of these topics and RQ's: The effect that an epistolary format has on character development in Jerusalem's Lot and Frankenstein. Jerusalem's lot is a short story written by Stephen King. How does Agatha Christie’s use of literary techniques (red herrings, plot twists etc.) in And Then There Were None and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd mislead the readers about the plot? How does the usage of an unreliable narrato
  7. Hello! I'm planning on doing my extended essay on English Literature but I don't have any books or question yet. I am interested in American literature in the 20th century and I'm hoping I can talk about something from then. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  8. Hello, there! This is my first post here ever. So, I'm going to hand in the subjects option form two days later. But I have trouble making choices on English. I want to know the differences between English A SL and English B HL apart from the difficulties and quantity of assignments. Do both English A HL and SL focus on literature itself, whereas B focuses on the application of the language and cultures? Thanks!
  9. Hey! I have decided to do my extended essay in English Lang & Lit, i have decided my topic and the novel i'm gonna analyse. I was thinking of the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, and i wanted to explore the topic of obsession and the way obsession is portrayed by the characters in the novel or the way the author incorporated obsession in the novel and its accuracy, considering the time this book was written. what do you guys think about the topic and the choice of this novel ? All help is useful ! 🙂
  10. Hi all. I'm planning on doing an EE in English, category 1. What are your thoughts on my RQ- at the moment my biggest concern is that it might be too descriptive rather than analytical, in terms of language. How does delusion influence characters' motives and perceptions of reality in Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things? My supervisor actually advised me to do something along the lines of the question above. However, I originally planned on doing the question below, but she advised that there may not be enough to talk about. What are your thoughts? Is the question above acceptabl
  11. Hello all, I am a DP2 student from New Zealand undertaking English A Literature. In second half of last year, all DP1 English students uploaded their final Work in Translation (WIT) essay to the school and received a predicted grade. From what I heard, students are to upload the final copy of their WIT to the IBIS by themselves. I have heard anecdotes of students being able to edit their WIT after the due date set by the school (it's just that teachers will no longer provide feedback). However, our IB coordinator says that our teachers will check to make sure that we upload a copy that's iden
  12. Hi, I am in year 10 this year and I have recently got my grade back for my first english reflection which I had recieved a 'C' in and the teacher had to talk to me about it. My exam is on writing a reflection but in the voice of another character in the book that I studied which is 'The Professor and the Housekeeper. I did a practice paragraph but the comments I got was that it was more of a recount not a reflection, and I'm stressed out now because I want to do good in this exam to bring up my mark. If anyone has any good tips for my reflection or just mentally please add a comment.
  13. So, my EE's due tomorrow 11:59 p.m. I know it's pretty late but I have to do it. And I haven't done any of it yet. Luckily, I've got a semi-plan outline, which looks like a table of contents, but I just can't get started. Each time I think of starting, I fear that somewhere along I realize how crappy my essay is and might have to start from scratch. My essay's going to be a comparison essay between Siddhartha and lord of the Flies. I'm going to be exploring the theme 'ambition' in the essay. Do you guys think this is a good idea? or is there any other theme that might be easier to explore? a
  14. HI IM WRITING AN ENGLISH GROUP 3 EXTENDED ESSAY AND MY BROAD TOPIC IS GRETA THUNBERG SPEECHES. I have to come up with a list of 4-6 specificic subtopics to explore in my EE by tomorrow. Have any of yall written an EE about speeches?? Maybe I could compare her to someone else, but I don't know who? Would simply analyzing a few different famous speeches (like her ted talk, her un speech, EU speech, etc.) be enough??? PLEASE RESPOND IM VERY STRESSED RN
  15. For the Hl english Lit paper 2, we have to read 4 books and know them thoroughly and this can be quite difficult considering all the things we need to remember. So, I was thinking if everyone could lists the books they are doing the people with the same books could help each other out by exchanging quotes, analysis and other stuff regarding the books. We could really help each other out here and make studying for english a lot easier. My books: The road Oryx and Crake Jungle books Beloved
  16. I have an essay due soon. I basically have to write about Tom from the Great Gatsby. What do i need to know about him? Give me as much information as possible, and your thoughts on him. What is his role? Purpose? Maybe a bit of context (his past)? All help is appreciated.
  17. Guys, I am currently doing my written task and I am asked to write about the linguistic style of a poet. I have done it, but now I need to do my 200 words rationale. Can you guys explain to me about what I should write for the rationale? Like, why did I choose that poet and what else should I write?
  18. Hey everyone I'm just here to release my thoughts and worries cause they're just building up and get some advice (hopefully from people who have already finished IB or people who are going through the same thing) I just gave in my extended essay on literature and I'm kind of freaking out. I wrote it over the summer to save me time from worrying about it last minute and finished it by being told that we had to cite anything we PARAPHRASED. I did not know this. Therefore, I went back, changed and cited all the things that I KNOW weren't my ideas but I guess I was kinda lucky since mos
  19. Hello, I just finished the paper 1 for English A HL (text comparison). I wrote about question 2(text C and D) but only after submitting did I realize that I referred to the two texts in question 2 as text A and B throughout my whole analysis. I’m extremely scared now that the examiners will mark my paper based on it being text A and B or penalize me in any way. However, I did write question 2 at the box on the left hand column of the response paper. If there’s any English A HL examiners or someone who have made this mistake or anyone who knows about this, PLEASE tell me if the examiners will m
  20. Right. So. I have the essay. It's around 3500 words at the moment which is pretty great because I have space for this, but my supervisor told me to completely re-do my introduction. I get why and I have a plan on what to include in it, I just can't come up with a way to start the introduction. So I'm literally stuck on the first sentence of my EE. I'd like to ask if anyone could share the first one or two sentences of their EEs, it'd help lots for some inspiration! If it's of any interest, my research question is "How does the sociocultural context affect the development of mental il
  21. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has good structures of writing paragraphs for both HL English papers?
  22. Hey! I was wondering if anyone has the Prescribed List of Authors (PLA) and the Prescribed List of Translations (PLT) for English A: Language and Literature? Our English teacher left the school very suddenly, and we currently have no English teacher to turn to for any resources as of yet (I'm in DP 2)! I was hoping to get a head start on figuring out the subject myself, and it would be very helpful if I could get these two documents. I've been trying to find them online, but I can't seem to locate the files. Also, if you have any tips to learning English A: Lang & L
