  1. Hey all, I take English A SL and need to do my IOP after Christmas break. I have decided to do it on The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. My Thesis is: "The story creates an atmosphere that conveys a dark theme of insecurity and instability". I was to talk about punctuation, repetition,diction , the narrator , and the vulture eye (symbolism). My teacher says the thesis is too vague, that it needs to be falsifiable. What does this mean? And what can I come up with as an alternative. I want to be done quickly so that I can rehearse and perfect my presentation. All help is appr
  2. Mine was Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys interview with main character ( Antoinette Cosway)
  3. I'm talking about the manipulation of Iago in my IOP but I can't think of any way of including the class or coming up with an activity. Any ideas?
  4. For my IOP I choose the book MacBeth. I would love to do a creative/Role Play IOP, but I am having trouble coming up with a topic that is compatible with the creative interactive format. Does anyone have any good ideas or tips to find a good topic?
  5. I have my IOP coming up in the next couple of weeks and I'm still pretty clueless as to what I want to do. I've been thinking about making a painting that represents Holden's character and just showing a sped up video to my class and stopping it at certain points to talk about what's in it and throw in some quotes from the book, but I don't know if it's a good idea and will end up being a good presentation.
  6. For my IOP (Individual Oral Presentation) in English, I am doing Oedipus Rex. My topic is irony, specifically dramatic/situational and literary irony. There are lots of examples of them in the text. 1) What would be a good thesis statement? What should I focus on? 2) How do these types of irony affect the reader? 3) What is the purpose of having them in the text? Any greater implications/ extensions? 4) Is this a good topic even?:) Thank you so much!
  7. Hey y'all I have my IOP due in around 2 weeks and I've barely done anything because I keep confusing myself about what to do. We have looked at a lot of texts in class surrounding themes of class distinction (these include the Dolls House by Katherine Mansfield, The Dead by James Joyce and Opportunity by Charlotte Grimshaw). I want to do my IOP surrounding the characters and their perceptions of class distinction and how it affects their behaviour, but I'm worried there's not enough depth in that. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what kind of ideas I could explore in t
  8. I need help deciding on a topic for my English IOP. I've decided on doing a just a slideshow presentation, so it needs to be really good. The only topic I've thought up of is name symbolism, but that's a really popular topic. Any ideas?
  9. Hey guys, I will be doing my IOP this year, and my topic will be Macbeth and Hamlet ( Macbeth being the book we are reading this year). In terms of comparing the plays, I most likely will speak to Supernatural elements and what makes them both Greek tragedies. There is so much I can compare between these two plays though! However, I'm rather stuck on making it into a creative solo format. When we've done something creative presentation in class, it was with 2+ people. Just wanted to ask any of your previous creative formats for Solo IOPS (just for inspiration /an idea!), or
  10. Hi So I'm currently in the middle of drafting my final IOP for english HL for a poem by Bruce Dawe "Doctor to Patient" I've discussed with my teacher and we've bounced ideas around; so far, I'm planning to present my IOP as the character of Bruce Dawe's doctor, and present my response poem to my "prop" (classmate) before kicking them out, (trying to showcase the "laziness of the unemployed" that Dawe blames in his poem) then to begin the analytical part of the iop I would conduct it over a fake phone call, where the person on the other line is asking why I would write somethi
  11. I have completed my IOP a few days back and I have worked incredibly hard on it. Many of my classmates prior to my presentation highly praised my ideas and unique execution. I love presenting and especially have a passion for English. Unfortunately, I went over time by two minutes and I was wondering how many points that would take off of my score. I aim for a seven on my IOP, and I would like to know if I still have a shot at it.
  12. I have my English IOP coming up, and I'm not sure how to bring a creative aspect to my English final IOP. I'd really appreciate any tips!
  13. Hey everyone! So for my upcomming IOP in 2 weeks, I am planning to do one on Wide Sargasso Sea. So far I managed to form a thesis of "The author Jean Rhys presents the theme of Alienation through exclusion of the characters in the novel based on race, wealth and status, appearance and shared cultural symbols and values." I chose this thesis primarily after going through interrelationships between the characters of the novel. Primarily, these factors in my thesis are brought through: poverty, appearance (creole). Alienation that leads to destructive acts in the novel
  14. Hi guys, I'm in my 1st year of the DP and we're going to be doing our IOP in January - so far we've done 'The Great Gatsby', 'De:TALES' and 'In Praise of Shadows'. Right now, I'm thinking of doing a presentation on how Tanizaki (author of 'In Praise of Shadows') portrayed the Japanese way of life similar to that of the way of life which is recommended in Heidegger's 'Sein und Zeit'*. I was also thinking of doing a presentation on the difference of the perception of beauty in 'The Great Gatsby' and 'In Praise of Shadows'. I'd really appreciate some help! I'm indecisive as hell and my
  15. So im doing an IOP on Cormac MacCarthy's the road and i was gonna work on the theme off Trust and how the Characters of the man and the boy present the difference in their approach. I don't even know where to begin my teacher wants me to re read the book but im lazy and have no motivation please help :'(
  16. My friend and i are doing our IOP and we are finding it hard to make it creative, or how to intrigue the audience we are looking for more unique was rather than jokes, powerpoints/prezis, etc
  17. I'm having my IOP's in German soon. We looked at the Books Jakob der Lügner, Homo Faber and Das Parfüm. We also watched the films. Generally speaking does any of you have any recommendation what to do if we have to analyze and compare two works? What specific aspect would you look at?
  18. I'm not sure if anyone's doing this book but i'm basing my IOP on "The English Teacher" by R.K Narayan focusing on the effect of language in the book or the portrayal of Indian culture and stereotypes in the book. I don't want to g the analytical way because that's what i did the past two times so any one have any ideas for presenting it in a creative way? Thanks
  19. Our english teacher told us that the audience's reaction to our presentation will also be an important part of our grade. So our teacher will deduct points from our gades if he notices people sleeping or looking disinterested. Do you guys know how to make an audience full of teenagers actually look interested during a presentation ?
  20. My IOP is next week and I don't know what to do. I wanted to do drawings showing the dynamic development of Marguerite, but I don't know how to present it. Like how do I open the presentation? and how do I close it? Please help.
  21. I have my IOP coming up for ELA and I am still having some trouble to come up with solid ideas on what to say and how I should present it. I'm doing my IOP on "The Great Gatsby" with the topic "Discuss the potential that Daisy is the antagonist in the novel." I choose to talk about how Daisy’s character is controversial, as one may argue that her presence is detrimental to Gatsby’s life; therefore, Daisy is a catalyst for Gatsby demise. I have a few ideas for the subject, but I wanted to hear about other people's opinions on how she acts as the antagonist within the novel. Thank you
  22. Hi, Criterion B for the IOP evaluates the strategies used to interest the audience. In order to get full marks for this criterion, do I need to create unique/creative strategies (e.g. a skit, an interactive component), or will the usual presentation strategies suffice? (Like audibility, eye contact, gestures). Thanks!
  23. Hello all! For my individual oral presentation for IB Literature, I am planning to give a performance based off of the book The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. I want to do a performative-type IOP, where I will be talking from the point of view of one of the characters named Dave Jensen. The purpose of my IOP will be to explain/perform the development of his relationship with another character in the story and what that means for Jensen himself. I was a bit confused on how to do this at first, but my idea now is this: my IOP will take the form of my character writing several diary entries,
  24. 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?
  25. Hello, I have decided to do a poem for my IOP since it seems like the easiest option, but I really don't know which one I should do. Does anyone have any suggestions for good poems? I would also appreciate suggestions regarding presentation ideas for Wide Sargasso Sea or Zoo Story!
