Structure/point needed to score high in English Lang & Lit?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, its been two month since took IB DP. I've been doing good in all my classes except english. I am taking English A Lang&Lit SL and I've been doing horrible, we've did a paper 1 and a mini-IO where I got 4 and a 3 overall. Can someone tell the me overall purpose/points i'm suppose to make? The structure/points i've been using is.

 

Intro:

Title of work and by whom

What its about or what the extract about

Connect to question or global issue

Give answear and list points

 

Body 1 and 2:

Connect to thesis and point

Evidence

Analysis the literacy device and author intend impact on the audience

Overall meaning of the passage and how it connect to thesis

 

Conclusion:

Relate back to thesis and rename all points and their impacts on reader

Overall importance and take away

 

Am I suppose to analyse it literally or can I make it abstract like I was analysing a piece of art?

I've already done my english l/l sl  io last year and i got a 4 but then i did better in the final, so don't stress too much over your mark, teachers at schools tend to mark harshly too so the examiner would probably give you a higher mark anyways. for the analysis it would be better if you analyse it literally, even though you should already have at least a brief analysis of the texts since that is the teachers job. the most important thing though is the combination of texts you have, the 2 texts have to share the same global issue. time is very important too so make sure you speak about both the literary and non literary texts equally, 1.5 to 2 minutes is enough for the introduction + i'm not sure if you already have one but you should prepare a script of what you're going to say and perhaps memorize it since you can't bring it to the actual thing, this really helped me because i usually feel too anxious and forget what i was supposed to say, but make sure you don't make it too obvious that you've memorized it from a script.

- and this is an extract the IB uploaded on their site it scored very well too, the mark and explanation for it are attached below ( the 'lit_IA_comm_A_n' file) 

the rest of the files attached would be helpful as well especially the rubric, if you follow exactly would they say you would be fine.

i hope i helped even a little and good luck with your exams i'm sure you'll do great!!
