current mood: blah

Hi ok so:

My IOP is on December 16th, so I wanted to have plenty of time to prepare for my presentation. I'm doing my IOP on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, focusing on the themes of monstrosity and responsibility. I don't want to do a regular powerpoint so do any of you have some good, creative ways to present this information?

Thank you! :)

Hi, I my IOP is due in 4 days, and I can easily do something simple like a powerpoint presentation but I have no idea what to do it on. The book is House of The Spirits and if anyone could give me an idea, that would be great.

Hello, I have my IOP presentation on January 9th and I was wondering if anybody could help me to refine or suggest better ways to present it. I am doing a monologue from the character Daisy from The Great Gatsby, and in the monologue i would reveal my feelings toward the Gatsby. Then after the monologue explain how Fitzgerald used his writing to show these feelings. Please help. Also other suggestions on what to do on this book is welcomed.

English IOP

So my english IOP is this wednesday... and I still can't find a topic that I can work with... I've been mostly procrastinating for the last 4 weeks. We're looking at the books 'Stolen' by Jane Harrison, 'The Stolen and Their Stories' edited by Carmel Bird, 'Deadly Unna' by Phillip Gwynne and 'Sardines and Oranges. I'm Leaning towards 'Stolen' since I don't have access to the other books. I don't think I really understand what we're really meant to be doing with the IOP...but I can't really ask my teacher now as my presentation is in 3 days and I haven't even picked a topic... Can someone PLEASE help me...?

Advice for IB
by CoraBlorthog (corablorthog)
at January 20th, 2013 (05:10 am)

I was wondering if anyone can share some good, effective advice relating to IB, especially concerning the extended essay (how did you decide on your subject/topic, what can someone do to make the process easier) and other big essay assignments.

Also, if you're done with the program, how was your experience? Is there something you wished was different?

If you're currently in the program, what are your thoughts so far?

Hi! So, I have my IOP presentation coming up as well and I was wondering how my topic was. My teacher really hasn't given too much input back and so I am very confused. I will write an alternate ending for Wide Sargasso Sea through Rochester's narration and will discuss the impact of a varying narration has on the novel and reader. Thank you!

by kimsonderborg (kimsonderborg)
at March 26th, 2012 (09:24 pm)


If you are studying history and have exams this Spring, I have created a series of revision-podcasts which are available to download.

There are 22 podcasts on various topics such as the rise into power of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Castro, World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the Spanish Civil War and the Vietnam War. Some episodes explore how technology and strategy have changed modern warfare, or give suggestions for historiography.

The podcasts are FREE to download, and there is no signup etc.

This is the link:

Good luck with the exam!

One of the topic for my paper presentation is 'Solid state electronics' . What should I do in my presentation? Should it contain the basic of solid state electronics, history, mechanism,draw backs and all? Or the recent development in this field? Or should I consider a certain application of solid state electronics and describe it?

IOP Presentation
by rakoa (rakoa)
at November 28th, 2011 (05:10 pm)

Hello everyone, I am an IB Student in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I created this lovely livejournal account for the purpose of writing this message, though from the looks of this community I suspect I will be using it much more. But with regards to IOP... my English teacher is new to IB. This is his first year teaching IB English and he hates it. Anyway, he gave us a week to throw together our shit for this presentation with very little warning before hand, because he himself probably just found out. From talking to my Year 2 friends, they had nearly 2 months with the rubric in hand and concise instructions to prepare. One week for me. Maybe thats normal, but regardless, I feel up the river without a paddle. I am not even clear on what the IOP is, or what this guy is looking for, probably because he doesn't even know!

He basically gave us three books (Life of Pi, Heart of Darkness, and Fahrenheit 451) and said "Go now, little children, and come up with a presentation. It must relate to one of these books. It must be no longer than 10 minutes. Good luck." I feel really, well, screwed. If someone can help with a topic that fits IOP guidelines (whatever those are) I would be really happy, but anything relating to his IOP in general would be immensely appreciated.

Thank you for reading my large, large, long talk (yes, I know I said large twice). Good luck to you, fellow IB students! As you were. :P

IOP presentation help with selecting a topic
by kvigo (kvigo)
at November 20th, 2011 (09:06 pm)

Hello world,
my iop is coming back and I have to choose a topic... the three books i have to work with are Blindness, Prisoner of Tehran, and Hamlet (Shakespeare). these are the possible topics I came up with to present, which do you think would be the strongest presentation topics and how can I present them?
Thank you!
Do you think that Blindness is an overt critique of modern society? Why or why not?

Does the experience in the quarantine provide any critique of forms of government?

What is the importance of the fact that the writer who is living in the first blind man's house keeps writing, even after he is sure no one can read what he has done?

Why do you think that the doctor's wife is the protagonist as opposed to some other member in the group?
COMPARE AND CONTRAST idea of FEAR in BLINDNESS and PRISONER OF TEHRAN (theme: nothing to fear but fear itself, fear as it holds people captive)
()how the point of view and writers style such as embedded quotes are portrayed in the movie and their effect to the book)
COMPARE AND CONTRAST the display of ‘fluids’ (unbalance of powers) such as reason, passion, and desires and how they act as a TRAGIC FLAW in both HAMLET and PRISONER OF TEHRAN.

Help with hamlet soliloquy please!
by kvigo (kvigo)

Hello everyone!
For a grade 11 english assignment, we have to make up our own hamlet soliloquy of 15 lines. Mine is much longer, but I will ask the teacher if this is acceptable and if not, I will shorten it. For now, this is just my rough draft, it's not in iambic pantameter, it is 10 syllables per line however. It is right after Horatio and Marcellus leave in Scene 5 Act 1 and is followed by Ophelia going to her father to tell him of what Hamlet did in Aact 1 Scene 2. This selection was assigned and is supposed to be called the break up soliloquy. We rare supposed to use 5 stylistic elements; I have chosen to use a metaphor, allusion, simile, rhyming cuplet and paradox. Please, read my soliloquy and offer any advice, corrections, or ways to make it better bye improving the Shakespearean language, stylistic elements, iambic pantameter, etc ! Greatly appreciated :)
How am I to possibly avenge my
father’s death? Claudius, that smiling
villain, must surely suspect.
To put an antic disposition on,
a person of such madness couldn’t be
at fault for such poor actions, or could he?
My most best method is through the dear Lord
Polonius, like the King’s carrier bird
of vital knowledge. But how to do this?
Ha! Through the most beautified Ophelia!
Such a weak soul, she will with rapid speed
report to thee father. Such womanly
obedience to the man in thou life
appears mostly in the incestuous
marriage of two beings, two satyr-like
beings. As such, I can poison thy ears
of the celestial Ophelia
with distorting words of lunacy and
looks of pity. This act will not be hard
to perform as my feelings of deep and
meaningful care towards Ophelia
are originated from truth, yet I
know I must distance myself for her safety.
Thereby, providing her a way to bid
farewell to me. ‘Tis what shall be done, I
will appear, with my doublet all unbrac’d
to Ophelia, thus getting word to the
adulterate beast I call King of my lunacy.

Hey everyone,

I'm having some trouble with my research work book! It's been three months now and I only have 8 pages finished and no project...and the problem seems to be spreading to my other subjects. I'll sit down with all of my materials and rid myself of all distractions and I still can't get any work done. Any ideas why this is happening? Is this happening to anyone else, and if so, what did you do about it? I don't think it's necessarily procrastination, and my research topic isn't exactly boring. 

Also, any general tips for the RWBs? (Creativity/ideas?) 
If you have anything to say, please say it! 
Thanks ^_^

native language: English
which year are you in: 12th grade
my higher levels:English, Bio, History
standard levels: French (taken both 11 and 12 in gr 11), Math, Chem
favourite subjects: Bio, History

Hey guys,

I'm new here and need some help :S I've been scouring the internet for Math SL IA examples and I've come up with diddly-squat. The only ones I can find are on IBSurvival forums and, being a poor starving student, have decided not to pay $10. This year's IA Type 1 is on infinite summation and I have no idea how to format it at all, not even a general layout.
If you have any advice for me please comment.

Hi everyone,
so my teacher introduced the IOP assignment today and I wanted to start it. We get to pick between the novel blindness by jose saramago, the memoir Prisoner of Tehran by Marina Nemat and Hamlet.
Not sure if anyone has read either of the first 2 titles mentioned but could you give me some suggestions, even just something to get me started because I'm not sure how to go about beginning this project.
I was thinking of doing a comparison between Blindness and the movie based on the book, or a comparison of the theme of fear: (nothing to fear but fear itself, fear taking people captive) between blindness and prisoner of tehran. Would these be good topics to start off with?
If you could give me some advice for a good presentation or help with picking a topic that would be great!
thanks ! :)

Frist of all, hello :) I'm andi and new here!

Second, I have a concern related to the Social & Cultural Anthropology requirements. Does anybody know if I have to translate each single interview I've made?

I'm from a spanish-speaking country but my school's A1 is english. If anyone knows i'd appreciate an answer quickly because I have to start inputing data and that takes forever and I haven't got too much time for my deadline.
