The Purpose

Your chief goal is to explore the context of the works you are reading. You will work together with your classmates to explore the background of the work.



Delivery of research in a presentation

Class Discussion

Each interactive oral must be at least thirty minutes.

contexts for research
Contexts For Research
  • Relevant elements of the writer’s biography.
  • The historical aspects, political or social, of the work.
  • The geographical backdrop against which the work is set.
  • The sociological or anthropological situation of the characters.
  • Cultural issues and practices having to do with economics, gender, class or race.
  • You might assign, among yourselves, particular aspects for a brief presentation to the class, then open up to a whole-class question and answer discussion period.
  • You may choose to present views within your research and have different members of a panel present various views of those ideas.
  • You may offer some short presentations and then involve the whole group in some activities such as role playing, forum theatre and written reactions.
stage 3 reflective statement
Stage 3: Reflective Statement
  • After each interactive oral, you will write a response to the following question:

How was your understanding of the cultural and contextual considerations of the work developed through the interactive oral?

Your reflection will be 300-400 words. I will collect them and keep them in a file. One of them will be submitted to the IB office.

stage 4 supervised in class writing
Stage 4: Supervised In-Class Writing
  • During a 40-50 minute in class session, you will write a short essay responding to a prompt. You will have three or four prompts to chose from, but you will respond to only one.
stage 5 essay
Stage 5: Essay
  • You will chose one of the three in-class timed essays as a topic for a more in-depth essay of 1200-1500 words.
  • I will look at the first draft and offer feedback and criticism.

This essay, along with your reflective statement and in-class essay will be sent to the IB committee for scoring.
