“We read to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel… is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.”
― Ursula K. Le Guin
Your next team project (teams noted below) asks you to generate a Visual Notes Mural based on the resources provided in the Listly (also noted below).
What is a Visual Notes Mural?
Your mural is meant to provide guidance for a DP student answering the following Paper 2 exam question:
“We read to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel… is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.” In light of that idea, how does Brecht’s play “Mother Courage,” align itself with that attitude about the purpose of Literature?
Your notes should pull from any THREE of the Listly resources. When your group presents your mural, you will have time to explain how the resources are represented.
And now for the resources:
Criterion A – Knowledge and understanding – 5 marks
The essay demonstrates an understanding of the works and knowledge of the contexts in which they were written. The student shows how context affects interpretations of the texts.
*In this case, we explore your knowledge and understanding of the LISTLY resources
Criterion B – Response to the question – 5 marks
A Paper 2 essay should focus on the question chosen. The implications of the exam question need to be explored in depth, and the student’s response must be relevant to it.
Criterion D – Organization and development – 5 marks
The essay must develop an answer to the question coherently and effectively. Topic sentences should guide the ideas of paragraphs. Illustrations should be integrated well and explanations should shed light on the subject matter.
*In this case, we will look at the organization and development of your mural
Criterion E – Language – 5 marks
The language of the Paper 2 exam should be effective and accurate. The choice of vocabulary and use of grammar should be consistent and appropriate.
*This will apply only to the oral presentation which accompanies your mural (each group will have 5-10 minutes to present)
