1 IB Oral (IOC) Outline Format

2 IB Orals  PART I: Initial Reading (6-7 min) Color mark and annotate as you go  PART II: Idea Generation (7-8 min) Read the two guiding questions and consider what they are asking; they are meant to stimulate your thinking. Do NOT make a direct reference to them! Brainstorm a list of important points in the passage. Work from strategy to meaning or vice-versa After 8-10 possible strategies, go back and name the first column

3 IB Orals  PART III: Organizing the Commentary (5- 7 min) Identify a thesis for your commentary by choosing the most interesting/useful strategies to make your point. Make an outline of points –  thesis at the top for your opening statement  followed by the points in the order you wish to make them.

4  Two households, both alike in dignity,  In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,  From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,  Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.  From forth the fatal loins of these two foes  A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;  Whose misadventured piteous overthrows  Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.  The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,  And the continuance of their parents' rage,  Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,  Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;  The which if you with patient ears attend,  What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. GUIDING QUESTIONS:  What does the sonnet form add to our understanding of this passage?  What does the narrative perspective suggest about the importance of this passage?

6 EXAMPLE: Brainstorming List  STRATEGY: Use of couplet at end of sonnet (lines 13-14) FUNCTION: shows it is about theater/actors  STRATEGY: Sonnet form FUNCTION: Shakespeare and change with couplet =  STRATEGY: References to fate FUNCTION: foreshadows role of fate in play  STRATEGY: juxtaposed images FUNCTION: Foreshadows balance imagery  STRATEGY: Death imagery FUNCTION: foreshadows death imagery in play

7 EXAMPLE: Outline  Opening Statement: Most interesting question is the problem of why this prologue is included at all—story well-known. Sonnet Form—Rhythm break at “bury” l. 8 Overtone of money—L1, L12 Foreshadowing of balance that structures play l.3 Importance of death imagery l.5-11 Importance of “fate” l. 6 Narrative Perspective Role of couplet—“our” refers to troupe; “here” refers to actual prologue. Why do we need it?  Conclusion: Couplet performs function of instructing audience that although they have encountered, in the prologue, the traditional interpretation of fate-crossed lovers, the rest of the play is going to challenge that traditional interpretation and suggest that poor decision-making had more to do with the outcome than fate did.
