How can an IB Literature and Performance tutor help you?
The International Baccalaureate program's literature courses require students to develop strong skills in critical thinking and literary analysis; however, this does not mean that a course cannot focus on the genres of literature that most closely align with the student%u2019s personal interests. The IB Literature and Performance course presents students who possess a passion for theater and performance, with a special opportunity to take a literature class devoted to their interests. The course and its exam assess the same critical literacy skills that are the foundation of any IB literature class, but stress reading plays and understanding how the unique nature of performance and dramatic interpretation can impact a text's meaning.
As a result, dramatic texts, poems, and performance pieces are favored over novels and nonfiction literary works in this course. Despite its specific focus, the course%u2019s requirements are no less rigorous than other IB literature courses. While only offered at the IBs standard level, the Literature and Performance course still requires students to read a variety of texts and think critically about how those texts are structured. Additionally, the IB Literature and Performance exam requires students to perform both oral and written literary analyses. While the course can act as a great springboard for the study of drama in college, it also represents a significant challenge. Even for students with histories of success in literature and drama courses, succeeding both in an IB Literature and Performance course and on its exam might require a little bit of expert help.
