Unpacking the IOC cRiteria and other great tips!
So what do I need to do to gain the maximum marks
in each criteria?
  • Understanding what you are being marked on is
    vital to your success in IOC
  • 30 marks
  • 5 marks for understanding
  • 10 marks Interpretation and Personal Response
  • 10 marks Presentation
  • 5 marks Use of Language

Criteria AKnowledge and Understanding (5 marks)
  • How well do you know and understand the content
    of the extract?
  • How well can you SITUATE THE EXTRACT within the
    context of the larger work from which it has been
    taken OR the BODY OF WORKS to which it belongs,
    where relevant?
  • In order to get maximum marks here you need to be
    able to discuss CONTEXT- and this should occur in
    your intro

So What is Context?
  • Context in Dawe
  • Who Bruce Dawe is -relevant social/historical
    /political context of poems subject
  • Context in Macbeth
  • Significant elements of the play-Importance of
    scene within the play. Action immediately before
    and after this extract.
  • Context in MLK
  • MLK s significance and the relevant
    social/historical/political context (this is
    crucial for MLK extracts)
  • Context in Poe
  • Who Poe is- Gothic literary elements/ short
    story elements

When should I bring in links to other
  • The easiest way to remember to link your extract
    is to bring this into your intro, when you
    discuss context
  • For example- when discussing the context of
    Homecoming (The Vietnam war and Dawes views on
    conscription and the futility of war) you would
    discuss how he explores these themes in Weapons
  • There are also other times when you could make
    connections with other poems- think about the
    form (dramatic monologue) of Weapons Training
    and how Victorian Hangman has a similar form
    (dramatic monologue) and structure (one verse-
    very little punctuation etc).

Criteria BInterpretation and Personal Response
(10 marks)
  • Ask Yourself
  • How valid is your interpretation?
  • How well have you IDENTIFIED and ANALYSED EFFECTS
    OF LITERARY FEATURES, such as diction, imagery,
    tone, structure, style, technique?
  • How much does your response show critical
    thinking and originality?
  • How precise and relevant are your references to
    the extract/work?

So How do I show Personal Response?
  • By tying techniques with the meaning of the
    extract and by discussing the effect on the
  • By showing that you have engaged with the text-
    you can use the first person in IOC
  • In my opinion- something that I found
    interesting about this scene- I think- I believe
  • By concluding with something that provides food
    for thought

Criteria CPresentation
  • How structured is your response?
  • How effective and convincing is your
  • How appropriately do you integrate supporting
    references to the extract?
  • Timing your IOC- your IOC will go for no more
    than 8 mins (hand signals will tell you when you
    are at 6,7 and 8 mins. You will lose marks if
    you have not concluded
  • We will be questioned and this will cease at 10

So what can I do to make sure that my IOC is
  • Spend at least 10 mins of your 20 min prep
    planning your response
  • Decide on what approach you will take thematic,
    linear, technique etc- and then stick to that
  • Spend your holidays preparing flash cards- that
    way you will have a subject and approach for
    every extract
  • Spend your holidays working in a critical friends
    network- share the work load of preparing flash
  • Flash Cards and Critical friends

What to include on your flash cards
  • Intro- context
  • Links to other texts
  • Overview of extract
  • Subject for IOC- the thing that you will be
    focusing on
  • Your approach- linear/ techniques etc
  • Important techniques
