For Students

This section of the InThinking website - "For Students" - is just that: a section for currently enrolled students in the IB Language A: Language and literature course.  The primary goal of these pages is to support you so that you can navigate the course with confidence. 

As such, you will find that the pages are addressed to you, the students of the course, and the activities and materials in this section of the site are tailored to your needs.  

You might also find that your teacher will send you to this section of the site for revision, for help in explaining an assessment, or for a completely different purpose.  While other sections of the site are dedicated to teachers - and are written to them - this is a space for you.

Finally, welcome to the course.  We hope you have an incredible learning journey over the next two years!
