One of the IB's approaches to learning is critical thinking. What does critical thinking look like? Just listen to this example. The student, in brief, makes connections between characters and their shared experiences. The student makes connections between Banksy's works of art and their common themes. And the candidate connects these themes, characters and stylistic features to a global issue. Want to score well on the IO. Make connections!
