Grade Eleven student, Nereen Sbeitan, produced these wonderful pieces of artwork. The first is a mosaic-style piece that features several pictures of Marilyn Monroe with a painting of the actress on the left side of the piece. The second is a very calming piece that features several shades of the color blue. The third is a black-and-white surrealist piece at the forefront of which is a man whose piercing gaze adds to a perceived closeness of the piece that greatly contributes to its effectiveness. This is the sort of work that the Panorama loves to host. He can…

Hala Taher in ninth grade produced this wonderful piece of black-and-white surrealist art work. The shading in this piece quite considerably increases the appeal of the overall image. It can also serve to create a sort of 3D effect. Just look at that cactus on the right. Well done Hala!

Dear IAA Students,Grade 12 will certainly go down as a year to remember for me, especially because of how quickly it finished! It seems like just yesterday that I walked into Grade 11, and now, I am studying for my externals and readying my goodbyes to friends that I grew up with. But as exciting as it may seem, great responsibilities and decisions that will affect your future await. Although everyone believes that doing the externals is the most important part, one must not forget the endless tasks to complete before readying oneself for these exams. The internal assessments, TOK,…

Grade 10 Student, Solenne Tadros, for her personal project, evaluated plans for nuclear energy in Jordan. She came to the conclusion that such developments would, in Jordan, be unadvasible for at least the time being and made the video above to summarize and convey that one conviction. We applaud the thought she put into her project and the effort that went into the project’s video.

This is the second Grade Ten remake of a Christmas Carol on the Panorama. While it most certainly is hard to pick a favorite, we at the Panorama feel that this one was particularly well edited and that the musical accompaniments aid in the communication of the plot to viewers. Enjoy!

Sireen Masadeh- Grade 10 Personal Project Intertwining the passion for recycling with that for fashion. For her Personal Project, Sireen Masadeh designed a number of, dare we say, beautiful dresses using materials that would, otherwise, have been disposed of. Her project showcases the level of creativity and capacity for innovation that IAA students are taught to have. The Panorama applauds her and students like her for going to extra mile to create works that capture the general creative ability of IAA students while tackling important global issues such as inefficient material use. Some of Sireen’s dresses are featured below. (Note:…

William Shakespeare This passage fromthe last scene of Act 1 is significant in the way that it outlines the majordetails for Iago’s plot, a deadly plot that brings about the death of severalcharacters including Desdemona and Othello. It also portrays an image of Iago’s character.

Although the character mostly attributed with jealousyin this…

Admiral David Farragut He attempted to grip tightly on the handle of his blade but an excruciating pain prevented him to do, so he ended up holding it between his fingers. The soles of fur covered boots began to crackle as he stepped on the hot warm gravel. He was walking through a twisted nether, an aura engulfed in a thin purple haze. His thick leather and steel plate armor softly sheathed his numb muscles. He looked up ahead and found a phantasmal specter staring at him with hollow eyes made of black smoke. As he walked closer a hidden…
