  1. What class is this IA for? And how will you measure correlation?
  2. I need to fit both creativity and action into one CAS activity and can't think of anything that fits them both appropriately. Any thoughts?
  3. I think it looks great! You seem to have it all lined up correctly. Just make sure you have a way to accurately measure all of your variables soon after the tests.

    Help me!

    I've been thinking of changing my EE topic from "To what extent did the U.S. occupation of Iraq affect the treatment of women in Iraq?" to something more along the lines of "To what extent did the process of deBa'athification implemented by the United States after it's invasion of Iraq affect the reconstruction process, and were the effects positive or negative regarding the rights of women?". My EE category is human rights with a focus on women's rights. I feel that my previous topic was too broad, but now I'm worried it will be too narrow. Even though there is definitely a lot to cover, it seems like less of a paper about women's rights and more about history. Is this a good idea? Any input greatly appreciated I'm at a loss
  5. An IA is easier when you have definite numbers to run tests with. The NBA one is good. How about the relationship between skull circumference and gpa? Do smarter people actually have bigger brains/heads? Just walk around your school measuring people's heads and have them write down their gpa on a slip of paper. That way they don't feel intimidated letting you know their gpa if their grades are bad. I did something similar (skull circumference versus height) so I could talk about the limits to which this is true (like how a 7ft tall person wouldn't have a significantly larger head or they'd look like a bobblehead ) and asking to measure someone's head is a great conversation starter.
  6. My English HL teacher is the best, and so was my Spanish SL, so I really loved those classes.

  8. There really isn't a need to get extra resources. Your school textbooks should suffice. If you need help, there are lots of helpful videos and articles on the internet, and they can be just as informative as a course guide. But, to each their own
  9. Three teens shot and killed an Australian man visiting in Oklahoma City because they got "bored". What. WHAT. There are so many things wrong with this sentence it just boggles the mind, and I had to ask for opinions. Where do I even start? Here's the article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/oklahoma-police-say-australian-baseball-player-killed-on-street-because-teenagers-were-bored/2013/08/19/cc4f5dd4-092d-11e3-89fe-abb4a5067014_story.html I'm curious to know.. Obviously this isn't a reasonable thing to do, but why do you think they feel justified in taking a stranger's life like that?Should they be tried as adults or juveniles?Your reactions in generalDISCUSS
  10. Okay, so my EE is on Human Rights and my topic is To what extent did the U.S. occupation of Iraq affect the treatment of women in Iraq? and I have 5 book sources along with a documentary and a barrage of articles from the web. Here's my book list.. Women and Gender in Islam: Historical Roots of a Modern Debate by Leila Ahmed What Kind of Liberation?: Women and the Occupation of Iraq by Nadje Al-Ali Mayada, Daughter of Iraq: One Woman's Survival Under Saddam Hussein by Jean Sasson ...and some others that I'm not going to bother listing right now. Anyways, these are the big three. My question here is: How many times should I cite each source? Is this too many sources and will I be spread too thin, or should I cite one book many times if need be? How many citations should I have, on average? I know its going to be a lot but will it be a LOT? I need room for analysis... Also, is my topic alright, or is it too general and unfit for a discussion over Human Rights? (Sorry this post is a bit all over the place. I'm a bit lost here .)
  11. It all depends on your advisor, but I would think that it should count! Some practices can be really physically demanding, and you have no problem getting an supervisor to sign. If for some reason that doesn't count, it could count for creativity..

  13. You're last one seems the most specific, so you could go into a lot of depth with it. I really like the second one though. It's really vague (which is bad), but if you answered it correctly it could be a great presentation. I would still pick the last one, though, just to be safe. With that one you could define "murderer" and "mental illness" and then build off of that with ethics, social science, and natural science.
  14. It seems a bit like a history subject but a new spin on the IA may be a good thing. It's definitely an unique idea. If you have as many data as you say you have and do all of the tests you listed it should turn out alright, but it depends on the grader.
  15. I really loved The Master and Margarita by Bulgakov and Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Magical realism is my favorite
