  1. I feel like you can write a lot to compare and contrast Stalin and Hitler. But my experience with my extended essay is that 4,000 words is not a lot! Not for history! You can't have a topic too big that you will not be able to analyse as much as you want, hence your topic should be detailed, or just do one leader.But you do need to have a lot of sources to be able to write a 4,000 word essay. Your topic is specific enough that you can definitely write a 4,000 word essay, but I don't know how much resources you will be able to find on your essay! Having enough sources to analyse is important, I was struggling to write my essay because my topic was on the political structure of the Khmer Rouge. So if you do have a lot of resources on the abusive fathers of Hitler and Stalin, maybe then you should choose it! That is my small two cent on your topic. I am sure whatever you do, it will end up being an amazing essay, do talk to your supervisor and ask them for help! that is why they are there!
  2. I am starting IB2, and I am also doing History HL. If anyone can help me with some books as well, it would be amazing! I am doing Paper 2: Authoritarian and Single Party States, and Cold War. And Paper 3: South East Asia (China and Japan)!

  4. Hi Hass, I was in the same position as you were last year, I took economics for GCSE instead of history. And now I am taking Higher History and Higher Econ. It was quite tough in the beginning and even now, especially since I didn't have the skills to write a history essay. But it is my favorite class, and you definitely have to put in a lot of work with different essays and lots of reading. And if you are doing it at SL you will be fine! Because you will have a whole year to study for the two topics and then you will improve by a lot! And if you are in UWC you will do fine! I have friends from UWC Li Po Chun and they are doing great!
