  1. Thank you very much for answering that for me! I think I'll add that in later when I kind've work my head around the dates/evidence I have looked at! I would think that at some point in your IA it would a good idea to define the dates but it doesn't have to be in the title. Speaking for personal experience, I didn't put dates in my question and still got a good score in my first draft (25/25). Just make sure you define the dates (and any other relevant material) in section A.
  2. I did but it's been awhile so I forgot... I can maybe message some of my students. It's a little late to ask my teach now lol I appreciate your input thanks for helping me out and cool to know your mind went in a similar path with the Japanese history!
  3. Thank you so much! ShootingStar16! Good to know! I definitley will work in something about predjudice in the question somehow... and yes I do need to focus a bit on the economy and how that was affected by the Japanese internment and leaving, WWII etc. As far as being too broad goes the question maybe is... but there really is little research that I have found on this topic in 4 different libraries.. so I have a few books with me that will help I don't think being to broad is an issue, but I think your right regarding the question perhaps! Also should I add specific dates like the question/research is going to be leading up to WWII so should I state in my question like 1932-1939 (something like that) *** How did the racial treatment towards the Japanese in British Columbia affect the economy leading up to WWII?**
  4. Oh and as far as the mistreatment goes I am thinking of the sending off to the internment camps and when they also had to leave to go fight in Japan! Before that they had settled their for about 40-50 years and had really invested the time in fishing, and agriculture!
  5. Hey there I would appreciate if I could get an outside look on the question I have for my rough draft of my HI. It's due tomorrow, and I have done little on it, so tonight is gonna be busy.... I do have a direction where I am going and have to stick to this topic at this point lol So far I phrased the question 2 ways just basically need help in what sounds better..? haha 1.) How did the treatment towards the Japanese in British Columbia affect the economy leading up to WWII? 2.) How did the economy shift with the treatment of the Japanese in British Columbia leading up to WWII? *** Should I put specific dates? BTW I am quite unsure of whether or not to put like "racial mistreatment or predjudice" because before I asked my teacher and she said it was biased? Personally while biased I agree... but this is essentially what happened in all the history books I've read..... so I am unsure if I should go with it anyways... or to just leave it as "treatment." Also I know this is not the typical question you get from IB Students... typically its safer to go with something actually on the curriculum (I have found) but I wanted to go in a different direction because nothing interested me at the time... and I realize that many of you probably don't have knowledge on whether that could be a good question or not. At this point though changing topic is NOT UP for consideration.. just to put that out there. I would also like to say that this question is not going to IB because I am not continuing on next year but to get credit for this course I must hand in this darn thing so this is my situation. If anybody else has any ideas of for another questions for this topic I would love to hear!! As well as if you have done something on this before please give me the 4-1-1!! Anyways I know this is short notice and I may not get a reply, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyways! Thanks!
  6. Thank you very much, I think that it's not so much my teachers but the student I am surrounded with. They are really focused on getting through it, and if anything I am the biggest distraction they want to avoid. But I can't bare the thought of experiencing this incredible journey with just myself, I want to share it with others. I haven't started TOK yet but from the sounds of it makes me excited! Maybe It's a sign that I need to take this loneliness and put it to some use (aka homework) Just read your little signature, and definitely procrastinating... biggest issue I need to fix!
  7. Early IB Year 1: One of my greatest strengths through school has been my ability to be a skilled communicator. I've gotten through many speeches, class discussions, and debates just by winging it. My personality has won over many of my teachers in the past and has probably saved me from some awful papers because I am able to negotiate into having a second chance or "cut me some slack." On top of it all I am a social butterfly at school I literally do not have a specific group/clique I talk to everything and everybody. This however is looking like my downfall because IB is coming off to be a very individual experience despite the study groups, and group projects. Everyone in my classes are competitive and intelligent, and keeping to themselves. Ultimately, this pushes me in that position as well because now I have nobody to talk to, and I too have to focus "strictly on the books." It's driving me mad, because now I feel on my own with it all and you'd think that this would help me get everything done, but exactly the opposite because I am desperately looking to other kids that are not in IB to keep my interest and often becoming distracted from what really matters. When it comes down to it I am losing my mind because I was used to my vocal outspoken persona getting me through the years. Now, the only good that will do me is "class participation" (not worth a lot if anything anymore) and oral presentations. I am realizing that I have put a hella lot of studying and isolated late night writing to get through this when I thought that IB was going to allow more growth through the social aspect. Any thoughts?
