  1. Hi all, I am wondering if anyone has a fool-proof formula for writing a lab report hypothesis? I have seen different opinions from everywhere, but I am trying to create a detailed and proper hypothesis, that follows whatever the correct format is. thanks!
  2. HELLO So I have some questions about the Independent Study (Documentary script) for HL film. I am interested in dystopian films, but unsure how to structure my thesis. I would like to focus on film theory rather than history, but am unsure if I need to be super specific (e.g. the use of lighting to highlight the societal fears of artificial intelligence in dystopian films) or something more general (e.g. the use of cinematic techniques to create meaning in dystopian films) Thanks!
  3. I suggest one day on the weekend, maybe saturday. Keep it to 5 hours a week. As you get into the final year having a job gets HECTIC.
  4. My favourite time of the year is when summer is suddenly no longer summer, the nights get colder and every morning is a little bit colder than the one before. The breeze starts to change with each new day and you find you are treasuring the warm pockets of sunshine and a jacket. Winter If you had the choice between having one wish granted, or granting someone else's wish - what would you choose?
  5. I haven't heard that song in so long!! Listening to breezeblocks- alt j

  8. that is an excellent question I have absolutely no idea
  9. 1. What is your real name? Lucie 2. Where are you from? Canada/Australia 3. How did you find out about IB Survival? Deep in exam procrastination 4. What made you register on IB Survival? I wanted to download documents but then realised you need to become VIP member. Damn. 5. When did you (approximately) register here? Last year sometime. 6. What is your favourite IB subject? FILM! 7. When are you graduating? END OF THIS YEAR 8. What are your plans for university? Studying international things in Canada 9. What are your free-time hobbies?

Also, making the search bar useful and actually find things
  10. I do HL psych and it's awesome - it's just a lot more content. If you enjoy psychology and dislike chemistry, then definitely doing something more enjoyable will be easier to learn! Even if you are the only student, everything you need to potentially teach yourself HL psychology is online. To be honest, I use online resources more than my teacher and do well.
  11. Well, i don't agree. Children themselves aren't racist. I read this study (can't remember where) in which young kids were exposed to different races. the kids managed very well. Racism is, in my opinion, a creation of society. Factually, society tends to place emphasis on fairness. Hence (no offense intended here), large portions of the Western World are given a lot of importance in the Eastern World, and Asian people in particular. A recent study in Japan, Korea and Singapore showed that women were having surgery to look more "Western" to the extent of having calves cut, and skin bleached. Hence, you can see that racism is in fact a socially created concept. Human beings are born with the aim to love everyone, but society changes us. So I don't agree with your statement that Racism is inbuilt. Though I do agree education is needed. In addition, I want to point out that even other so called "discriminated" races are racist. For example, I personally know people who say this "You shouldn't go to America or Britain or anywhere because they will hate you for being Asian. You should stay in Asia as you will become a second rate citizen in the West." Now, this is racism again. So really, both sides need to accept this. Just my two cents. Oh no I totally agree with you. By being 'inbuilt from birth' I meant that from birth we are raised to be racist. It's not an innate thing, it's something we are taught to be. So yes definitely societal forces are hugely influential on the development of racism. I definitely agree, children aren't born with judgements, but as they grow older these judgements are taught to them (parents, teachers, society etc.) (I didn't mean to sound like I meant racism was genetic/force of nature).
  12. Racism is one of those things that is inbuilt into us from birth. The way we are raised, the things we are exposed to dictate the development of our schemas - they way we store information about the world. From a psychology point of view, it is very hard to change mental structures and stereotypes that we already have stored about certain groups of people, which is why racism is so hard to eradicate. But not impossible. This is why education from birth is so essential. If children are raised to not have judgements towards groups of people (education from the parents, teachers) then eventually our world will be a world without racism. It is difficult to change people's mindsets once they have already formed set judgements about other people.
  13. Well, technically yes. Your supervised writing isn't submitted (I am pretty sure) to the IB, but it can be monitored (so the IB can request to see it if they wish.) Because of this, your supervised writing has to show some kind of link or development in relation to your written assignment. For example, in my supervised writing for "A Doll's House" by Henrik Ibsen, I chose to answer the prompt about characterisation (I think??) but then ended up writing my written assignment about the importance of entrances and exits in developing one of the character's motives etc. I agree that the prompts are sometimes really random, but your supervised writing doesn't need to be amazing or formatted, just essentially write as many things as possible in the time limit and cover as many bases related to the prompt as you can - that way when you go to write your written assignment you have left options open for yourself.
