  1. Hello, So in my class we started working on our extended Essay, but right now so far we have only met with our supervisor and looked at what topic we would like to work on. I picked my favorite book Divergent for an English paper and I was going to into how females are change agents within their stories. My teacher said that maybe I should look at a classic Dystopian novel and compare possibly compare it to mine. He recommended a couple and I liked Fahrenheit 451, but now I'm having problems with solidifying my question. I began reading Fahrenheit 451 and other than the genre there is not much in common with the book at least not what I want to argued about the female characters. Can someone help me? I don't know if I should change my question and focus on the themes of these two books? Or maybe I should compare it to another book? Or is there way I can work around my book? I pudo really love to do Divergent. It is my favorite book and it would make everything much easier when it came to my essay.
  2. Hi, I'm a junior IB student and we have started looking into our Extended Essays for a little while now. As my topic I choose English specifically language. As a sort of an idea for my question my teacher and I decided upon, " How has social media influenced the portrayal of women today in society?" I found several sources, but I feel that it's so broad that it will be difficult to structure my essay. Furthermore, it seems like such a broad topic that I do not know what I will be arguing. I have been reading several examples to help me out and from what I've seen a lot of the essays are based on books and examining them. I was wondering if maybe I should center my question upon a book I really like. For instance, my favorite book is Divergent by Veronica Roth. I was wondering if maybe I could argue something along the lines of how Veronica Roth's portrayal of women within the novels is a form of feminism? I think this would benefit because it is my favorite book so I could really elaborate on this topic. If anyone could help me out on narrowing down my question or whether I should change it. Thank you!!
  3. Hi, I'm currently in the middle of writing my Historical Investigation and I am having some trouble. At first I had trouble choosing a question and ultimately choose "how did the camps of interned Japanese to that of interned Jews during World War Ⅱ?". I was having trouble on how to structure my essay so I talked with my teacher and we decided upon doing the conditions in which the internees were kept in and the following paragraph would be about the treatment towards these groups which includes physical abuse and death tolls. In each paragraph I would be comparing how in some ways they were similar, but then comparing how they were completely different. I'm still unsure of whether it's solid enough. I'm having a bit of trouble being analytical in my essay, so far I just have some personal accounts and some statistics. Any recommendations on how I can more analytical? Thank you

  5. What would you recommend instead?
  6. Okay so I might try to focus on one theme in each paragraph. For instance, the first paragraph would focus on the jobs within each camp. Then the following paragraph would focus on the food given as wel brutality by soldiers. Then lastly the other paragraph would focus on the treatment in relation to gas chambers and how one camp had it as opposed to the other camp had no such thing. My question is that are the body paragraphs to stand on their own or are they too vague?
  7. Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with the investigation portion of my HI. My question is "To what extent did the treatment of interned Japanase Americans compare to interned Jews during World War Two?" I'm having trouble coming up with my body paragraphs. I'm not sure whether I should do one paragraph about how they're completely different and another one about their similarities. Any suggestions?

    History HI

    Hi guys! We've been working on our HI in history but I've been struggling so much. I thought my question was solid but then I looked more into it and I feel like it's too narrow.The topic I was thinking was WW2 ( History is my weakest subject and I really don't know what else to go for) and for the question I had thought about why did the US' Isolationism during 1930s-1940 fail to keep them out of war? And I had my book sourses ready but then I started looking more into them and there's just a lot of information but not really centered around this idea. Then I went online and couldn't find much. Idk if I should change my question or idk
