  1. Show the knowledge and understanding that you gained via the course. If you learnt about feminism in the course, then deal with an issue in your news article that shows that k&u. For example.
  2. I think the IBO has to ask you for permission, first, if they want to use it. For example, as an exemplar. I think this applies to any intellectual property, so it is yours, definitely and the IBO will hold onto it for a while but cannot use it for training without your permission. It is worth asking your IB coordinator to clarify this. It's an interesting question.
  3. Aya.... OK, I see. Well it looks like you don't have much choice, then. You'll have to wait then for everything to be sorted out. It may mean doing your second year next year, which seems your best bet. In the meanwhile, just keep busy, look into doing some Pamoja courses and study the curriculum. Do you *have* to study in Norway or can you not find something more conveniently within range?
  4. Whoah, sounds rough! Have you thought of doing online courses, with Pamoja, for example? I am not sure if they offer ALL courses yet, but it just may allow you to conveniently work on (and get credit) for courses in the meanwhile, if you don't sort out your school thing this year. Can you not just join a local IB, where you are? They r free in Scandinavia, aren't they? I see your Norwegian flag, so assume you have them all around you.
  5. Choose something that is "of literary interest" and is complex enough to allow you write 4000 words. You can also choose two books for a comparative ee, if you think one alone is not enough. But I agree with emmaxesc12 and Nomenclature, ultimately it will depend on you what you choose.
  6. Here's a tip: study your teacher's notes. Brush up. Read up. Review. Are "tips" really what you want, or just plain old elbow grease? If you forget stuff, just review. This really is no secret. There is no shortage of books or online material that you can use and learn from. History is easy that way -- you don't even need to lift a finger to find a ton of material to learn from. What do you mean by #3 -- "I am not too sure about the system of HL History? If you are not sure about what you should be learning in History at IB, just ask your teacher or go to class. Which system are you talking about, anyway?
  7. Do not attach your essay or work to this site or online. It will be picked up by your teacher's plagiarism checker. Also, it is unethical for anyone else to rework your essay so that you get a 7. It must be your own work.
  8. Yes. French ab initio is for absolute beginners -- I mean real beginners, with no prior knowledge of French. French B is for those with sufficient knowledge and experience,to be able to write and communicate at more than an elementary level. If you've never taken French before or cannot say more than a few sentences, then ab initio it is.
  9. What question r u referring to? The one for Individuals and Societies, or another one?
  10. Your teacher's recommendations are really odd. If you follow his/her advice, your EE will not correspond to any of the subjects or categories (or requirements, for that matter) if you do one thing and a little of another. It doesn't work that way. KW0573 is more precise about this and shows you the appropriate categories for English A.
  11. I don't think your teacher's idea is very helpful. Or will lead to a good EE topic. You have to be much more precise. If I were you, I'd focus on a motif, or symbol or some other obviously literary aspect. Choose something that interests you. You have to write 4000 words, after all, so you better be pretty keen on what you do. That's all I can suggest just now. Good luck!
  12. Basically, it works. It is phrased in the acceptable (classic) EE way. And it fits within the category "History" (being far enough in the past). But is it "research-worthy" or "original"? Somehow, the question/topic seems a little too general or banal...something you could easily read up from a History book or from Wikipedia. To my mind there should be something a little more original, or of obvious interest to scholars. Let's see what others say. That's just my hunch, anyway.
  13. Great! I found this from a site, which might also help you. It also has useful examples 2B: essays of a general cultural nature based on specific cultural artifacts This kind of essay should be an analysis of a more general cultural nature but specific to a country or community where the language is spoken. Topics that are too broad and could apply to many cultures (like globalization, the death penalty or eating disorders) will be considered inappropriate by examiners. Essays of a general cultural nature must be based on specific cultural artifacts. Cultural artifacts can include a wide variety of phenomena, ranging from works of fine art to newspapers, magazines and cartoons, to films, television programmes and popular music. -Language French Topic: Social criticism in the songs of MC Solaar Research question: “What is the nature of MC Solaar’s rap critique of modern French society?” Approach: An investigation into the thematic content of MC Solaar’s songs. -Language Japanese Topic: Adverts in the Japanese media Research question: “How and why do Japanese advertisers use such a high proportion of non-Japanese models in advertising?” Approach: An analysis of adverts targeted at the youth market seen over a one-month period, together with an analysis of how these are targeted, and possible reasons why the images used are chosen. -Language Spanish Topic: Representation of women in tango Research question: ”Which roles do women play in tango lyrics?” Approach: A critical and thematic analysis of a corpus of tango lyrics to reveal female roles.
  14. Part of your analysis would involve discussing techniques, but this discussion would have a larger aim. For example, has this artist or technique had some impact on francophone culture or does it reveal some important aspect of contemporary French (or francophone) thought ? You would need to be even more specific, so that you do not simply repeat general knowledge. Narrow it down to a certain class, social order, social group or something equally specific and researchable -- and research-worthy. Remember that your EE has to present an argument on something that has some significance and contributes to our understanding of a movement or culture or social order that is francophone. And it cannot be something that can be easily found in Wikipedia or in an encyclopedia. That is why it is important that you have your own angle and interest and that you are very specific in what you are researching. Does that help a bit more?
