  1. Hello! I have to have my English EE book choice in on Monday, and my choices have mostly been shot down by my school. My number one choice is Stephen King's The Gunslinger but my teachers have said that since he's a "pop culture" writer, IB will frown upon it. They're adamant that I choose a winner or finalist for the Man Booker Prize, but none of the books that have won really seem to interest me. My favorite genre is fantasy, but I also enjoy sci-fi (The Island of Dr. Moreau?), (some) historical fiction, and adventure. If you have any advice on whether The Gunslinger will work or if you know of any other books I could use, that'd be great! Thanks!
  2. I have a topic idea, but am seeking advice as well as help forming a question. I plan on researching the effect bilingual education (second language acquisition?) has on childhood development within psychology. I plan to look specifically on education and brain development. First off, does that seem like a possible topic? I've never taken a psychology class, and my school does not offer DP psych. Any advice on how to approach it in a psychology standpoint would be very appreciated! Secondly, I need help refining a question. I think I will word it as: To what extent does second language acquisition affect childhood development? or something like that. I'm having trouble coming up with question starters other than "what" or "to what extent". Again, any advice is appreciated! Thanks!!
  3. So I started off with choosing The Civil Rights Movement as my topic for the Extended Essay but then I was told not to pick a topic that's so common, because the markers usually get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again. And also, if you're going to do a topic that's so well known, it has to be exceptional. So I was hoping if you guys could please put some suggestions that I could focus on that has a sufficient information for me to able to conduct the essay. Thank you! x
  4. Hi guys! I’m choosing the topic of my English B EE topic. Most of the topics I’ve seen in the internet are related to the books but I was wondering if I could do it on more “social” topic like for example how does the development of the internet affects sth?
  5. Hi. I've decided to do my EE in English, focusing on Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I'm not getting any good advice from my supervisor, and the internet isn't really helping me. I've gone through a lot of book changes prior to this, more specifically dystopian and feminist books. However, I've read that these are really overused topics, so I wanted to try to think out of the box. I decided to choose Percy Jackson because I think that there is a lot of content I can analyze for my 4,000 words. It's okay to choose a relatively 'easy' book for EE, right? Right now, I need help on choosing a topic and formulating a good research question. Honestly, I'm stuck at choosing which topic I should focus on. I'm scared if the topics I have in mind will be good enough for an EE. I would really appreciate feedback on the topics, and the research questions that come along with them. Here's what I have so far. 1. The Portrayal of Greek Mythology in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief How does Riordan portray classic characters from ancient Greek mythology in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief? : Classic vs revised character traits of the Greek gods How does Riordan associate ancient Greek mythology with modern literature in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: Plots of the original Greek myths affected by modern technology, environment, characteristics of the Greek gods, etc. 2. Family Roles in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief How does Riordan portray family roles in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: Nature of family, duties and responsibilities of a parent and a child; how gods neglect their roles as parents, and how their demigod children are expected to do more 3. Coming of Age in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief How does Riordan portray the coming of age in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: How internal conflicts faced by the character is portrayed in the form of monsters and evil villains 4. The Hero Concept in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief How does Riordan define the meaning of a hero in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief?: Characteristics of a hero; analysing different characters and how they are considered heroes
  6. I’m doing my Extended Essay on the effects on the city’s tourism of a music festival and all the smaller events it sponsors. I’m planning to mention how it gathers people and activates different economic areas, so it triggers economic growth in the region. My question would be ‘To what extent is the music festival effective at increasing tourism in the city?’ or something along those lines. Though I think it’s too broad and should be specified more. I appreciate any tips on how to make it more narrow or maybe approach the question in a different manner! Thanks.

    IB Bio EE

    Hi all! I am in the process of deciding an EE topic. I have come up with a possible topic but upon discussing with my teacher she has told me that it does not have enough depth for IB diploma and lacks a biochemistry angle. My proposed topic is: The regeneration of Planaria Researching whether freshwater Planarian (flatworms) reproduce asexually by regeneration and what factors affect its ability to regenerate. Essentially, Planarians possess neoblasts (pluripotent adult stem cells) which have the ability to transform into a huge range of cells that are able to maintain and regenerate. I will be cutting planarian into segments, ranging in size. I will also research some other factors that may affect its ability to regenerate and incorporate those factors into my experiment. There is a lot missing from this and I am hoping to research and develop this more, but for now, I am stuck. My question is, how can I make this experiment more "IB-like?" and does there need to be biochemistry involved in these topics? Or is it because my teacher prefers us to focus on biochemistry because it is all we have learnt in IB Bio so far?
  8. Hi, I am in dire need of help with selecting my math ee topic. I currently have in mind brachistochrone curves, but I can't think of a suitable RQ.
  9. Geometrical designs used by architects in different places of the world. Math is a tool through which beauty can be calculated using ratios and therefore architects use geometry and many other mathematical concepts to build buildings. Some concepts to explore are geometric proofs, constructions, the Golden Ratio, and the Fibonacci Series.
  10. Is this research question appropriate for world studies extended essay:- To what extent has the migration of Indian domestic workers into Dubai, UAE affected its economic performance and racial and ethnic discrimination? I plan on combining the subjects, Economics and Psychology.
  11. I feel so conflicted right now because I don't know what to choose for my EE and I wanted to finalize my topic over a week ago! PLEASE HELP ! I wanted to do chemistry since it is something I plan to major in, so I came up with the question "To what extent does silverskin black garlic provide a reliable source of antioxidants ?" I thought it was a good topic, but the question is more biology, and unfortunately, I am not taking biology. I asked my chemistry teacher for some advice and he said that there was a reason no year 2s did chemistry as their subject. He said it would be too much work for an experiment since there would be a lot of error and it would be hard to write 4000 words on a topic that you do not know very well about. A lot of year 2 students agreed with him and recommended that I do english or history since it would be wayy easier. I really wanted to do this topic since I know I would be way more interested in it but now I feel like it would be harder than I imagine. Another teacher said chemistry is doable but difficult; however if done well it can look very good. I don't know exactly what do to for english or history. For history I am interested in Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler, and Mao But I am lost in what I should do. Please help me. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  12. Hello everyone, I am currently searching for a topic for my Extended Essay in Chemistry and I am completely lost... I want to study medicine in the future and so I was hoping to find a topic that could be related in a way to that field. Does anyone has an idea or wants to share what was his/her topic for a Chemistry EE? Thank you very much
  13. Hi everyone, I was planning to do my extended essay in chemistry and came up with a topic. I haven't framed the research question yet, but my topic is about UV and sunscreens. So I was thinking about finding 1 or 2 chemicals in 2 different sunscreens and comparing their effect on blocking harmful UV (UVA and UVB). I also plan to determine which substance is more effective at blocking harmful UV rays. Is this topic okay? I wasn't sure whether it completely fits in the extended essay topic category. I've been having lots of trouble finding a good topic. Thanks for your help.
  14. Hey so for my extended essay in physics i came up with this topic: "The optimum conditions required to create the most efficient waterwheel". I was wondering if this was too vague or if it has too many things consider. Please tell me what you think
  15. So I'm doing an extended essay on physics on the relationship between tension and frequency on a violin string. This is my second topic (as first one was too hard to analyze data) and I'm worried that the topic is too generic. Can extended essays with a generic topic score well or do they have to be quite original?
  16. Hey guys! I am doing my extended essay in physics, and I want to do it on how the speed of a soccer ball affect its projectile motion for this experiment I will have to keep a constant speed while I kick the soccer ball. How do I keep a constant speed? Also, does doing experiments on simulation affect our grades? It would be great if you could help me out. Thanks in advance. P.S. please reply ASAP!
  17. I have really decided my topic of my English B EE to be metaphors in The Fault In Our Stars since it's deeply moving and unique in rhetorical strategies. But in this forum, I saw many past discussions about John Green's books that they are not classical and it might be risky to write my EE on this topic. My optimal career choice for the future is material science/ optics and electrical engineering, but I don't have enough resources to conduct a research to finish my EE on natural sciences. I have another choice, which is on analyzing the oligopoly in airlines competitions(extent of collusion,the role of government and state owned airlines,price discrimination,etc.), but I am a Eco SL student who just entered two extra HL classes per week. The truth is SL Eco does not cover any section of oligopoly, so I have to study an extra bit of work. Give me some suggestions on whether I should write English B EE or Economics EE, thanks!
  18. hey, i have to submit my ee topic soon and i was just wondering other than length of the writing and marking scheme, what's the difference between a topic chosen for ee and topic for ia? I'm asking this since i fear that i may choose something for my ee but wish to write something like that for the ia (which isnt allowed) If someone can answer my question that will be very appreciated, thanks for the help!!
  19. Hello guys, I have taken Extended Essay in Physics which is my HL subject, I was thinking of doing it on the Projectile motion in soccer. Is it a good topic? What experiment can I do in it?
  20. Hello everyone! In the next month or so I have to have my EE topic chosen. Yikes! I'm leaning toward an English literature EE. Unfortunately, I cannot think of a book to write about - most books I've read at school have been analyzed to death and would be scored harshly by people who knew every line (i.e. Hamlet) and most books I've read personally may or may not count as having literary merit. Anyway, I need some help with book choices. I don't care if I do an analysis on one book or a comparison of two. Here are some ideas I have: +Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut - I like the idea of this one, haven't read it yet but it sounds interesting and a friend told me it was good. A little concerned about the content and whether or not it has been overdone. +Catch-22 by Joseph Heller - Again, haven't read this one but it seemed like a good book to compare to Cat's Cradle. On the other hand, it seems really complex and might be hard to mesh with other ideas. +Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury - I've started this one but am only a few pages in. I'm a little concerned about how it lends itself to such a lengthy analysis. +Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston - I'm currently reading this one and I really enjoy it, but it might be another overdone book. I'm considering writing about the relation of salvation in the book to the social struggles of the time but I don't want to get off topic. It would also be cool to compare to a more modern book about society, looking between the time periods. Other than these ideas, I've really enjoyed the school books of To Kill A Mockingbird, A Tale of Two Cities, 1984, The Odyssey, as well as my own reads like The Golden Compass, The Rithmatist, Abarat, and Harry Potter. It would be cool to do a comparison of religious themes between The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Golden Compass because they portray religion very differently, but both are considered children's books so that probably wouldn't work. Overall, my favorite genre is definitely fantasy and if you have any recommendations of fantasy books with literary merit (besides The Lord of the Rings lol) I'm all ears. Thanks in advance!
  21. Hello! I'm having certain problems with my EE! [not the real one, it is just a "trial", as my school always does one for students in year 1]. It is on biology, my research question is: "How do certain food groups affect human memory and learning?" [human physiology], although I've realized that it fits psychology more. Also, would IB consider testing on yourself as ethical? I know that they aren't lovers of testing on others. Thx!
  22. Hello guys, I am due to submit my extended essay and I have given my subject choice as chem+bio, but I cannot come up with any good extended essay topic. I want to do something related to medicine. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
  23. Hey guys! I have a general idea on the topic I'm about to do, but I'm unsure of how to construct the question. Basically, silica gel can be dried and reused once it has maxed out its adsorption of moisture, but I'm not sure how I can phrase that into a question. So far, I've thought of something along the lines of 'does the effectiveness of moisture adsorption of silica gel decrease after complete regeneration of the gel?' Thank you!!
  24. Hi everybody, I was planning on doing my EE on Advertisements and more specifically... Celebrity endorsements on instagram. However, one of the celebrities that I was planning on writing about deleted his instagram and i am left here wondering if i should scrap my topic and do another one that is 'safer' (gender stereotypes in advertisements) or if i should change from Adidas to Calvin Klein. Your help is much appreciated, thank you
  25. Hi, I'm starting to write my extended essay and internal assessment for history. My chosen subject for my extended essay is history. I've decided on two questions, but I'm not sure if I should switch them. Also, I didn't really like my extended essay question because I believe that the argument would be unclear and un-focused, could anyone please guide me in the right direction. Thank you. Extended Essay To what extent did McCarthyism alter the political climate of the United States during the Second Red Scare in the 1950s? Internal Assessment Evaluate the extent to which the United States played a role in the 1973 Chilean Coup d’etat over Salvador Allende. Any advice would be helpful!!
