  1. I have a few more days until I have to decide on my Extended essay topic. I am torn between choosing Business (HL) or English (SL), but I'm not sure if I can do my extended essay for an SL class. I most likely want to study Business or marketing in university; however, I just thought about a really interesting idea for an extended essay that only applies to my English Lang&Lit subject. I know it'll be better for me to pick Business as that is the direction I want to go towards to in the future, but I feel like I will be way more interested in writing my extended essay in English.

    I'm trying to write my WIT essay for higher literature, but I'm having trouble. My question is "How is Hanna portrayed as the victim in part three, chapter eight in "The Reader?"" If you have any points on how she's portrayed as a victim that'd be great!!
  3. "To what extent was the cold war responsible for the separation between North Korea and South Korea?" is this too broad? please someone help how i should phrase my research question. I really do have interest and a lot of knowledge in this area (the Korean War) & (The Cold War)
  4. Hey guys! So I am writing my last written task for Russian & Literature HL. And as it is task 2 I decided to make an analysis of an advert(s) and how they would change if the target audience changed. My question is: is it really allowed to analyze more that one advert-banner? Coz in the examples our teacher sent us, there is one analyzing a photo(single one), so I don't really know if this is okay to have more. I look forward to your replies^^
  5. So, my class was told that our EE's are due next year in May and our first draft is due in a few weeks. I heard History is a great subject to look into for the EE but our teacher advised us not to focus on it since our class doesn't take that subject anymore ( ☹️ ). Anyway, I plan on finishing my TOK, CAS and EE before the year so I can focus on my studies next year. Unfortunately, I still haven't come up with a satisfactory topic yet for EE. I thought of doing it on the Western influence on Japanese art but I doubt I'd find any articles or information that could potentially build a 4,000 word essay. So I was hoping if anyone could please give me some interesting topics for EE I could perhaps look into, preferably English or History (my supervisor is a major in both these subjects, so it won't matter). Please help me, I'm actually really stressed out and worried about this.
  6. So the teacher gave us a past paper where we had to analyse and compare and contrast between two texts. I kind of struggle with writing that because I had no idea how to build up on the analysis. I scored pretty poorly on that and I asked the teacher for some feedback and she told me that my text wasn't organised and that it was all over the place. So I was wondering if anyone could please tell me how to structure the text for analyzing and comparing and contrasting between two texts?
  7. Hi I have to do a supervised writing on women at point zero by Nawal El Saadawi and I have 0 idea wha the prompt will be. Any advice on what to do in order to prepare and how to ace the supervised writing ?

    Books you are reading

    Which books are you reading/did you read for your Literature course? (English or other languages) Which one was your favorite?
  10. Hi, I need to write a written assignment for the external assessment which is the 1500 word literary essay on a work studied in part1. I'm writing my essay on Death and the Maiden by Ariel Dorfman. My guiding question for the essay is "How does Dorfman create conflict between Paulina & Gerardo through the use of dramatic dialogue and how is it resolved?" I plan to constrain it to act 1 scene 1 while linking it to other parts of the play. Do you think that this is an appropriate topic? And I'm not sure about the structure of the essay. What do I start writing with? Please help ASAP!! Thanks
  11. I made the stupid decision of writing my EE on a subject which my school doesn't offer, and regret it... but whatever! I'd love it if somebody who takes the course or goes to a school that offers it could help me out by sending me some kind of study guide, curriculum, a sample essay of any kind or even putting me in contact with somebody would help-- I'm just looking to better understand the subject and hopefully find someone that can give me some tips or even read my essay! Thank you so much guys!!
  12. This is an internally assessed essay I wrote on nature imagery in Macbeth in 2018 during my Year 1 English Lit course.
  13. This is a practice commentary I wrote for an in-class evaluation (internally assessed) on the book The Picture of Dorian Gray.

    Great Gatsby IOP

    I need help deciding on a topic for my English IOP. I've decided on doing a just a slideshow presentation, so it needs to be really good. The only topic I've thought up of is name symbolism, but that's a really popular topic. Any ideas?
  15. 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
  16. I’m trying to decide the subjects to pick for my IB studies next year. Biology and chemistry hl have already been decided as I’m trying to get into medicine. My current placeholder of a choice is studying psychology hl, maths sl, and language A lang and lit, and ab initio Arabic (on top of bio and chem hl). I honestly don’t know if it’s a good idea to study three sciences (yes, I’m counting psychology) at hl! I didn’t get to study psychology during my middle years as my school didn’t offer the subject, but I’m really interested in the subject. Am I setting myself up for misery and anxiety ridden nights before and after the exams or is the combination that I’ve currently chosen feasible enough? And by the way, does an ab initio second language count as an SL subject and bear the same grading weights or am I supposed to study an extra subject??
  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. Hi! I'm considering looking at The Trial by Kafka and 1984 by Orwell in terms of the nature of authority, the position of the individual in society and the methods the people in authority use to maintain power. Do you think this is a good choice for my EE? I haven't come up with a research question yet but something to do with society vs. the individual? I realize that these books are somewhat overdone in the IB but this is what I'm most interested in doing and I am going to refine my research question into something that hasn't previously been done. Thanks!
  19. This is a sentence from my EE and I really don't know if it sounds good, especially the red part I highlighted. Would be really grateful if you could tell me please what you think! "Eight decades apart, the books have never been compared, although plenty of interesting connections can be made between them and the context of feminism. Thus the following research question arises [...]"
  20. Hi, I want to switch my subjects but I'm already on the 2nd semester of 11th grade. My courses are; Turkish HL, English HL, Visual Arts HL, History SL, Physics SL and Math SL. I want to switch Turkish HL to either Math HL or Physics HL. The reason why I want to do it is because the teacher is cancer. I don't want to tell the details but just know that she's not a good teacher... Also I don't like literature and stuff. Is it possible to switch? Would it worth? The course I want to study in university is nothing related to Turkish. I'm very regretful about this situation.
  21. So for my extended essay, I wanted to write about anime because it is the only thing that interests me. Due to my love for books,as well, i decided to do a Literature EE, however I am not quite sure what category my EE falls under. I want to make sure my EE actually fits under a category before I get too invested in it. I am planning to compare a potrayal of a society in a novel with a society in an anime. Because the anime is well not a literacy work I couldn't figure it out by reading the extended essay guide and the teachers at my school aren't so sure. Please help me out it would be appreciated. Thank you.

    EE Lit help for final

    Hi, I'm currently in year 12 (second year ib) and writing my final EE essay. I'm having some troubling not straying from the topic too far since I've only one main point and a only few subpoints (which are slightly weak since they focus more on the morals that the novel targets but not exactly the structure or language). My topic is: How does the letter structure of The White Tiger reflect the purpose of the novel and thus the reader's understanding and intepretation of Balram's actions? And my question is what are some other aspects I should explore to make sure I have enough content while at the same time not straying from the topic, and how the epistolary structure contributes to the White Tiger's theme of individuality.
  23. So my supervisor and I have settled on a topic for my extended essay. I haven't quite formulated a knowledge question yet for this, but I have a rough idea as to where I might want to go. My topic is exploring the societal trend of diverse casting in the entertainment world (Novels, theater, film, etc.). I would be using written books, some scripts, articles, etc. as my evidences and sources for expanding into my topic. But my supervisor and I also want to include visual references, like recordings of plays and musicals or looking at films. My school's IB Coordinator was iffy on this when I asked her for the OK on looking at video, she says it feels too much like IB Film(which my school does not yet have), but she said that she and I should both do research to verify this. So basically I was denied use of video sources until we found something that said it was okay. I have read through the 2015 English essay reports and it said nothing of specific to my issue, then I looked through ibo.org and so far I have come up empty. Does anyone here know whether or not I can do this for my research? Or should I search for a new topic that doesn't involve film? OR if anyone knows a better source where I could find the answer? Thank you!

    Context: I’m writing my EE in Japanese. How much literature do we have to study? Does it have to be a comparison? Has anyone out there done a language b EE and can you talk to me?
  25. For the extended essay, could anyone clarify the limitations of what books I could possibly use? I know a lot of it depends on how well I do with analyzing and stuff, but I feel like I have a lot of ideas for comparisons that wouldn't actually do well once I write them. Here are some of my possible topics, and they are all over the place because I feel like I can't get a good grasp of what direction I can go in, so I've considered just about every book I've ever read and tried to compare it. Could you tell me just if any of my topics are actually appropriate and something I can work with or if they are all stretching too far? The theme of female oppression/gender codes in The Story of an Hour (Kate Chopin) and Madame Bovary Magical Realism in A Wild Sheep Chase and James and the Giant Peach Themes of alienation and existentialism in Frankenstein and Notes From the Underground The meaning of being human in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and Frankenstein Also, how hard would it be to write my ee on either one novel, or several novels by the same author? Is it much harder than a comparison?
