Hi all! I know everyone in the Northern hemisphere is just about to get back to school. So, I've been thinking about creating a documentary for CAS. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes during my spring break of DP1. I was wondering if there are any other IB diabetics out there? Anyway, basically what I would like to accomplish is to create this documentary raising awareness on and about Diabetes (both type 1 and 2). I will hopefully be interviewing people and all doing more research. But what I would like you his to contribute to is either send me a picture or video of you and your fellow friends and family saying something about diabetes or where you stand on the topic. Anything that would help make people more conscious and aware of how serious the disease is would help a ton. Of course this will help you with CAS hours, and the fact that it is aimed to be an international project would be great. I am hoping to get this done by November the latest. So please lend a hand and help me spread the word about the seriousness of diabetes. I am also planning to upload the documentary onto YouTube if possible. Email me if you have any questions! Thanks!

iMushu posted a topic in Extended EssayI'm currently working on my visual arts extended essay and so far my main concern has been how to cite my main source. What makes me uncomfortable is that nearly all the information I intend to implement has been solely from a single documentary, as it is essentially a series of designer interviews stitched together to form the history of the Helvetica typeface. Seeing as they're interviews, I'm assuming they're all primary sources, within a documentary. So does this make the documentary a primary source? How would I go about citing material from different interviews, within the same documentary? Is it acceptable to have a large, large block of text (1000+ words) be solely derived from my main source, if it comes to that? Will I lose marks for not using physical text sources? I feel like I'm merely paraphrasing and summarizing this entire film into an argument, which I'm assuming is not what I should be doing! Many thanks in advance!
I have a problem. My English teacher doesn't seem to know what he's doing, so I just need to check a few things. He gave us our 3 works. Lord of the Flies, a number of poems and a documentary called "Flight from Death; the Quest for Immortality". But that doesn't seem to make sense to me. First of all, 2 of the poems from the package he gave us are written by him; and he's not a world famous poet, just so you know. Second, this is Language A Literature, so how is a documentary (I haven't gotten a script or anything) a literary work? He says they're both on the list but I'm pretty doubtful. Is there any way to check if it's actually allowed? Another question: He seems pretty into doing creative presentations and seems to think that interpretive dances are included... So I was thinking I would do something creative to get him to give me a good mark, but are the IOPs moderated because if so I don't want to risk it. Thanks so much for your help!
artygal posted a topic in Extended EssayMy EE (in history) is about the popularization of reinforced concrete in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and how it affected later building efforts. I've been watching a TV show documentary called "America: The Story of Us" which has a segment on steel used in reinforced concrete and skyscrapers, which I think would be incredibly useful for my EE. From what I've been able to see, from previous episodes, the show is surprisingly accurate. Would it be appropriate to use the show as one of my sources, or should I use a separate source with the same information? Thank you very much in advance for your time and answers!
