  4. How does one determine the overall meaning of a book? Not looking for themes/motifs, rather something more like author's intent or what the novel brings to light. I can often think of several ideas but nothing that I feel is enough.

  6. I am planning to write an extended essay in French, which will have to be submitted in 2019. I know that the topic I want to associate it with is French literature, but I need to narrow it down. How can I narrow it? Any suggestions would be helpful. Also, if I'm writing it in French language subject, does it have to be written in French?
  7. So, I am currently looking into topics that I want to do for my history ee and I've kind of hit a wall at this point. I wanted to focus my essay on the personal beliefs of 16th century English monarchs and how they influenced religious practices during the Tudor dynasty. But, I'm not sure what the exact significance of the essay would then be? Was there any direct negative or positive outcomes from the reign of the Tudor monarchs?? Does anyone have any advice on how I can expand on this topic??
  8. Hello, I've just joined IBSurvival today and I was hoping to get some help. Not sure exactly what I'm allowed to ask, but I hope I'll be able to find some answers either way I was wondering if someone had any tips on organising and structuring an extended essay. My topic is comparing and contrasting social housing development strategies and policies in 2 different cities. However, I feel like I don't know what to write - as in how much of for example, the history of the city, policies, etc...- and where to write it under (as in sub topics I guess). If anyone has any tips or can recommend anything at all, they will be gladly taken
  9. So, I have recently started looking into extended essay topics and I'm not really sure what to do. I'm focusing on history and so far I've come up with the idea to focus the essay on how the rise in political power of the Roman Catholic Church in medieval England affected the lives of the people. But, I'm kinda hesitant on this topic as I'm not sure if this topic would be good to write 4000 words on. Any suggestions on how I could expand upon this idea???

  11. Hello there! I'm currently struggling with the tok essay , i chose the 5th prescribed tittle 'the best explanation is the simplest explanation' .since it is necessary for the maximum grade to have ''a sustained focus on knowledge questions connected to the prescribed title—developed with investigation of different perspectives and linked effectively to areas of knowledge and/or ways of knowing.'' this is not clear enough since i read reports about the tok essay that said many students didnt use knowledge questions properly , plus we dont have anyone that can help us with tok in the highschool ,if you know how to use them in the essay could you explain them please?
  12. Hey all! So I have to hand in a draft of my written assignment for English A SL in the coming week. Our teacher can only give us feedback this once and there after we are on our own. I understand that it counts for 25% of the grade which is a lot so I don't want to compromise on this. I was looking at the assessment criteria and it is as follows: A: Reflective statement (3 marks)B: Knowledge and understanding (6 marks)C: Appreciation of writer's choices (6 marks)D : Organization and development (5 marks)E: Language (5 marks) I don't really get C: Appreciation of writer's choices. How do I show this in my essay. In the body I have basically three main paragraphs that prove the thesis statement. It is about a play so most of the content is just evidence through dialogue and behavior of the main character. How do I incorporate say the significance of this and this metaphor if it does not lead to achieving the goal of proving my thesis? And what if the play doesn't have that much in terms of writer's choices? What exactly is writer's choices? Also can someone outline what to write in the conclusion? I read somewhere here that you sum up your main points explain the significance of the final product and also come up with something new. Also if anyone has any tips generally with the WA or just essays in English it would be a great help to list them here, I haven't had much practise in school for essays and I don't feel very confident considering it is to be externally assessed. Thanks! Haseeb
  13. Our TOK teacher told us that we need to explore at-least 2 KQs in an essay. So how do you get multiple KQs so that you do not deviate from the prescribed topic. I was thinking of having a central KQ ,and then also having a supporting KQ about personal and shared knowledge. However, how can I include personal and shared KQ for any topic? And if not, how can I have another KQ?
  14. Hi guys, I want to read Law in university and would like to do a law-related EE. This is the research question I have been thinking about: To what extent did the 1975 china constitution help Mao to consolidate his power? What do you guys think? Thank you
  15. I would like to ask you guys about my extended essay topic, and honestly, tell me if it's fine. Can we successfully genetically engineer E.coli bacteria to fix nitrogen?. As the title suggests, I would chemically engineer e.coli bacteria to go through the process of natural nitrogen fixation. Concerning tools, I got in contact with a university nearby and they agreed to help. Am sorry if this sounds like it was written in a hurry because... well.. it was.
  16. Hey, i was wondering how you can include, in paper 1 and 2, the historiography and discussion of historians' points of views: write the arguments of the essay and then prior to the conclusion do a separate topic discussing the historiography, or should I include historiography for each argument I use (e.g Imperialism argument and thus include the view of an historian which thinks it was a fundamental cause for the outbreak of WWI - do this for every argument). So far, I have been doing the first, that is, writing all arguments and in the end do a separate discussion (more less 8/10 lines), so that I can then conclude the essay. What do you think it should be done/how do you do it?
  17. Hey Everyone, I am new on this site so idk how it works exactly, but basically my history teacher told me that it is time for me to start thinking about my IA topic. Since I have been reading a non-fiction book about Noel Field, a Stalinist American spy, which really grabbed my attention I though maybe I could do my IA on him, or some sort of Soviet espionage. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance Eszter
  18. Hi! I have some questions about the EE. I am doing my EE in Spanish A Literature HL. I already have the books I want to analyze, my question and my supervisor accepted it. I want to analyze the use of setting of two different books. This is the research title nd the research question I want to work on: Research Title: Una exploración, comparación y análisis de los espacios diegéticos en dos novelas, Pedro Páramo y Cien años de soledad Research Question: ¿Hasta qué punto los espacios diegéticos pueden considerarse personajes en las novelas Pedro Páramo y Cien años de soledad? Now, the questions... Do the quotes count as words in the 4,000 words? How many paragraphs (approximately) does a 4,000 word essay look like? Do I need to add reference for a Language EE?
  19. Hello! So recently I have been struggling to with the Extended Essay research question or topic in general. My supervisor isn't much help tbh, but I think I might have figured it out. Basically I am doing World studies in English and History. I chose immigration to be my global issue and decided to focus on Germany (my local area). This my research question: To what extent did Germans try to push the Turkish guest-workers (immigrants) out of Germany during the time 1960-90s and how was literature used to isolated immigrants? Is it any good? Is it too brought? The thing is I am not sure how I can bring English into this without trying to find a piece of literature and analyse it. Another thing is, a teacher of mine told us to choose the subject that we are going to study later but I don't think I am going into English and Literature even though I would love to do political science, my parents are planning something in Biology, basically science area. But I chose World Studies because I am really interested in global issues and political issues such as mass immigration, or identity politics etc.
  20. Heyy I'm a BM HL student and currently got assigned to do a concept essay on Amazon's culture. However, my teacher would not give us good exemplars to know how the essay is supposed to be written out... So is it possible if any of you are willing to show or found an example that can benefit future BM essay? Thanks a lot!
  21. For english A1 in extended essay, for the book, do you know any good ideas? Thanks for your time.
  22. Hey Guys, So I am at that time in my junior year where I have to propose three extended essay research questions but I have no idea what to do. I wanna do it in English, Visual Arts or Art History and about something related to women deprivation/representation, segregation or something similar to that. Do you guys have any ideas for my research question? I would really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance!
  23. Hello, I am a first year IB student and I have started to consider my EE topic. I want to study Biomedical/Biological Engineering in future; my courses are Chemistry, Physics, Math, Turkish A, English B and ITGS. Keeping my goal in mind, I thought that an extended essay on Physics or Chemistry would look good for the college applications. However writing an extended essay on those is a tough job and I am not genuinely sure if I can hit A with an EE on Physics. On the other hand, Language A is a course that I really enjoy and I believe that a research on Turkish literature would be both easy and fun. My concern is that an extended essay on Language A could be a weak spot for an engineering applicant. Do you think that would affect my application? Should I switch to Physics or Chemistry even if there is a possibility that my grade will not be high? Thank you in advance.
  24. Hey Guys, I chose to do my extended essay on history, and am currently really stuck on choosing a topic. I really need an A on my extended essay, because my TOK presentation did not go as expected. Would appreciate all and any inputs regarding any suggestions/ ideas for history ee topics. Also, I heard that only 3% of the people in the world get an A in History EE. Is that true?
  25. This is not my actual TOK essay, this is just a practice essay we are doing at school. right now we are studying human sciences in TOK and the teacher gave us this question: Knowledge gained in the human sciences cannot be considered useful I really need help with it because I am a little bit lost...
