  1. Would it be okay to write my history EE on comic books? like, I want to compare the use of comic books as propaganda in different wars. how could I make a research question out of this?
  2. Hi, I am writing my extended essay in english b, in literature category. I know it has to be a research work, not a descriptive essay, so I'm not sure whether my topic will be accepted. I wanted to write about development of a character and their adaptation to the changes around. Do you think it would be alright? How about comparison of the two characters?
  3. So I have started to think about what I would like to do for my Extended Essay, we have to give in our ideas in around a weeks time. Just need some help refining my ideas, any tips would be appreciated! How has the Volkswagen Diesel Emission Scandal impacted the brand image of Volkswagen (Related to Business Management) Comparing the speeches of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump, and how the language impacted the election results (English Language and Literature) How can war be justified (History) Thanks in advance!
  4. For my Business Management EE, I have about 19 secondary sources and 1 primary source. However, many things my primary source said, weren't corroborated by any secondary sources. My secondary sources were mostly used to justify solutions and whatnot. My teachers told me that I should have a mix of primary and secondary sources that state the same thing, but I can't find any secondary sources talking about the issues I discussed about the company I chose. My EE supervisor told me this wasn't a problem, but here we are. Could this issue cause me to fail the EE?
  5. Hi guys, I'm in my 1st year of DP and our EE coordinator told us to start writing up a proposal for our EE. Now I have a slight dilemma with my subject choices: I really want to do either History or Visual Arts, however, there is an issue with both of them. History: I want to pursue a career in History and I was going to take it up as an IB subject but since we do not have a DP History teacher, I did not - would it be wise to do an EE in a subject that it is not a subject of mine and has a MYP supervisor? I would like to add, though, that I really do like History. Visual Arts: I'd like to look into art history but again we do not have a DP V.A teacher therefore it is not one of my IB subjects - would it be wise to do an EE for the same reason above? Furthermore, the MYP teacher that is available is not really adept in the English language and I feel that would affect my grade. As a backup, I have English literature, however, it's not really my favourite subject... All the same, I'd really appreciate some feedback! Thanks again
  6. Ok so I originally declared my subject as history because it definitely makes sense to me to declare it history, but now one of my teacher's is saying that my ee is on the border of history and cultural and social anthropology, and i really don't want to go through the whole expensive process of changing my subject for $200 USD when I would still have to rewrite my EE whether i change the topic or not. My RQ is: To what extent did European colonization impact the traditional roles of Indigenous women of Canada Basically I said that with European colonization, Indigenous society shifted from a matriarchal society to a patriarchal society which significantly degraded women. However, I agree with my teachers saying that my essay was too narrative without a strong thesis. My outline included: - pre-colonial customs -European perceptions -Implementation of Change: missionaries and political influence After some brainstorming, I changed my RQ to To what extent can the success of European colonization of Canada be attributed to the diminishing authority of Indigenous women? My outline would follow the same previous format but with a stronger focus on cause and effect, so like religious, political, social, and economic factors which contributed to European colonization. However, my timeframe is from 1632-1876; is this timeframe too broad? The bulk of my information is from 1850-76 for government legislation, but I thought it was really important to include missionaries which were prominent in the 1600s. Overall, is this change enough for my subject to be history? I still have to add historiography and more info.
  7. Hey. This is my first time posting, so hopefully someone can help me out here. I've just got my Extended Essay proposal back from my supervisor, and she flat out rejected it and said that I need to get something else to write about. The topic of my essay is "To what extent did aviation affect the outcome of WW2?". I would like to write about something regarding aviation and/or the second world war, but there is a lot of pre-existing research on the topic, so it's difficult to find something original to do and I also need to find something that presents an argument, which is a bit difficult because history is pretty straight-forward (to me at least). Can someone help me find something interesting to write about and make suggestions as to how to narrow down my research question and make it argumentative? Thanks in advance, --A Drooling Failure
  8. Hello. I am doing my extended essay in English (A1) Language and Literature HL, and chose to write an exploration of "The Scarlet Letter" and "The Handmaid's Tale". Nevertheless, I am worried about my research question, I think it is maybe too simple or not focused enough on the literary analysis that the IB wants? I would really appreciate help or any comments on my research question; "To what extent does the theme of oppression in Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The Scarlet Letter” allow for the development of autonomous and tenacious female protagonists?"

  10. Hi all, I'm deciding whether or not I should do my EE on "1984" and "The Handmaid's Tale". My topic will be focusing on the representation of female sexuality in the two books but I'm a bit worried that I won't get a good grade because these books are so overused. Can someone please give me some suggestions?
  11. I am doing a language B EE. I know that we can use a movie as "cultural artifact" for category 2(b). However, I am analyzing it from more of a literature point of view. The EE book says: "Category 3: An analysis of a literary type, based on a specific work of literature exclusively written in the target language?" So, Does a movie fit in category 3? Thanks.
  12. Hello all, I am still stuck at choosing my topic for my Extended Essay for English. I have chosen a book called 'Purple Hibiscus'. If anyone has any idea about what topic I can talk about and the things that I can explore more about it, please help me. Thank you so much
  13. Hi, I really need some help with creating my EE topic in Biology, I have come up with an idea " How the ph of water affects cell division in plants". This is just an idea, but I am not sure if using plants is ethical and if the idea is original. I really need help, and I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
  14. So I need some help with my research question for my EE. I have string of ideas, but I do not know where to focus my essay. Just an quick non-spoiler overview of my EE ideas: Stephen King's The Shining (1977) Movie adaptation of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick (1980) Second-Wave feminist movement was from 1960s to 1980s, so both works were released during a huge feminist movement. Wendy Torrance is not a typical horror genre female victim. She fights for herself and survives in the end. Stephen King expressed his criticism towards the poor portrayal of Wendy in the movie, saying that she is the most "misogynistic" female character on screen. Also, said that he disliked the movie adaptation, since it seemed a little sexist. Any ideas for a research question? By the way, NO one can copy my EE!!!! I am warning you. By posting this I have receipts, that the idea of examining feminist theme portrayed in SK's The Shining was originated by ME.
  15. Hi all, I've chosen to investigate Chlorella in my extended essay and its growth factors. I noticed that my topic already had many prior research papers on it. It seems that it would make my research somewhat less original. Would I penalized for something like that? Its already too late to start finding a new RQ because my school need the first reflection to be locked in soon.
  16. Hey everyone! So I'm doing my Extended essay on the treatment of the theme of religion in things fall apart and The River Between(comparative analysis). The guide that the essays should advance an argument by consulting various sources apart from the book but since I'm mainly looking at the style in which various aspects of religion have been presented I don't know how to advance an argument. Any ideas? Ps: I'd love for someone to go through my extended essay and critique it. If interested please message me. Thank you!
  17. Long story short, I did a bio extended essay, messed up the experiment, instead of isolated colonies I got a single weird blob. No data collected. Failed the experiment. Am I allowed to use external data to support my arguments?
  18. I plan to do my Extended Essay on Economics, specifically price discrimination. Please share your thoughts on my Research Question and suggest how I can make it better.RQ : To what extent does the price discrimination that exists in the Cafes in Bukit Jelutong affects the consumer’s demand?I’ve noticed that the local Cafes where I live in, has a common practice of price discrimination for either students through student discounts or happy hours where any meals bought at a specific time is offered at a lower price. Being someone who enjoys these price discrimination, it has made me wonder how effective it actually is. Do these cafes actually experience higher customer traffic when such price discrimination is implemented? I plan to test this through analyzing whether the price discrimination leads to higher demand of the good.
  19. I have around 3 weeks until I need to turn in my final draft of my extended essay, and I am just now starting. I know I shouldn't have procrastinated, but I did and now I have to deal with the consequences. Anyways, I know my topic will be on Dirty Realism (a style of writing that depicts the more mundane aspects of ordinary life), and I know that I will include writers like Richard Wright and Tobias Wolff in my essay. Now what I don't know is my research question. I have two in mind: 1. How does Richard Wright and Tobias Wolff use Dirty Realism in their works? 2. What is the role of Dirty Realism in Richard Wright and Tobias Wolff's works? Are either of these any good? And if not, what changes should I make to these questions?
  20. Hi, I'm planning to write my EE on the book "Spies" by Michael Frayn as a Category one. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any research questions for it or possibly suggest any books to compare it to. Books in the genre of growing up or coming of age would be appreciated. PLEASE, Thank you. :')
  21. Hi all, i am just finishing off my business and management EE, and I was wondering if it was appropriate to add images into the EE rather than going into depth explaining a physical description of products, so I have more words to analyse. Any advice welcome!
  22. Hi everyone, i am scary close to the deadline of my EE, and my supervisor says my EE is too descriptive. Does anyone have experience with a business and management EE that can help me with the structure and type of analysis required?
  23. I started writing my EE for the French B topic field. It is about French, written in English. Myself, my supervisor and even the IB coordinator do not know if this is acceptable, so a yes or no answer as to whether I can do this or not is appreciated from someone who has done this or knows more about restrictions around second language (language B) Extended Essays, thanks.
  24. Hey everyone, I submitted my EE, but then realized that I forgot one in-text citation. I have the citation in my works cited though. Can I change it somehow? If not, will I not receive my IB diploma for that? Thanks in advance.
