Wow, I haven't been on this site since I started MYP. It's great to be back here, this time as an IB student!! So we were recently introduced to our Global Politics IA (Personal Engagement Activity), and I'm semi-lost as this is a newly offered course at my school and no one's ever taught it before. My teacher isn't being that helpful in terms of the expectations and all, but I have a broad idea of what I need to do. We're expected to have proposals ready in the next couple of week and present them to our teacher for approval. As this is a relatively new course offered by the IB itself, there aren't that many resources available for help or inspiration. I feel as though I might be stumbling around in the dark right now- you can imagine the feeling. Does anyone have any experience with the PEA? Are there any suggestions you might have in terms of topics, or topics to avoid? Any advice or past experiences would be SO helpful!!
I've seen so many people online suggesting that Andrew Heywood's global politics book is the best global politics book available but ever since I've started using it I've discovered that it goes beyond what is covered in the course and does not contain some parts of the course but since many people have suggested it, there must be a problem with the way I refer to it when I'm studying. Any tips on how I could utilise it more effectively?
