  1. Does anyone know the creators and origins of these two cartoons about Mao's 'Hundred Flowers' Campaign? I can't find any websites that have them but that also mention the name of the cartoonists and when they were created.
  2. I’m a little conflicted about choosing which subjects to take as higher levels. My school forces us to take English and History HL, so I basically only get the option of one other HL. That will probably be Chem, but I’m also considering Math HL. Because of my school’s requirements I’ve been considering taking 4 HLs since I hesr that colleges don’t often look at SL classes. I’m a straight A student, but I struggle with time management a lot, and I realize the commitment I’d need to make. Not sure if I’m making any sense here, I’d just appreciate some advice on deciding, maybe some perspective from people taking/who have taken 4 HLs? Thanks!
  3. This is a little diagram I made to illustrate the complex system of foreign policies and interests after the Berlin Conference of 1878-9, since it would have been nearly impossible to follow the discussion without it. I hope it helps someone else!

  5. Hi! Yesterday I found out that my supervisor had gone on vacation, leaving me without any guidance until the middle of August. I wasn't done with my research question (I have myself to blame really) and now can't afford loosing two more weeks withour any reasarch on the specific question. I've come up with 3 research questions concerning the Rwandan genocide (history), I would be very grateful if you could help me. Can I rephrase anything to make it better? Which one do you consider the best option for an EE? Is any of these questions even doable? 1.To what extent was the Rwandan genocide a result of a state plan made by the authorities? 2.To what extent did the propaganda spread by the media in Rwanda lead to the genocide? /Why was the media propaganda before the Rwandan genocide so effective? 3.To what extent was the Rwandan genocide a result of the society build up by the German and Belgian colonization? Thank you in advance!!!!
  6. Do you think this topic will work? This is my History HL IA for the new syllabus. To what extent does the interpretation of Japanese constitution article 9 affected the revision of the US-Japan Security Treaty in 1960? If this doesnt work, do you have any suggested topic in this field?
  7. Hi everyone, I wanted an opinion outside my school about the validity of my research question. I initially wanted to go with "To what extent were women in the US allowed to aid the army during World War II?" as my research question but due to no sources whatsoever I came to the conclusion that I should change it and I came up with "To what extent was Stalin’s five year plan successful during 1928 to 1932?". Can I use this research question? (I take history HL)
  8. Hey guys, I am starting my IB DP in a week. My current subject combination is: Economics HL History HL Math HL Chem SL Lang/Lit SL French B SL I really like history and want to make a career out of it, with the research that I've done, I really want to be an archaeologist. My backup option as of now is a lawyer if not an archaeologist. Could anyone give me tips for History HL? I am open to changing my subjects, it would be helpful if any of you guys could suggest some career paths that might interest me.
  9. Hi there, I'm new and I'll be starting my IB next year. I'm super excited, my only problem is that I can't decide on my subjects. I originally planned to take Ma SL, Eng SL, Spa B SL, German HL, Bio HL and History HL. But than everybody I asked told me how terribly hard History HL was going to be. Since then I considered either substituting History HL with Economics HL (although I haven't really done Eco yet it seems very useful to me) or taking Spanish HL and History SL. It's kind of a decision between reason and passion lol So, basically, my questions are: - Is History HL as terrible as everybody says and will it prevent me from scoring at least 39 points (my goal)? - How hard is Spanish B HL? Do I have to be fluent for doing well in the exam? - Would you recommend Economics HL over History HL? Is it actually going to be more useful in the future? Oh and by the way, I've got no clue what I want to study after school... so I can't base it on that either... I am aware that this is probably one of a thousand questions about this topic but I thought I'd have a try anyway. Looking forward to any answers... thanks a lot in advance!!!
  10. Hey guys, I'm facing a little problem with my History's Internal Assessment. I just started the Diploma approx. 2 months ago and I think now it's the best moment to know some opinions about it. My topic is: The Influence of J. Rockefeller's Legacy in the Great Depression My investigation question is: To what extent was J. Rockefeller's legacy important at facing the United States economical redevelopment after the Great Depression to the New Deal's beginning? In this regard, what do you think? What shall I do to improve it? Please! make any suggestion or even criticize it haha... I really want to know your opinion. Thanks!
  11. Hi y'all, I was wondering whether this would be a sufficiently narrowed down IA focus question for my History higher level IA: To what extent did American intervention in the Afghan war against the Soviet Union lead to the development of the terrorist group Al-Qaeda? Please let me know your thoughts on this. What are some changes I could make to make this a stronger question? Thanks!!
  12. Hey all, I was thinking of doing my history IA on how cold war gave birth to modern terrorism (especially groups such as the Taliban). I don't know how good a topic this is and I would love to have your suggestions. Thanks!!
  13. Hi! I'm starting my final year of IB and I was wondering if you guys had any tips about notes or how to prepare for the exams at the end of the year...
  14. Hi, I just had my paper 3 but i think i misread a question i answered. I obviously can't tell the question yet but here is something similar: How did (name) do something between 2040-2050? In class we never did anything before 2050 so i assumed it would be what we had learned. Will this be a big problem and will I fail my paper 3 because of this? help please im desperate
  15. How was it for you guys? I am TZ2 and I chose propaganda topic and how did the WW2 influanced the society. It was better than I thought.
  16. So I've recently started my IA, and I was just wondering how many sources is a "good amount" of sources to have for this? Hope it's not too much of a dumb question! Thanks
  17. Essay on changes imposed by Stalin after 1929. Level 6
  18. Hi guys, so i have already decided on writing a History Extended Essay. Since I live in Asia, specifically South East Asia, i have decided to focus on ASEAN and the Third IndoChina conflict (the one between Cambodia and Vietnam) My topic question is 'To what extent was ASEAN responsible in the withdrawal of Vietnamese troops from Cambodia/Kampuchea in 1991?To what extent was ASEAN responsible in the withdrawal of Vietnamese troops from Cambodia/Kampuchea in 1991?' I have split the essay into sections/paragraphs but i am finding it difficult to write the introduction & start my essay. Some tips or maybe an example would be great Thank you!
  19. I've been looking at the HL Markscheme for History and I notice that the easiest additional element to incorporate in an essay would be to "show a high level of conceptual ability." Alright, now may I ask you all dearly, what is this conceptual ability? Can I get some examples? My teacher tells me that I ought to think in frameworks but I don't really understand what he means. My exams are in May 2015 and we're going to start doing daily essays in two months or so and I am scared that I will not do so well because I know all my facts but when the time comes understanding the criteria I think will get me closer to higher mark boundaries, I tend to get 14/20 for my essays but I want to aim higher! I really want a 7 for this!
  20. Hi! I recently posted about my History IA Topic (about a month ago) and since then have decided to change topics, it's now "To what extent was the Kornilov Affair responsible for the decline of the Provisional Government?" I don't know if it's too broad, whether I should change it to the "decline in support" perhaps? And I'm having a difficult time finding primary sources... I've only found 1 that's completely relevant and another is on figures of membership of the Bolsheviks in June v. in September. Idk where to find anything that's useful/related... This whole history IA is so annoying Any help at all is extremely appreciated!!
  21. Hi! So I have started researching for my History IA and have to come up with a topic for the Wednesday that's coming up. So far I have a title, but am unsure about whether it will be doable/if it's much too broad? The question that I'm working with now is "To what extent was the American population's exposure to media responsible for the ending of the Vietnam War?" I did the Vietnam War last year for my IGCSEs, so I have some knowledge of it already. My teacher has said that although it is a broad topic, if I focus on a very specific aspect/area it would be okay, it's just the problem of finding sources for this topic for me, I think. I'm looking around for sources this remaining day of the weekend, but if I can't find anything I'll just switch topic to Russia as that is what we have been doing so far in the year (e.g. Alexander II, III, Nicholas II, 1905, 1917 Revolutions) Any opinions/advice is highly appreciated!!
  22. Hello everyone, I'm doing my EE in History, and my topic is Catherine the Great. My research question is the following: "What personal, political and artistic achievements have helped Catherine of Russian gain the title of "the Great"?" So my EE final draft is due on tuesday. I've finished it (still need to work a little bit on it for it to be absolutely perfect) and I couldn't help but wonder... is my research question to broad? I really want to get bonus points, and I would absolutely HATE to lose points because of my research question. I honestly wouldn't mind rewriting some parts of it... Because when you honestly think about it, my essay is kind of a biography of Catherine's life, even though there are historical analysis... Do you recommend me to focus more on one aspect of her life? Like the coup d'etat, or something like "In what ways did Catherine the Great win her country's admiration before her coup d'etat?" Please answer ASAP and give me your honest opinion!! Love, Jessy
  23. I have to "analyze the causes and effects of the 1905 revolution". Does anyone who does history HL know how I should go about this? Do they just expect me to analyze the significance of each event that caused/effected the revolution? Or..? I'm pretty confused, so help of any kind would be appreciated!! Thanks
  24. Hello all! So I am having to decide on which IB subjects I would like to take at the higher level. I have decided on Eng. HL, Bio HL and am currently debating whether I should take History HL or French HL.... See, I received good marks in both history and french last year (7 and 6 respectively), but I don't know which one I will score better on during final IB exams.... I love writing essays in history but the sheer AMOUNT of stuff to go through for history HL is intimidating to me....I've heard a lot of horror stories about how hard the history HL exam can be.... And as for French, I love learning languages (yah, I'm a dork), but I am not as fluent as I would like to be. The grammar stuff I think I have a handle on... but I would need to work hard to improve my speaking skills and vocab.... because they mark French HL quite harshly right..? But then again, History HL will require a lot of work as well..... I am just so confused. My teachers tell me that I should do whatever I think is best, but I really do like both subjects and simply can't decide. So ultimately, at this point in time, the deciding factor(s) will be: what can I score better on? Which can get be better marks? Which one will be easier?? So I want your opinions... which subject would be easier to take? Which one do you think I should take? any help would be appreciated because I really want (and need!!) help deciding.................
