  1. Guys, I was practicing the answer to the classical question of the causes that led to the outbreak of WW1 (examine the role of colonialism rivalry that led to the outbreak of WW1), and lacked some specific examples of historians from each current (revisionist, marxist, and those who blame the politicians and ministers for incompetence). The historiography only includes historians, right? We cannot include, for example, Lenin or Lloyd George? My teacher didn't really develop this and I am essentially for the first time looking at this to answer questions in History. Could you help me out in explaining how I can use historiography to achieve top marks in my essays, and give me specific details of historians who defend revisionism, marxism (communism), the blame to politicians and many other currents you find important to develop? Grateful, Richard
  2. Helloo As a topic for my History SL IA, I was thinking about this one: To what extent can Romanian communism (1947-1989) be explained through literature? I am Romanian, so that's why I thought it would be a chance for me to research my country better. Anyway, I have doubts in the actual formulating of the question. Some suggestions? (especially, if anyone did an IA which combines also literature) Thank you
  3. During my Global Politics class I began contemplating about why we have the "Minority Vote". Basically what I'm thinking is that : We worked so hard to remove segregation from Society, but yet we reinstall it in our political system? Was it ever removed from our political system? Why is the "Minority", generally the African-American population and doesn't the Asian, Hispanic, Native American, etc.? I think back to when my mom had all these stock exchange shows and news channels constantly being playing on our TV, around the time of the last Presidential Election (Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton, in case someone is reading this in the distant future, and if you are, hi), and the people on the show kept saying "The Minority Vote", as though the people they're talking about are foreigners who don't understand anything. I talked about the idea with some of the people in my Global Politics class, and got some interesting answers. Some said that its because they're in the Black Community with Black Culture, but just because they have a different culture doesn't mean they're not Americans. I proposed the idea to my Global Politics teacher for my HL Extension, but after discussing it, we both agreed that its too subjective and wouldn't fit within the 10 minute time limit. The concept of questioning this felt more like a ToK topic than a Global Politics one, so that's why I'm posting it here. This is more of a United States thing, but I'd love to hear the opinions of others on this.
  4. So I have to come up with a RQ in two weeks, and I've thought of a topic and talked to my supervisor about it, but he said it sounds to boring..? I wanted to focus on the effects of Japanese colonialism in Korea and my RQ is somewhere along the lines of: "To what extent did the Japanese invasion help modernize Korea?" Another topic I was thinking of is the different perspective (Japanese and Korean) on the issue of comfort women during WWII. Which one do you think would be more suitable for my EE? Please help
  5. What is a better subject to choose for the Extended Essay if I thinking of applying to law? Unfortunately, I don't have History HL. Economics HL English B HL Geography HL Russian A
  6. Hi, I am a current D1 student, and it is the middle of the year. I have defiantly decided to do law in the future. Do you think I should switch from Geography HL to History HL or it is too late? My subjects now are Geography HL Economics HL English B HL ESS SL (maybe i need to switch to Biology SL?) Maths SL
  7. So I am starting the process of choosing an IA question and I am having some difficulties. Initially I wanted to write something about the holocaust but upon further research it seems to be an overdone topic. I decided to look into other possible WWII/post WWII topics but I am having trouble finding a topic. I am thinking maybe something on Camp X (Canadian spy camp) or post war Berlin ie. differences in east and west Berlin. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  8. So i have to choose my extended essay topic in a few days and i have a "few" areas of history which i believe i would like to do the essay in. I just have no idea about what form the questions could take regarding these areasss and so i ask for your help to suggest questions for them? Also if you have any critiques regarding these areas, i would appreciate any advice. 1) Medicis - Italian Renaissance 2) Racism in 1920s America 3) Henry VIII's reign 4) French Revolution 5) The tudors... (this is very broad but i'm generally open to any questions with regards to this time period?) 6) Hitler and the Nazi Reign 7) Winston Churchill
  9. Hey guys, I have been kinda exasperated and anxious with my History HL exam now in may: more than being a very demanding subject, it has a less padronised program and so can be considered to be harder to get top marks. Don't wanna seem kinda sponger but if you could give a few tips, talk about your situation with the subject, discuss the subject itself and, if you may, attach some notes or practicing answers to past papers (this was actually something not only I but also more people could benefit from, because for every subject you must have an effective writing, which enables you to get top marks). To get ambitious grades in this rigorous subject, we must intertwine knowledge with practice (until the exams, we can get both, so I would like to ask you, who has had good answers/methodology that would like to share with us). I have studied the following modules: WW1, Tsarist Russia, Weimar Republic, single party states such as Hitler's Germany and Stalin's Russia, WW2, League of Nations, Cold War with Vietnam, Korea, Cuba all of that (also including the impact of the UN in Cold War, the relation between China and the USA and Russia and China), the Spanish Civil War, Algerian War and Falkland War. Cheers, Richard
  10. I'm currently in PreIB and we are just about to turn in our applications for which subjects we want to take. so far this is what I've decided on: Swedish A HL English B HL Psych/History HL Math SL ESS SL Psych/History SL so my only kind of struggle right now is if i should take history or psychology at higher level. Both courses are challenging and people keep giving different reviews and i don't know what to choose. The psych teacher at my school says that if he was a student he wouldn't choose HL psych and in history is so many dates to keep track of. I do want to do both courses I just don't know which one i should take at HL. Which course is harder and which one is less challenging? How do the final exams in each subject differ? I'm desperate for help.

  13. So I'm in my second semester of my preparation year and I now have to decide what subjects I want. I want to study medicine so therefore I have decided to study both chem and bio HL, I still need to decide what group 3 subject I want and at what level. I can pick from history, phsycology and economics all at both SL and HL, which one would you recommend?
  14. How do you typically answer a "to what extent.." research question in order to form a thesis in history? My research question is "To what extend did the Suez Crisis impact British influence in Egypt". Thanks!
  15. 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?
  16. Hi there, I'll be starting the IB pretty soon and would like a little heads up on my subject combination. So far, I have decided on: Chemistry HL Mathematics HL Economics HL Lang and Lit SL Chinese B SL History SL I would like to take computer science as a degree in a uni but am relatively unsure in swapping out chemistry for computer science because it's something I haven't really done before and chemistry is pretty much of a core science. After some thorough searching, most courses I'm going after in university level don't really require chemistry but it might still be a bonus? I dunno. And would History SL be ok or should I swap it out for Physics SL? I think physics would be much more related to my preferred course of study but I do love history (that's why I put it in). I heard from someone that mugging for history SL is pretty much the same as mugging for history HL. Is that true? Thanks for reading through all these!
  17. So I'm getting into the nitty gritty bit of IB - all the IAs are due in the next two weeks or so - and I haven't done much yet. I just started and completed my TOK Essay, Spanish HL IA, and History HL IA in the last two days so now I'm starting on the EE and the English IA. I haven't firmly decided on a topic yet but I was thinking something along the lines of "to what extent did Islamic influences on Spain lead to the superiority of the Spanish Empire in the 16th century?" Is this a good topic to go with? Or will it be too difficult to find primary sources? Or do we even need primary sources for the history EE? Also, what is the format for the History EE? Is it like the IA? Or do we have more freedom? I've looked at various examples but they're all drastically different. I haven't received any advice from my school on how to go about doing this - IB is kinda inefficient, poorly-run, confusing and messy here - so I have no idea what I'm doing at any given time. Any advice whatsoever would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  18. Hey I am stuggling with my history paper. Can you tell me if question do you: How and to what extend Russian minority enriched and influenced cultural development of city of Lodz during 19th and beginning of 20th century? or To what Russian minority in Lodz contributed to the development of the city in 19th and 20th century? are good topic for IA because I am not sure ?
  19. Hello, I have currently made some adjustments to my research question for the Extended Essay. It is about Islamic history in the Middle East -- "To what extent today commemoration of the day of Ashura is justified?" In the essay, I evaluated different approaches to the battle of Karbala and the purpose of Hussain (a protagonist of the battle) when he did not pay homage to the new ruler Yazid. I know this is a very unfamous battle, yet people know about the self-flagellation in different Muslim countries, which is related to my topic. Do I need to specify the question?
  20. Hi! This is for the new 2017 syllabus IA (just a heads-up, though I'm pretty sure it doesn't change the RQ format). I've already done part 1/3 of the IA (the source identification and evaluation part), so while I'd appreciate phrasing and diction help, I'm sticking with this topic. I had already changed from 1870s US reconstruction policies to WWI US neutrality, and then from that to this. I have a penchant for Canadian history, which we study as much as US history in our Americas HL topic, so here it is: How was Prime Minister Borden’s leadership responsible for deepening the rift between French-Canadian and Anglo-Canadian national identity from 1911 to 1920? Please let me know if you think I should change anything -- like narrow down the time period, for instance. I chose 1911 to 1920 because the years span Borden's two terms and include the French-Canadian disdain for the early Naval Aid Bill, the Manitoba/Ontario bilingualism affair in trying to eradicate instruction in the French language, and the 1917-1918 Conscription crisis. Thanks!
  21. Hi, My current research question is: To what extent were the social and political British imperialistic influences in China in the 1900’s a responsible factor for the collapse of the Qing Empire? In my essay I want to analyze the social and political influences the British had on China and how those were a responsible factor for the collapse of the qing empire near the end of the imperialistic era. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on both my topic and on how to improve my research question.
  22. Hello! I'm studying Business and Management HL right now and it seems pretty hard to me, even though I do ALL the homework, read ALL the assigned pages! I am so afraid right now that I won't be able to pass the exam, cuz I couldn't memorize the therminology and all the aspects of this subject. I'm thinking of switching to History HL, but I'm not sure if it will make my life easier. And I'm studying on IB diploma 1 for 4 months already. So I would need to catch up a lot if I switch. Has anyone experienced it? Any advices? Which subject is easier to pass at the end?

    I'm supposed to finish my history IA rough draft tonight. I want to do it on the Rwandan genocide but I cannot come up with a specific question. So far I have come up with "What were the leading events to the Rwandan genocide".
  24. Hello! I am currently in my first year of IB and wanted to switch from Psychology to History HL. My other subjects are - Economics HL, English HL, Math SL, Hindi SL and Biology SL. Is History considered to be more "academic" than psychology and thus, preferred by colleges? Also is it comparatively tougher to score a 7 in History? Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  25. Hey everyone! I have a unique idea for my history IA... What does everyone think? I just want to validate it To what extent is Hamilton: An American Musical historically accurate in its account of Alexander Hamilton’s actions during the American Revolution?
