  1. 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
  2. I am including an appendix of a map of the area I am discussing in my historical investigation. Additionally, I am considering putting in a table of data here. The problem is that I'm not quite sure how to cite these properly. My plan was to put them after the bibliography and then in the paper, when I have in-text citations in footnotes, I put next to them, "(See Appendix A/B)". Is this the proper way? Or should I put the footnote directly next to the appendices even though the appendix comes after the bibliography? Thank you!
  3. Hi guys! I'm trying to write my EE in history and my research question is due next week. I know I want to write my EE about the Italian Mafia, but I don't know how to word a research question. A research question I was thinking about was: "How did the Italian Mafia influence West Virginia Primary in May 1960, effectively winning JFK the Democratic Primary?" I'm not sure if it's good enough though. How can I improve this RQ? Thanks!
  4. Hello IB-community! I am currently in high school and need to choose my IB subjects very soon. As the title suggests, I would be very thankful if some of you would be interested in answering my question. I am currently in a rough spot mental health wise, in the way that I am unable to tolerate any excessive focus on emotionally draining subjects, due to the fact that I was diagnosed as a highly sensitive person and struggle with depressive episodes. Therefore I am hesitant as to wether choose IB, history SL or ITGS SL. Because last year I did not enjoy history at all, it was very war focused and left me "emotionally triggered" many times. I struggle because its not the history that gets me, I actually liked it for most of my life, its just all the extra in depth-detail about wars etc. that I can't handle, Then I am torn between ITGS, because I don't know what to anticipate. I am not into technology or computers very much, but it seems like a relatively relaxed subject that wouldn't get me into trouble emotionally straight away, as I really enjoy sociology too. Many thanks for your suggestions Kind regards, Saoirse
  5. I'm in history HL in a very small class with a very under-qualified teacher, and if I'm honest, I don't trust his judgement on my IA topic. The topic I proposed was: "To what extent did the Battle of Stalingrad force Hitler out of Russia?". I've also been considering similar topics such as "How impactful was the outcome of the Battle of Stalingrad on Germany?" I am really interested in this topic (and the Wehrmacht's time in the USSR in general) but I don't know if this is too specific, not specific enough, overdone, or even viable as an IA topic. He sort of just said "yeah okay" without giving any criticism or really any comments with substance. Would really like some feedback ASAP, thanks!
  6. So I have been in the IB Program since kindergarten and now I am in 9th grade at the IB High School and they kick people out but I have seen the seniors class of 2018 most of them have and hair grades below an 80 in Mississippi you must maintain in 80 or above in IB. I have a 71 average in Spanish and a 57 average in geometry but I haven't 80 in above and all of my six classes. Im not sure if i will pass this semester. They have to give probation letters before they kick you out. They always said 2nd term they give letter amd they kick you out come Christmas. But once a again their are seniors thah have failed more than 1 IB class since their High school IB career. But ny school does kick people out. Can anyone explain is it selective?
  7. I can see benefits for each side, in that if it's something people are familiar with they'll have better background knowledge. However, if it's something obscure, I'm less likely to get an expert who knows what a perfect paper about that topic looks like. Any advice?
  8. HL: Physics, Literature, Global Politics SL: Math, French Abinitio, (either Geo or History) idk whether i should do history or geo, i have no idea what i want to do in the future. Naturally i prefer History over Geo. If i take Geo im guaranteed a 6-7 in my school. but if i take History im guaranteed a 4-6. which should i take?
  9. My Global Politics Teacher is fairly new at teaching the subject, and he has a tendency to teach us about a lot of history, as well as geography (as that's what he's used to). I understand that it's important to connect the other social sciences to understand GP, but he literally spends half of our time in class holding lectures about e.g the Peace of Westphalia and enlightenment thinkers, as well as giving us Seterra quizzes on all the countries of the world. We rarely discuss the content in the IB textbook. Is this okay or should I try and bring it up with a teacher?
  10. I've been thinking about what I want to do my extended essay on, and I've decided to do history. When I was looking for a topic, I found one that I find really interesting, which is the Wars of the Roses. I'm also a huge fan of A Song of Ice and Fire and A Game of Thrones, so I was wondering if I could intertwine those since the story for A Song of Ice and Fire is partially based on the Wars of the Roses. This is the question I came up with so far: How historically accurate is the depiction of the Wars of the Roses in the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire"? I'm worried that this is too broad because I'd like to talk about events that take place about over a century or that it will turn into just a narrative essay. I also don't know how to research for this very well. I really like the topic and would love to investigate it further, but I also want to pick a good topic that will get me a good grade. Is this doable? How should I approach this?
  11. Hey, My RQ is How significant was religion as a factor in the formation of the Taliban. My supervisor isn't helpful at all. I wrote 3500 words and she said that it's too narrative and I completely agree with that. I can't find helpful primary and secondary sources. How do I make my EE more analytical? Should I change my topic completely?
  12. Hi! I am in grade 11 full IB I am still in the process of choosing a topic for my history extended essay. I have come up with several tentative topics, and a few research questions. 1. Chinese Cultural Revolution 2. Armenian Genocide - To what extent does the Armenian Genocide affect modern Turkish-Armenian relations? >> I feel like this one may be too obvious. Does 'Turkish-Armenian relations' need to be narrowed down? 3. French Revolution - To what extent did the French Revolution improve French society? >> I feel like this one may be too simple? 'Society' may change 4. Civil Rights Movement - To what extent is American racism and racial segregation during the American Civil Rights Movement connected to Western colonization of the world during the same time period? >> Although this one I think has the most potential/detail, I do think that it may need to be edited or reworded For all of the topics, I have not done very much preliminary research (I know I should). Which one do you think has the most potential? Thank you!!!!
  13. Im currently thinking about doing the bombing of Hiroshima but I think that it is too common so im trying to think of a new topic
  14. I am currently developing my IA topic and research question, and I would love feedback on my topic in terms of appropriateness and fitting criteria. I am currently taking IB History of the Americas HL. My topic is the Smog of Donora 1948 in the United States and its effects on American and global environmental policy. My research question is: To what extent did The Smog of Donora 1948 lead to clean air acts in the United States and further environmental policy globally? Any feedback is appreciated!!
  15. Hi guys! I'm currently writing my IA about the extent to which the Boxer Rebellion could be attributed to the fall of the Qing Dynasty, and I'm struggling to find secondary sources which talk about the historical implications of the Boxer Rebellion. Most books which I've come across only seem to discuss the military tactics and strategies used by the Western powers. Do you guys know of any resources which could lead me in the right direction? Thanks!
  16. Does anyone know how many years can be used in a history EE?? I am currently looking at events that occurred in the 16th century and I will properly narrow the time span down later, but I am not sure what the max. amount of years can be??
  17. 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??
  18. So I am currently starting the history extended essay and I am wondering what type of format that I should use?? I was thinking of using APA, but I was wondering what others are using for their history extended essays?
  19. Hey Guys, I haven't seen any news about the new IB History curriculum that started in the May session 2017. Was wondering if it was any different from previous history courses, and what advice any post-IB students would give to those sitting History in November!! Cheers
  20. Hey everyone, So I have started my research for my EE and I know what my topic is, it is the Sputnik Crisis, however, I am not sure about my exact RQ yet. Could you pls help? I would either want: how did the sputnik launch affect american confidence? or to what extent was the Sputnik an enduring sign of crisis in american confidence? Are these good, do u think? Thanks in advance, Eszter
  21. 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???
  22. How long do you think is too long for a time period for a history EE? Currently mine is 15 years but I just realised I included stuff from many years before that period. Does this mean I have to change the entire time span and make it broader even if I just have 1 event that was earlier compared to the rest?
  23. So I'm going to be starting in the IB next year and I have to either choose between History HL or Economics HL OR take one as HL and the other as SL, but then I'd have to have 7 subjects and I'm not sure if I'll manage. I also want to be a diplomat or go into politics or IR or law after IB. These are the subjects I've chosen so far: English A HL Norwegian A SL Math SL Biology Visual Arts HL plzz help
  24. Hey, so I'm in Pre-IB and we have our HI due soon. My topic is "How were women of Canada affected by WW1?". Do you think this is a good topic that I can get a lot of information on? Or has anyone here something similar and have any information that might be useful? And what are some tips for writing this HI? Thanks
  25. Hello, I've had quite a few problems with narrowing down my History HL IA question on the Tiananmen Square protest and the Singing Revolution. This is what I've got as of now; "How did the public views of communism and the communist rule influence the intentions behind the Tiananmen Square protest compared to the Singing Revolution?". I want it to be focused on the fact that in China they mourned a communist leader whilst in the Balkan states they were rebelling against the communist rule but as said my research question is a bit too big so a bit of help would really be appreciated:) cheers!
