  1. I'm trying to develop a good research question for my History IA that involves technology during WW2, like the atomic bomb and radar. I have considered questions like "How did WW2 influence developments in science" and "To what extent was technology during WW2 affected by the war", but these seem very general and difficult to research. Any advice is appreciated! Thanks..
  2. 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. :')
  3. Hello everyone, When writing about a study found on the internet, is it fine if it is pretty similar to what i wrote or i have to completely change it into my own words. Please answer if you know! Thank you
  4. First of all, hello! I've been lurking on this site for years but have finally decided to create an account.... Anyway, I've just started on my EE and my title/topic has been approved. I tried writing a 1K word draft for my supervisor to check so I'll know if I'm on the right track, and they told me that it'd be better if I rewrote the entire thing due to various reasons, two of which were: 1) EE is, of course, a research paper first and foremost. My supervisor said that the draft sounded too much like a book review. 2) Basic vocab and grammar (I'll work on this). In any case, the most trouble I'm having is with the way I'm writing the essay. My topic is on how experiencing different religious beliefs (and, in turn, the different characters in the book) helps shape the main character's character development. Of course quotes + basic analysis are necessary, especially about how each religion affects the character, but other than that I'm confused on what to write about......any advice on how I should proceed with the "research" part of the essay? Thanks in advance! (If anyone ever replies to this.)
  5. I am writing an English EE on the Amazon Warriors, of Greek mythology, and the Valkyries, of Norse mythology, and the strength they exhibit through their battles and rule. My question addresses how they support female empowerment, and I do want that to be an involvement throughout my essay. What I need help with is creating an outline and finding less generalized topics to research. What are some aspects of an outline that I need to have and what needs to be contained in one? How can I narrow down my topics? What forms of literature should I be looking towards to gather information and research from?
  6. Hi guys. I need a bit help on how to do research on the lack of political rights for Nigerian women.

I have some research on role of women in politics in Nigeria and the political system of Nigeria. I am a bit unsure on what else should I research on. What should I mostly focus on?

  8. Hey, for my Extended Essay for History I want to write a comparative essay on Lenin and Stalin and the extent to which they followed Marxist ideology. Is this considered "trivial nature"? Also, how would I frame my question. I also want to utilise case studies from Hitler/Mussolini's reign to demonstrate that a lot of their policies were similar or even the same as Stalin/Lenin's. Some ideas I had were. How successful were both Lenin and Stalin in following Marxist Ideology? To what extent were both Lenin and Stalin implement Marxist ideology after the fall of Tsarist Russia in 1917?
  9. Hey Guys, So i wanted to write my EE on the effects of segregation in schools in the 1960's do you know any good sources I could use?
  10. Hello! So recently I have been struggling to with the Extended Essay research question or topic in general. My supervisor isn't much help tbh, but I think I might have figured it out. Basically I am doing World studies in English and History. I chose immigration to be my global issue and decided to focus on Germany (my local area). This my research question: To what extent did Germans try to push the Turkish guest-workers (immigrants) out of Germany during the time 1960-90s and how was literature used to isolated immigrants? Is it any good? Is it too brought? The thing is I am not sure how I can bring English into this without trying to find a piece of literature and analyse it. Another thing is, a teacher of mine told us to choose the subject that we are going to study later but I don't think I am going into English and Literature even though I would love to do political science, my parents are planning something in Biology, basically science area. But I chose World Studies because I am really interested in global issues and political issues such as mass immigration, or identity politics etc.
  11. Hey Guys, So I am at that time in my junior year where I have to propose three extended essay research questions but I have no idea what to do. I wanna do it in English, Visual Arts or Art History and about something related to women deprivation/representation, segregation or something similar to that. Do you guys have any ideas for my research question? I would really appreciate some help. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hey all, So I have my IO this Monday. Individuals in our class work in pairs of two for the IO. We have read Medea by Euripides. My topic is as follows: Consider the ways in which Greek drama is constructed – how are dramatic conventions used and how do these differ from/are alike modern drama? Consider when, how, and where Greek drama was predominantly performed. In relation to this, consider Aristotle’s definition of a tragedy. Now I have found out a little about the structure. There is a prologue and then the chorus enters. Thereafter there is an alternation between episodes (interaction between actors) and choral odes (songs/chants). At first I thought that Shakespearean drama is considered to be modern drama but its actually plays written in the 19th 20th centuries. I also noticed that Greek drama follows freyard's pyramid. I don't really get what dramatic conventions mean though. I have tried googling but its not clear. Could someone please shed some light on this? Also if someone has some general advice for the reflective statement and the IO it would help greatly. Thanks!
  13. Hi everyone I'm desperately in need of some advice on my EE. I'm at research stage but I'm completely lost right now. So far, my EE was on competitive advantages and startup. My question was 'What are the competitive advantages Google owned, as a startup, that help it to go over other search engines (1990s - now). My supervisor told me to sharpened my question and sort my research but I'm stuck right now Help me please!!!!
  14. Hey everyone, I've noticed that there is a lack of Theater Arts students on this website and I struggle to find help and advice for my Theater class. Today I decided to put that behind me considering I have been through a lot during my theater journey and decided it would be easier for me to just create a forum for the new Theater Arts students from 2016 onward. This forum will be a discussion point for everything Theater based from the Nov 2016 session and for the years to come (unless they change the syllabus again). Please feel free to ask me any questions that might concern you about the Theater Arts course as I am graduating this November so I've gone through the ups and the downs of being a Theater student.
  15. Hi guys, Does IB accept research title (e.g. Impact of Brexit on Business Profit: Evidence in the XXX town) instead of research question (e.g. To what extent has Brexit affected the profits of the small business in XXX town). Thanks.
  16. survey

    Hello all, I'm conducting a survey for my design tech class having to do with laptops, your likes and dislikes, cost, and a couple other things. It takes about a minute or two to take, so it won't take too much from valuable study time. Here is the survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfhpDi3e_Ys4480_loCcMGf-6IW_eqGiKMgAQoEoH0SlwMRqQ/viewform#responses If you have any questions/comments, feel free to write them and I will do my best address them. Thanks!
  17. Hi guys! I'm doing my Maths Studies IA about the the relationship between time spent on using social media and cognitive skills among teenagers. In order to gather data, I need to carry out an experiment. It is going to look like in the following way: - use Facebook for 5 minutes - then go to http://www.humanbenchmark.com/games, play these 4 games, save both your score and the percentile from every game - then use Facebook for 10 minutes and again, play these 4 games, save both your score and the percentile from every game - then use Facebook for 15 minutes and do exactly the same. Next day, use Twitter for 5, 10 and 15 minutes. After each period, play 4 games, save your scores and percentiles. Then do exactly the same for Snapchat. You can do everything on the same day, or you can break this experiment into smaller components. Just make a break between using each social media, so that the gathered data will be unreliable. I created a special table, where you can enter your data. I think I need the table completed until Monday afternoon (Central European Time).You can upload the finished table below or send it to me in a private message. I'd be eternally garteful if you could help me with this. Thanks! social_media.docx
  18. Hello, i am stuck on my EE in History. Currently i am still in first research weeks and i came across this problem: Basically my topic is "The evolution of the enigma encrypting technique and its role during the second world war", and the research question is "To what extend would a failed decipher of the enigma have changed the second world war?". Firstly, i have not included the evolution of the enigma bit in the research question, however i definitely want to include something like a possible change in WW2 in the EE. Is this dramatic, or is this okay? Secondly, i really want to include other information about the enigma in the EE (e.g. the evolution of the actual encrypting technique), however i have read that the History EE has to be strictly argumentative in the IB Guide. Is this a miss interpretation or is it possible to actually combine information with the argumentation? And Finally, is it compulsory to write the History EE argumentative? Yes or No? and if Yes do you guys think that the research question still fits the topic? Thank you very much for any future responses...

  20. I'm doing my EE on psychology and how drugs and sleep effect the teenage brain. I'm working on research but I am having a hard time finding studies because when you search something, hundreds of studies pop up and most of them aren't relevant. I've tried to make them really specific, such as "biological effect of sleep deprivation on adolescent neuropathy" but it is still too vague to get relevant studies to show up. Any tips on how to narrow down this search or easily determine if a study is relevant?
  21. Hi, I'm starting researching for my PP. In order to have a better idea of my audience, and what my product should include I made a short survey. Please answer the questions, it would really help me out, thank you https://www.esurveycreator.com/s/430c5b5

  24. Hi IBSurvival Forum! As I am approaching my analysis portion of my research-based extended essay, I would be delighted to get some feeback on analysis I have planned and subsequent conclusion. Before I go into the main point of this post, my stubborn foolishness led me to stick to a Bio EE, and I would just like to say it is immensely difficult to write a biology extended essay that meets the IB requirement to a high standard. My supervisor happened to be the EE coordinator as well as my biology teacher and the essays she had supervised previously were all research-based essays. Out of the 13 she supervised, 5 got As and 4 got Bs. Hence, in her experiences, if a student had an above average aptitude in the biological sciences and were genuinely interested in the topic they were writing about, a research-based essay can succeed contrary to the popular belief. So my current topic is on the gene regulation in HIV proviral latencies, in specifics the epigenetic control of HIV genes. I am planning to compare two different epigenetic mechanisms (histone modification and DNA methylation) that have been hypothesized and shown to happen by different virologists and researchers, and, evaluate the effectiveness of each in gene silencing and activation using content from the Biology curriculum + additional knowledge. Finally, I would relate this back to HIV and whether one is indeed more effective than the other in the context of HIV latencies. Could I get any general feedback on this idea? Thank you in advance for any replies. ^.^ P.S. If you feel this is too brief, I would gladly PM or email the rest of what I have planned out.
  25. IA

    Hi, I have a IA topic in mind, though is it ok to investigate this? To what extent was the invasion of Grenada of 1983 Reagan's Cuban Missile Crisis? / Compare (and contrast) the invasion of Grenada in 1983 to the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. or To what extent was the invasion of Grenada of 1983 in line with the Roosevelt Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine of 1905? Would any of these work?
