  1. I'd like to add to my previous post, as I now hate it even more. We have already submitted our essays to Turnitin, and are waiting to submit it to the IB directly in class. We have already done our presentations. In other words, there is NO reason that we should continue. But the second year IBDP students are with the first year for TOK this year, so we are being assigned homework (like, essays) for AoKs that they are just now studying that cannot help us, since we're done with everything. But he doesn't allow us to do other stuff, and our class/classroom is so small that you can't hide that y
  2. Personally I hate TOK, but that's probably just my experience with the class. We had this pre-IB class that was really cool, Creative and Critical Thinking, which is what I thought TOK was going to be like. It's not. At all. Despite the fact that it has the same teacher, he's not near as interesting and, to be honest, I'm quickly tiring of everyone in there. To make it all worse, he said that even though we're wrapping up our essays now, we'll still have to come in there and do work because supposedly the state requires us to, even though none of the past TOK classes have had to do this. It's
  3. Those both fall into the Human Sciences, so that's only one AoK. You will need to choose another to complete the question, just FYI.
  4. Basically, it's as hard as you make it. If you refuse to try and learn the information, then it's a really hard class. But if you try to genuinely interest yourself in it, then it's pretty fun. That said, it's a TON of memorization, plus how to apply everything you've memorized. It's hardly a walk in the park, but you'll manage. As a Bio HL student, it's hardly impossible. I don't study, and I get 100s/high As on every test, no problem. It's just a lot of stuff to cram into your brain.
  5. Alright guys, I need your help! Please get your Group 4 teacher (or you can do it, if you can get the information from your school) to complete the attached survey! Just PM me with the completed survey copied from Microsoft Word (or with just your answers listed with the appropriate question number), or you can just post here with your answers after you're done. Also, please include what country you live in, just so that I can say that we did include an "international" aspect to our project. I included a short message at the bottom of the survey as to its purpose, and it would be a real help.
  6. Well u better ask him about whether he is knowingly teaching HL or giving HL work accidentally. Then either do HL French, or tell him you only want to do SL. I don't exactly know how I would go about doing such a thing. I mean, I don't want to be rude or anything...
  7. Wait a minute... I'm in SL, and our teacher already made us read and analyze a book in French! No fair! If I'm doing HL work, I want HL credit! I had to write a 200 word essay analyzing an aspect of that book!i think that's normal.. because in one of our IAs we have to do some analysis sort of thing between two texts.. a reflective statement or something like that..Incorrect. Only at HL it does. At SL it's supposed to be between 3 articles and at HL between 2 literary texts.cjy is right. At SL we get 3 articles that we have to read then write 250 or so words on it along with a rationale. At HL

  9. That's perfect, thank you! In my introduction, my thesis was that "While there were other factors that led to the German defeat at the Battle of the Bulge, the mobile armored divisions acted as the key military force for the Germans, and would have been their saving grace, had they been utilized to their full potential," since my whole argument in the paper is that they had the superior armor to win, but their armor was not deployed effectively and at the right time (lack of supplies and whatnot, which probably would have changed the outcome), so they lost. (Also note: I'm not sure whether or
  10. I really think that if you feel like you have the skill from your 5 years, you should do SL French. I don't find it too difficult, and a conversation with the IB French teacher at your school will tell you whether or not you're up to par. You might even choose HL, depending on what your teacher says about your skill. Wait a minute... I'm in SL, and our teacher already made us read and analyze a book in French! No fair!

  11. Yeah, if anything, the technical specs are much shorter than the strategy section, since that was what really led to the final result of the battle. And I pretty much assumed that reading specs wouldn't really give even your average history teacher a clear picture of how that relates to anything, so I tried to pair specs with, "And this is what that number would mean (i.e. Why a certain size gun is important for this particular tank doing this particular job, rather than just the size.)" Perhaps I'm just slow on the uptake, but can you explain this? @Ayedott Gee Well, that wasn't really avail
  12. Beauty is a combination of factors that makes something aesthetically pleasing. The specific factors and in what combination they are in depends on each individual. What I think of as "beautiful", might not necessarily correlate to what you consider "beautiful".
  13. So, my History EE topic is: How did the strategy and mobile armored divisions of Nazi Germany affect the outcome of the Battle of the Bulge? Yeah, yeah, I've already read that you shouldn't do a World War II Extended Essay, but it's a little late for that. I'm getting ready to turn in my first draft, and I'm worried it won't sound interesting when my advisor reads it. It's a lot of technical specs on the Panzer tanks and discussion on battle strategy, wrapping up with an explanation of how even though the tanks were good, the strategy wasn't, and how that affected the outcome. I think it's int
  14. Can you post what you've been thinking of? I mean, what's your not-specific research question? After all, this site isn't to give you the topic, it's to suggest things to help you narrow down a topic you already have.
