  1. Hey all, I've been having a lot of trouble writing the 45 minute essays that are assigned in HL History (year 1). Does anyone have any tips or strategies, or possibly well written exemplars, that I could use to improve my style of writing? I think I end up giving too much narrative and not giving as strong of an argument as I should be, but any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  2. I need some urgent guidance regarding my IB subject choices for next year!!! This is what I've entered; English Lit A HL Economics HL History HL Maths SL Environmental systems and societies SL Mandarin ab initio SL However, I still have the opportunity to make changes so I thought I'd ask for some thoughts on them before I finalise. First of all - do they seem optimal for law at Russel Group/Ivy Leauge unis? English Lit, Economics, Maths and Mandarin are more or less definite so I am left with two concerns; I am considering swapping out History HL to G
  3. Hi! I have a research area but I'm not sure if it's narrow enough: Switzerland's role in the Third Reich's Progression during WW2 I'm really interested in this topic, but I've found quite a lot of sources analyzing how Switzerland aided the Axis Powers, and I'm not so sure that it'll be original enough for an EE. Though there is definitely scope for me to accumulate different perspectives and form a strong conclusion. I'd appreciate any help or feedback!
  4. I need some help deciding on my group 3. My school only offers History HL and Psychology HL, so I'm basically being forced to sacrifice one of my HL's to group 3. I'm interested in both, I like learning about history, and I also find Psychology fascinating. Ultimately, the deciding factor for my will be the IA. Which IA is easier? The IA for History HL or Psychology HL? Also workload and what you do in the class. Is there more work in History HL or Psychology HL? What kind of work
  5. Hello, I am going to start writing my IA for History, but I am stuck with making a proper question. I know that my topic will be the Indian Partition. I have a few potential questions, but they don't exactly sound right to me. Please let me know how I can fix them/ if they are too broad. Thank you very much. 1.) To what extent was the Partition of India caused by British authority? 2.) To what extent was the Partition of India inevitable? 3.) To what extent was the Indian Partition caused by Hindu-Muslim conflict?

    Hi, So IAs are coming up, and I really need to choose a topic. I've come up with a few already, like I'm really interested in feminism, and I was thinking perhaps something to do with Barbies. I've spoken with my supervisor already, but he says that I should give him a more focused topic idea. I was thinking about how Barbies have evolved from back then to now, and how Barbie represents her own woman who has taken up these fantastic roles and jobs that woman today still haven't been able to do. (President) But it's not exactly a question, and I'm not really connecting the dots here. If this i
  7. I've been deciding over the type of topics that I should write my EE on and the following are just some that came up my mind: Events related to Japanese Expansionism Rape of Nanking Events related to China/ Asia Are there any suggestions about these topics (or suggestions about any other topics related to Asia?) and will it be hard to find sources if I write my EE on Chinese history (1900s)? Thx guys :'))
  8. I want to do my EE in History about the Fall of the Berlin Wall. Maybe look into the international response, or compare two responses (e.g. China's vs Britain's). I don't know how to formulate a RQ tho, and I'm also a bit lost regarding the analysis part - I don't think I have one yet. Possibly which response was more crucial..? Any help/ideas would be very much appreciated!!
  9. I need help choosing a Research Question for my History IA topic. So far I have brainstormed the following: - To what extent was Stalin's First 5 Year Plan successful? - To what extent was the Stalin's First 5 Year Plan motivated by political/economic/ideological reasons? ( I will choose one of the factors) - To what extent were the methods employed in Stalin's First 5 Year Plan successful in meeting its aims? - To what extent was collectivisation successful in increasing the industrial output/meeting the aims of Stalin's First 5 Year Plan? - To what extent was the Mar
  10. Hello, I was wondering if historical interpretations and direct quotations of historians are essential in an essay (paper 2 and 3) for an "evaluation of different perspectives". Sometimes I find it hard to find historical interpretations for everything (plus, do you know how I can find them more easily if they are not in the textbooks?) Thank you in advance!
  11. Hi all, I have decided to write my EE in History and I'd love to know your opinion on whether the analysis of the accuracy of a historical movie is a valid History EE topic. To be more precise, I'd like to analyse the historical accuracy of "Schindler's List". Any tips highly appreciated:)
  12. Hi everyone, I am researching for my history EE, and I am having troubles with finding the evidence for an event. The event consists in a conversation between the king and Mussolini, which is mentioned in multiple books but without any reference to a primary source, but always to other secondary sources (other historians' books ) or no reference at all. My supervisor was bemoaning this, however it seems fair that there is no "transcript" of a private conversation. Is it common\acceptable? How can I back this event better? Thank you in advance
  13. Hello! I am a rising 11th grader and initially selected the courses: HL History, HL Geography, HL English LL, SL Spanish LL, SL Biology, and SL Math Applications and Interpretation. I am considering to switch from HL Geography to HL Biology, and change to SL Math Analysis. However, I would then have two very content heavy HL courses (Bio and History), which I have heard very bad things about. How do-able is it to do these courses together? Could someone also provide feedback on the new maths courses? While I heard that universities do not care which one you pick unless you study a mathema
  14. Hey, I was really confused about how I should start my IA and about the research involved. Can someone please help me? My research question is "To what extent was Hitler's economic policies helpful in revitalizing the German economy from 1933 to 1941?". Thanks, Payas
  15. My History IA question is something along the lines of "TWE were Hitler's expansionist policies a response to the border changes imposed by the Treaty of Versailles." I obviously have to find two sources to analyse on this. If anyone knows of any short-ish (25 pgs or under) sources (either primary or secondary) which discuss this I would be incredibly grateful! Thank you in advance x
  16. Hello everyone. I am writing my extended essay in history. I am interested in aviation (mostly after ww2) and also about the eastern bloc during the coldwar. Does somebody know of a topic that would fit those criteria? Plz Help
  17. Hey there! I was just wondering if anyone knows any good history resources to use. It's quite hard for me to memorize a lot so I'm very slow in comparison to my classmates because I like to take notes on the side of my book to get a better understanding. In my first history book (the move to global war), I was able to find sources on Youtube from a very good highschool professor who went through the book and explained the topics to his students and it helped me a lot. I can't seem to find similar videos for the rest of the books. Right now we're doing Authoritarian States (specifically Cu
  18. So I'm writing a Mini EE for Inquiry Skills, and I was wondering if one of these two questions was good? How have laws regarding homosexuals changed over time around the world? OR How does religion affect homosexual persecution around the world?
  19. Hi, I'm sort of having a dilemma with my courses for next year. I'm currently in pre-IB (grade 10) and am entering IB next year. We already picked our courses, but there will be a day where changes to our courses can be changed. So currently, my courses for the next two years are: HL English (Lang/Lit) HL Biology HL History SL Chem SL Math SL French But, the thing is, I'm debating on switching HL History to HL Business. I'm going into sciences, so neither will really help me. I pretty much have no interest in either business or history either, but they're the only HL humanities that my
  20. Hello! I need some suggestions or at least a bit of help with an IA research question. I'm interested on the case of Jack the Ripper, although I am struggling terribly with a research question. I wanted to do something about the consequences after the Jack the Ripper case had been open up to the public. Like did the police changed the way they do their work? How did the public take it? Like that sort of thing, although I'm not sure where to start to do this research question.
  21. Hey all, just hoping to get some help regarding my extended essay topic. I'm currently doing my extended essay research question on To What Extent Did the American Red Cross Impact World War One Europe? I've been ok-ed by my teachers for this topic and have been chugging along. I just got my hands on the extended essay guide course companion book and read through some parts, and looked around online for additional information. My problem is I'm starting to think my topic can't really be looked at from other angles. All my research blatantly shows they had a large impact, how would I argue agai
  22. I mean if I can avoid doing footnotes I will actually do a backflip, I just hate them.
  23. I'm planning to do Economics at the UK for uni and was wondering which HL would be better for me, psych or history HL? My other subjects: HL - Math, Economics SL - Biology, Eng Lang Lit, French ab initio Thanks in advance!
  24. I have successfully procrastinated my History IA and the first draft is due tomorrow...I trashed my first one because I found the topic incredibly boring so I was wondering if this is any good : “To What Extent did President FDR Successfully Change the Nature in Which US Presidents Communicate with the Public Through his Fireside Chats?”
  25. Are there any websites or online help on how to structure and create a good history IA? I am also struggling with selecting a topic. I know I am going to do something about Catherine the Great as I believe she was a major influence on Modern Russia. However, I am not sure on which part about Catherine the Great I should do. I feel like the overthrowing of her would have a lot of material but might be too popular so I am looking into maybe the impact of one of her policies/acts (medical influence perhaps?) or how she managed to overthrow her own husband to become empress of Russia. Any sug
