  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Dear IB survival community, I am currently planning my Economics EE. I chose to investigate the market structure of my local coffee shop industry. I think this is a topic which allows for lots of primary research, however, I definitely want to include some relevant secondary sources in my essay as well. My supervisor has told me to look into economic books that deal with market structure analysis. Does anyone have any suggestions for that matter? Or any other useful tips or resources I could use for my essay?
  4. Hello! I am a grade 11 HL History student, and have the task of choosing a topic for both my IA and EE. I am very interested in ancient history, e.g. the Roman Empire, Alexander the Great or the Greek city states - I told my teacher that I would like to write either the HI or EE on one of these (most likely Rome), and she said that the one glaring problem with such topics is the lack of sources and the need to rely on secondary sources, since these events took place thousands of years ago. For those of you who have written either the Historical Investigation or Extended Essay on ancient histor
  5. Does anyone know the creators and origins of these two cartoons about Mao's 'Hundred Flowers' Campaign? I can't find any websites that have them but that also mention the name of the cartoonists and when they were created.
  6. How many sources should you have for a History Extended Essay? How many different factors or reasons should you cover?
  7. So I will be doing my Extended Essay on either China's Cultural Revolution or before it; specifically, either the Red Guard, the Wuhan Incident or the Hundred Flowers Campaign. But I'm wondering where I could find primary sources. Are there any specific websites or books? Any online archives that I could access? Any pictures, newspaper/magazine articles, etc. from the time would be really useful! Also figures and statistics (of anything) would be great, but it's difficult to find them, especially for individual cities. I'm not sure about this, but I think that the Chinese
  8. Paper 1 The purpose of this thread is to introduce you to Paper 1, the Source Paper. Whether you are taking Standard Level or a Higher Level examination makes no difference as, rather unusually, the sources and questions are the same for both examinations. The reason why I'm doing this is that I've came to notice there's a lot of people here in IBS which don't really understand what's required for this paper. There are three Prescribed Subjects assessed in Paper 1: Peacemaking, Peacekeeping – International Relations 1918–36 The Arab-Israeli Conflict 1945–79 Communism in Crisis 1976–
  9. Helloo!! Could anyone help with an interview template (from trusted sources)? I need it for my WT1..pleaseeee
  10. For my Business Management EE, I have about 19 secondary sources and 1 primary source. However, many things my primary source said, weren't corroborated by any secondary sources. My secondary sources were mostly used to justify solutions and whatnot. My teachers told me that I should have a mix of primary and secondary sources that state the same thing, but I can't find any secondary sources talking about the issues I discussed about the company I chose. My EE supervisor told me this wasn't a problem, but here we are. Could this issue cause me to fail the EE?
  11. Am I allowed to use a source that is used in my History IA in my Extended Essay?
  12. Hey guys, I am writing the extended essay regarding desalination plants (subject: ESS). It is mostly based on secondary sources (statistics), however some primary data will be presented. My problem is that some of the secondary data that I used may be considered out of date as it is from around 2010-2015. Therefore, I sometimes have to compare two different locations based on data from different years (maximum of 5 years difference). Would I loose marks for this? Thank you!
  13. Hello, I was wondering how does the IB check for plagiarism in the Visual Arts course (for the visual content, like photos and images). I take Visual Arts HL Photography, and I am just worried that some of my content might show up online because I tend to publish stuff on Tumblr and such. My friends reblog my content and it's a heavy chain of reblog-repost action. Do you think I'll fail my diploma? It has been getting to me lately. If caught, they do contact you first, correct? I mean, you must be given a chance to explain yourself after all. Someone help out a sister
  14. I am doing mathematics for my extended essay and my topic is on Morley's Trisector Theorem, which states that if you trisect the three angles of any triangle, then the resulting intersections of each adjacent pair of trisectors forms an equilateral triangle in the center, deemed the Morley Triangle. My topic is on finding an expression for the area of that triangle depending on the placement of one of the points of the triangle in space, and later find the maximum area of the triangle as the area of the outer triangle extends to infinity. The problem is... I am not sure what to do about m
  15. I'm writing an extended essay on a literary device that Atwood uses in The Handmaid's Tale and The Penelopiad in reference to the latter. There are no outside sources on this device and I have heard or seen no mention of it anywhere after consulting the internet, IB staff at my school, and my (well-read and sharp) English teacher. I'm not going to say the device on here because it would take a lot of explaining and it would dilute the focus of my question -- Because I am writing a literature extended essay on an original idea and its application in one novel without relying on external li
  16. Hi all, I know that journals are the best sources for information in terms of psychology ia's, but would it be bad if i cite sources such as: a slideshare that has concise information about the topic simplypsychology.org psychyogi.org A citation/reference used in a wikipedia article? I am having trouble finding free (clear and concise) sources for the studies I will be talking about in my IA (Pickel 1998, loftus 1987, Yuille & Cutshall 1986)
  17. Ok, so I have my Written Task 1 assignment, and I am thinking of either doing a blog or a magazine article. The problem is that I have to list my task in APA-format (as required by my school), so I was wondering if I should list the sources in APA as I would have listed the sources if I was writing a regular essay (using brackets inside the text itself and so on)? I feel that this would look very wrong, but then my teacher said that we had to use the APA format.
  18. I'm currently looking for an article for my international economics commentary and I had a few questions. My teacher isn't letting me use an article from the internet because apparently the IB has a rule saying that only one out of three articles can be from an internet source, while the other 2 have to be from a print source. Is this rule true? I couldn't find anything specific pertaining to sources of articles in the economics guide, so I just want to make sure its ok to use an online article. Thanks guys!
  19. I am doing my Extended Essay in English A, with a focus on unreliable narration in one particular book. However, I'm quite worried about the lack of sources I have. Since it's not a heavily 'research based' paper (which seems kind of contradictory to EE since it is known as a research paper), I only have two/three sources at the moment, (one of them being the novel I'm writing about). I know the mark scheme says "an imaginative range of appropriate sources have been consulted", however this is relatively vague (and understandably so). I guess my question is: is two sources for an English
  20. if the statement of the historian is accrutate that we are writing but we forget the ful name of the person. are they going to know if we make up a name or are say a name close to the orginial
  21. Hi there I want to do an analysis of this source for my historical investigation, but I want to make sure it is "appropriate for the investigation" - scholarly enough I guess. The source is a two-volumes book comprising a college dissertation written by a sociologist/educator/social worker for her ph.D in Philosophy. Thanks in advance!
  22. I'm writing my EE right now and there are things which I want to include which come from my own knowledge (basically just stuff that people know, for example "WWII started in 1939"). Can I include it in the essay without a reference? Because I didn't get it from a book or anything, it's just something I already knew. Thank you!

    HISTORY IA

    I am trying to find sources for my history IA and I am having trouble finding them. My question is: “To what extent was the Hitler youth significant in the social Nazification of Germany?†I am planing to look at the role of Hitler youth, as well as control over media and the crushing of discontent. My history teacher told us to look for expert historians in that field but even then I cant seem to find anything substantial enough. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated thank you!
  24. So I've recently started my IA, and I was just wondering how many sources is a "good amount" of sources to have for this? Hope it's not too much of a dumb question! Thanks
  25. Hello, I searched a bit for books on the internet and came to the conclusion that it does cost quite a bit. So the question came up: How many books do I really need as source material for the EE? What is the limit, the mininum? Honestly I do not know if I will use all of it (9 books in the sum), they do seem as good material though. On what should I pay attention to when searching for secondary literature, books, etc.? I have the same problem for the WA - listed 5 secondary literature right now, hesitant to buy them though because we haven not dealt with the book yet but it seems very intere
