Unpacking the criteria of the World Studies EE

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

On the IB Extended Essay Guide, it says the following about the WS EE:

"Successful interdisciplinary essays require an integrative argument or explanation—that is, the different subjects should be coherently brought together to address the question through, for example:

  • a complex causal explanation

  • a leading metaphor

  • a model

  • an analogy."


Now, I'm a bit confused. I kind of get the meaning of the first bullet, but what on earth do the last three bullet points mean? Are they saying that I should use a metaphor in my World Studies EE? Can anyone provide (meaningful, sophisticated) examples?
