Starting uni is full of surprises: Start new discussion Reply. Follow 1 Everyone in my school hand to hand in their Extended Essays in October. Just out of curiousity I was wondering what all of your topics were. Mine was in history and was a comparitive study between Japanese and Chinese junior high school history textbooks. I focused on their depictions of Japanese aggression in China It was really fascinating.
It was especially fun looking for so-called 'bias' in the textbooks. In there was a Japanese Textbook Scandal in which Japanese Right-wing professors published a textbook that was took a pro-Japanese, pro-fascist stance. It was amazing reading the partiality in that. Almost all of the Japanese textbook distributed in schools now tend to show remorse for the Japanese aggression in China though.

Follow 5 LOL, Im feel like an outsider here. I doing an investigation on the interaction between the current and repulsive force when lifting an aluminium ring using electromagnetically induced levitation. Should not be to difficult for you to figure which subject it is Follow 6 Follow 7 Follow 8 My Extended Essay title was: I wrote it for Theatre Arts and gave research of practical, theoretical and interpretational nature.
You have to narrow down the subject and choose an area that you can easily address. It is often best to pick those topics that you are passionate about. When you are passionate about what you write then you can easily address it in your paper. Your audience can tell by looking at the paper whether you were interested in the subject or not.
If you are having a hard time choosing the right topic for your essay, then you should consider the following ideas. These will help you create a strong paper for your IB extended essay. Our team of academic writers and editors offers free help with writing quality, well-researched and formatted extended papers for baccalaureate programs.
I recommend spending an hour on this type of brainstorming. This is a fine line. However, you could possibly write about how the conditions in German POW camps were directly affected by the Nazis successes and failures. This may be too obvious of a topic, but you get my point. If you're really stuck trying to find a not too broad or narrow topic, I recommend trying to brainstorm a topic that uses a comparison.
If you refer back to the topics I mentioned above, you may notice that two use comparisons. The key here is that the comparison needs to be significant. I compared two plays to show a transition in British Theatre. Comparisons are not the only way to get a grade A EE. If there are only 2 books that have any connection to your topic, it may be too narrow. If you are still unsure, ask your advisor! If you are not certain of who you would like to be your advisor, I would start by creating a list of your top three choices.
Next, create a list of pros and cons I know this sounds tedious, but it really helps! Green is my favorite teacher, and we get along really well, but he teaches English, and I want to conduct an experiment to compare the efficiency of American Hybrid Cars to Foreign Hybrid Cars. White teaches Physics, I had her a year ago, and she liked me. She could help me design my experiment.
I am going to ask Ms. Do NOT just ask your favorite teacher to be your advisor. They may be a hindrance to you if they teach another subject. I would not suggest asking your Biology teacher to guide you in writing your English EE. If you have a teacher who is passionate and knowledgeable about your topic as my English teacher was about my Theatre topic , you can ask that instructor. Consider all of your options first before you do.
There was no theatre teacher at my school, so I could not find a theatre-specific advisor, but I chose the next best thing. Make sure you ask your IB coordinator if there is any required paperwork. IBO does not require any paperwork.
If your school needs a Form signed, make sure you bring it with you when you ask a teacher to be your EE advisor. Some teachers may just take on students because they have to and may not be passionate about reading drafts and may not give you a lot of feedback. Choose a teacher who will take the time to read several drafts and give you extensive notes. I would not have gotten my A without being pushed to make the draft better.
Ask a teacher that you have experience with through class or an extracurricular activity. Do not ask a teacher that you have no connection to; a teacher who does not know you is unlikely to push you. The IBO recommends that the supervisor spends approximately two to three hours in total with the candidate discussing the EE. An essay that has unclear or poor organization will be graded poorly. Also, make sure your word abstract is clear and briefly summarizes your whole argument.
The body of your EE should make up the bulk of the essay. It should be about pages double-spaced again just depending on whether or not you include diagrams. Your body can be split into multiple parts. If you are conducting an experiment or analyzing data such as in this EE , your EE body will have a clear and obvious parts following the scientific method: You will not be able to crank out a 4,word essay in a week and get an A. You will be reading many, many articles and, depending on your topic, possibly books, plays, and watching movies.
If you're confused by what this report means, EE is short for Extended Essay, and English A1 is the subject that my Extended Essay topic coordinated with. In layman’s terms, my IB Diploma was graded during May , I wrote my Extended Essay in the English A1 category, and I received a grade A.
