World Studies Extended Essay Aims And Objectives In Thesis
I also used comparison in my EE, comparing Harold Pinter's in order to show a transition in British Theatre.Topics with comparisons of 2-3 plays/books/diets/etc. tend to be in the sweet spot of not too narrow or broad because you can analyze each portion and after doing in-depth analysis on each, you compare and explain the significance of the comparison.Next, create a list of pros and cons (I know this sounds tedious, but it really helps! EXCEPTION: 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. There was no theatre teacher at my school, so I could not find a theatre-specific advisor, but I chose the next best thing.Some IB high schools require your IB Extended Essay advisor to sign an Agreement Form.In layman’s terms, my IB Diploma was graded during May 2010, I wrote my Extended Essay in the English A1 category, and I received a grade A. We combine world-class expert tutors with our proprietary teaching techniques.
If after brainstorming, you pick a non-comparison based topic and you are still unsure if a topic is too broad or narrow, spend 30 minutes doing some basic research and see how much material is out there. Do NOT just ask your favorite teacher to be your advisor.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.Once you begin looking through the list of sample essays below, you may notice that many use comparisons.If there are over 1,000 books/articles/documentaries out there on the exact topic, it may be too broad. They may be a hindrance to you if they teach another subject.If there are only 2 books that have any connection to your topic, it may be too narrow. Speaking of advisors: 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. 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. I would not suggest asking your Biology teacher to guide you in writing your English EE.Once you have figured out a general subject area such as physics, you should brainstorm more specific topics by putting pen to paper. You can’t write about WWII because that would be a book's worth of material.What was your favorite chapter you learned in that class? You don’t want to write about what type of soup prisoners of war received in POW camps because you probably can’t come up with 4000 words on it.The IBO recommends that the supervisor spends approximately two to three hours in total with the candidate discussing the EE. Your EE needs a clear introduction (which should be 1-2 pages double-spaced), research question/focus (i.e.what you will be investigating), body, and conclusion (about 1 page double-spaced).For the Extended Essay, you choose a research question as a topic; this topic needs to be approved by IBO (which is not very difficult).You can do a typical research paper or conduct an experiment/solve a problem.
