The biggest change focuses on the emphasis for reflection so you will want to look through some example prompts on the website to focus your 500 word 3 part reflection.
Any teacher can supervise but you need to point students towards subject specific resources and focus your meetings with the student on development on argument and looking for perspectives that other subject lens bring to the topic. In our workshop a huge range of potential topics were discussed, many of which included Economics as a possible focus.
It is a one of possibilities of the Extended Essay (EE) for students to choose this as an interdisciplinary option where instead of choosing one subject focus on at least two subjects in a combined fashion.
It was initially a pilot connected to Harvard Project Zero initiative and available for examination since 2013.
My chemistry teacher informed us of it and told us that it was much more research-based as opposed to physically doing and recording data for labs.
I would like to ask you guys the following questions, they are mainly directed at those who did their EE (or are working on) World Studies (any science associated with such): This is the unofficial subreddit for all things concerning the International Baccalaureate, an academic credential accorded to secondary students from around the world after two vigorous years of study, culminating in challenging exams.Do they look at subjects together to identify differences or contrast subject based perspectives.For some students the following model might be a start.It is examined using the same criteria for all other Extended Essays.The following is a process for thinking about a World Studies EE (WS EE) The most important thing to keep in mind is find a link from something small (eg.local, micro) to the bigger idea (eg.global, meta, macro) When we focus on the interdisciplinary nature of research we will see that the whole is more than the sum of the parts and the importance of disciplinary specific tools to assess the whole from different perspectives.This is no longer an explicit requirement within the EE rubric so many WSEEs can be completed using only secondary data.Very few can only be answered using primary data as secondary research provides the context.It can also refer looking at a bigger meta concept vs a small subpart of the concept.Essays should contain both primary and secondary data.This week we were luckily enough to have a specific workshop on the World Studies Extended Essay option for students.Here are my notes, thoughts and some examples from the session and ideas on how it connects to Economics.
