I didn't know we had a choice!! The teacher just said 'you topic must be from the cold war', so that's what I did........I think it's so the teacher makes sure we're writing the right stuff.

Welcome to the forum . You can do anything for your presentation (though our teachers helped us out by presenting us with a lot of possible presentation titles. If you want them plz tell me ) and your essay is assigned by the IB. You will have 10 possible choices.

You're in your first year of IB right? You don't really have to worry about this till 12th grade

I think that those ppl that had problems with narrowing down the topic would face the same difficulties even if their teacher gave them the broader topic (like Cold War or Stalin's rule). afterall, you still have to find a specific topic inside this broader topic.
anyway, I still think that this is actually a restriction of the students' rights and it shows the teacher's incompetence to give good advice on other topics than the one (s)he has chosen for you to work on. but hey, my school violated our rights as well, for example we weren't allowed to take the A1 language (Slovene) on SL and things like that...

well, the first paper looks like it'll be okay, since it's just memorizing stuff out of the textbook..
but the second paper includes writing algorithms and doing something with the case study they give you.. it's the second paper i'm worried about

man... only 11 school days for me until IB exams :eek:

Actually, since he narrowed it down I found it very, very easy to choose a topic.

Yea, we don't have Japanese A1 which is soooo weird....though i'm glad i'm in A2 (which is the highest level you can take for Japanese in our school).

I'm really lucky: I only have exams for five subjects, and one of them (French) I'm not studying for at all. I'm the only one in my class who actually speaks any French, so I'm not worried at all.
