Extended Essays

Along with CAS, the Extended Essay is the capstone of the IB Diploma Programme curriculum.  It is exciting to see students embark on the intellectual adventure of original research and personal contemplation of the past, and I am always eager to read creative, well-researched student essays on a wide variety of topics in American and world history.  In order to better assist my students in producing a quality product, I have learned to be quite demanding in the level of research, attention to detail, and adherence to early deadlines that I require.  I do this  for the benefit of the student.  The best EEs are completed in a timely manner by students who maintain an intense pace of research and writing, and who complete their work early enough to make multiple revisions and have many readers review their work.  For your and your parents' edification, I have uploaded my general requirements, timeline, and "EE Contract" below.  Welcome aboard!
