Extended Essay

About the Extended Essay: The Extended Essay (EE) is a 4,000 word research paper completed during the IB diploma student's junior and senior years. The student will select a topic connected to one of the subjects studied junior year, develop a research question, and write an essay that is an independent investigation of his or her topic. The student will work with a faculty supervisor who is available to consult with and advise the student. The student will participate in three mandatory reflection sessions with the supervisor -- 18% of the student's grade will be based on reflections on the process of writing the EE, written after the three sessions.
See the IB Diploma Student Resources page for handouts, calendars, and information related to the Extended Essay.
