The extended essay enables students to engage in independent research through an in-depth study of a question relating to one of the DP subjects they are studying. The World Studies extended essay option allows students to focus on a topic of global significance which they examine through the lens of at least two DP subjects.

Approaches to teaching and learning are deliberate strategies, skills and attitudes that permeate the teaching and learning environment in the IB DP classes. These approaches and tools, intrinsically linked with the IB learner profile attributes, enhance student learning and assist student preparation for DP assessment and beyond.
