Read The Directions! Know the Directions! Live the Directions!
You will not be successful in this process if you don't constantly refer to the directions. They are your lifeline! There are two sets of directions, the smaller SCHS direction packet gives you all of the key points from the IB World direction website that you need to know no matter what your topic is, but you must also read the pages on the IB World full packet or website that go over your chosen subject area.
