At the course in Athens they seemed pretty confident that each of the topics would have 2 essays for each section, so the students will have a 'one or the other' choice, but as you say we did not have sample paper to look at, but did use the new markscheme to mark old questions. It seemed very similar to the last one. He also said that they could write a specific question on any of the named people/places etc that are in the HG for the section you are studying, so yes, I suppose you could come a cropper if you haven't looked at these things in detail.
Yes, that does make sense, but the % for paper 1 is also lower and that's mind-blowingly easy! Again, it will be "all change" this year since none of us yet knows how the new paper 3 will be. There's going to be a lot less choice of essay titles, so if you get an odd one, you could be in trouble...

Teaching IB History and IB ToK in Sept. Very nervous! Any advice on a SoW or useful resources would be greatly appreciated!

We teach IGCSE, 20th century, Depth Study Germany. At Ib level our options are the Rise and rule of single party states, Causes, practices, effects of war. Paper 1 topic: International Relations. Current HL option for paper 3 is East Asia. If anyone wants to link up, that would be great.
Ps - Its my first international post and first IB school!

I'm Rachael and I'm the Head of History at the British International School, Vietnam. I've worked in IB shcools before, but I was formerly a teacher of TOK and CAS so am brand new to the History side of things.
Still very much trying to find my feet with it all, but not hating the new syllabus, though I'm not convinced of the wisdom of clumping Europe and the Middle East together for the regional study.
As a first timer always grateful to hear of suggestions for resources, teaching strategies.
