Every student writing or preparing to write their Extended Essay (EE) and every supervisor should listen to Ms. Stein and her brilliant advice. After reading hundreds of essays and successfully coordinating the EE at Stamford American International School (a large international school in Singapore) for years, Rebecca Stein gives advice about how to choose a good research question, how and when to focus your energy (hint, writing the essay is the easy part), and the best kind of mindset a student should have while producing their essay. We also discuss the role of the supervisor and Rebecca gives excellent advice about what kind of support is allowed, encouraged, and needed for supervisors to help students appropriately. 
I recommend every grade 10 and grade 11 student and every EE supervisor to listen to this interview, and take notes!
