You can download this form and type into the spaces rather than hand write your planning work. It is an interactive pdf so you can’t open it in Preview on a mac. You must use Adobe Acrobat to open.
This guide was replaced this year but there are still many valuable items here. In particular you will find great knowledge questions on pages 13-40.
“Theory of knowledge (TOK) is a curious subject. It is curious in the sense that it questions and wonders, reflects and connects, in a spirit of inquiry. It is also curious in the other sense of the word—that it is a little odd, a little unlike the other subjects in the IB Diploma Programme.
School leaders might be the first to ask, “What’s this subject all about?”
Great TOK resource.
“Because the Ways of Knowing are processes or activities so natural to students, their problematic aspects, worthy of reflection, do not come readily to conscious or critical attention. The senses, through perception, seemingly provide a window on the world as it really is, and the emotions have seldom been viewed as an integral aspect of human awareness and intelligence.
Additionally, the acquisition of a first language occurs so easily for most people, and communication with others is so effortless, that the influence of language in shaping thought is seldom noticed. Finally, the appeal of a well-constructed argument can be sensed even without any formal training in logic or other forms of reasoning.
The questions which follow are intended to stimulate and guide the reflection of students about these and related issues.”
