Homework – TOK and tell ~ 30 minutes

Sep 27, 2021

The aim of this activity is encourage you to start thinking about TOK in your other subjects and to encourage you to collect material from your other subjects that might be relevant for discussion in TOK

1. Identify a specific example of something that you have studied in one of your other subjects that illustrates one of the key TOK concepts. You can think back to GCSE if you need to as it is still early in the IB course.
2. Produce a 30 second speech to give to the class at the start of your next lesson describing what you have chosen, which of the key TOK concepts it illustrates and a brief explanation of how it illustrates this concepts.
3. Record your contribution in your TOK journal

The main idea of The Theory of Knowledge lessons is to ask, to second guess, and to understand truly. In such a vast moving world we live in, every recorded knowledge of humankind doubles within two years. It is impossible to question every piece of information we get, so we assume - and start believing what others tell us. It, therefore, makes sense to try focusing on root questions, questions that affect our everyday lives at it's core. In Global Politics, we make use of that very concept every day. We are not just discussing global issues but try to understand and analyse them comprehensively. Same with literature, where we interpret the author’s writing, trying to understand their thoughts.
