  1. Hey, so we are doing our TOK presentation on how social media bias and society affect one's perception of beauty. We are thinking of giving examples of extreme cases of anorexia, barbie dolls being the international standard of beauty and how only recently they started to change their appearance and involving 2 areas of knowledge, though we have only though of 1 AOK so far: natural sciences. Could you maybe help us in formulating our Knowledge Question/Issue and area of knowledge? We were thinking of something among the lines of: To what extent does sense perception and imagination affect people's perception of beauty in regards to natural sciences and [blank]? Does this sound TOKish enough and what other tips could you give us for our presentation? Also our RLS is an article from CNN- "Fat-shaming could raise health risks, study suggests". Do you think that this is an extensive enough article and how many RLS do we have to present in our presentation? Do we have to present a situation from real-life for every claim that we make?
  2. What do I have to do to fulfil the "with reference to two areas of knowledge" part of a prescribed essay title in TOK?
  3. I read somewhere online that if you get an E in either TOK or EE, you have to get at least 28 points overall in the IB Diploma, instead of 24. Is this true? Is it possible to pass the IB if this happens?

    ToK

    Can a ToK Journal be opinionated? As in "I think that..." or "I don't agree that..."?
  5. Hi. I'm still struggling to find a decent topic for my TOK presentation. So far, I'm thinking about using this one: To what extent does religion affect our lives? Is this a good question to use? I'm not sure if it touches upon the WOKs AOKs. Thank you
  6. I don't know if the teacher is bad , if I naturally don't like TOK , or if it's just because I don't understand why we have to take this course..
  7. Hello, so I started writing my TKPPD and my topic is on war crimes and my KQ is What role does language play in our knowledge of history? So ive completed most of my form except, I am not sure how to write the perspectives. I have a broad idea but I am not sure whether I am doing it correctly, so can someone help me?
  8. How do you structure a TOK essay answering a prescribed essay title that includes the phrase "Discuss with reference to two areas of knowledge"? Should my claim refer to both areas of knowledge? Or should my claim refer to one area of knowledge, and my counterclaim to another area of knowledge? Should I maybe even split the essay into two sections: one on one AOK and another on another AOK? For example, for one KQ, should I do: Claim = AOK 1 then, Counterclaim = AOK 2 Or.... Claim = AOK 1 and AOK 2 then, Counterclaim = AOK 1 and AOK 2 Or.... AOK 1 = Claim and Counterclaim AOK 2 = Claim and Counterclaim

    Here is my TOK presentation. I hope it would be helpful for you.
  12. Hello! Right now I am working on my TOK Essay. One of my WOKs is sense perception and as a supporting example for my claim, I gave a quote by Helen Keller. Though my counter-claim is also supported by the example of Helen Keller using her touching sense to perceive the reality. My question is: Is it okay to use an example regarding the same person both for claim and counter-claim? My teacher thinks it is kind of not right and conflictual, but I do like the examples. I look forward to hearing from you soon^^
  13. "To what extent was the cold war responsible for the separation between North Korea and South Korea?" is this too broad? please someone help how i should phrase my research question. I really do have interest and a lot of knowledge in this area (the Korean War) & (The Cold War)
  14. Hey, I'm writing my ToK essay now and I don't really understand what Problems of Knowledge are. I know what it is about more less, I read some posts about them but I have no clue how to write my essay as each paragraph must be based on one PoK.
  15. I have not had a TOK lesson so I just want to know so I can started very soon.
  16. Can we please discuss these titles, specially TITLE 2 !!!!!!!
  17. Please answer to the poll
  18. So my TOK teacher informed us that we're not permitted to submit the TOK presentation in a form of a video, only a PowerPoint presentation is accepted by the IB. I was a bit conflicted by this new information so I asked the librarian and he said that we're allowed, as long as we present ourselves throughout the video occasionally. And then for a confirmation, I inquired the IB Coordinator and she said we're not allowed to use a video as our final presentation. So should I follow what my IB Coordinator said or should I just do what's easier for me and make a video?
  19. Hello! I am currently working on my TOK essay and my title is "Disinterestedness is essential in the pursuit of knowledge.” Discuss this claim with reference to two areas of knowledge". "I'd like to ask whether I am allowed to work on more than two AOKs or it is a requirement to have just two? Thank you!
  20. How do you embed the knowledge framework in a TOK presentation? My KQ is: what role does language play in the acquisition of knowledge? The AOKs I am studying are the natural sciences, mathematics, and the human sciences. I already have links to personal and shared knowledge, and I explain how language is required for majority of the shared knowledge to be transmitted from one person to another. So what else should I include? My teacher said that my presentation will not score high marks because I have no links to the knowledge framework. Thanks!
  21. Hey guys, what are your thoughts on ManageBac? Do your schools use it? In my school I only used it for CAS, but my friend's school used it for everything in the IB but he said it was pretty annoying to use... Is it any good? Do schools use other programmes instead?
  22. I am preparing for a Tok presentation about assisted suicide. So basically I want people's opinion on whether this is a good question for my TOK: "Should we be allowed to have the right to choose our own death?" So is this a good knowledge question? I Appreciate it if anyone can assist me.
  23. I submitted 1200 words TOK essay four days later (Aug 28, 2018) after the deadline. This deadline is not the ib deadline but its what the teacher set. The teacher was okay with me submitting four days late because the majority of the students did not submitted on the deadline. However, today Aug 30, 2018, I decide to submit reworked TOK Essay, specifically changing the introduction, evidence used and 200 more words, then I uploaded to the candidate ib website. The teacher was not okay with me reworking on the essay and told me to submit the previous one, so he rejected my essay I uploaded on the candidate website. For me this is an unfair situation because I reworked hard and there are still students that not yet submit the essay for the school deadline. I think if there are students that are given extra time to work on the essay, I should also have the right to rework on it. The teacher told me that he will not give me extra time, and said that this was supposed be submitted a week ago. He also said "It tooks a week to check my essay" which he did not want to recheck my essay again. My question is am I possible to submit the essay that I reworked after the deadline passed? Do I have the right? Should I ask my teacher for allowing me submit the reworked essay?
  24. Also, no continual placement of knowledge questions throughout the essay, instead focusing on one knowledge question.
