  1. Hi, So I got a knowledge question: How do emotions help or hinder our understanding of the correlation? But don't know for what to use for my rls!!! help!
  2. Well its that time of year again, and TOK classes everywhere are working on the dreaded TOK presentation. The very purpose of the TOK presentation has been mocked by the long list of botched presentations (including but not limited to: poor raps, random video clips, insufficient, unprepared rambling, and interpretive dance... yes, it happens), but enough about those. I want to hear about the great TOK presentations that really just made you think about something in a way you haven't before. So far, my favorite TOK topic was one which compared Religiosity and the Gross Domestic Product of nations. They compared the cultures and how different cultures value different things (primarily religion and economic prosperity) with respect to emotion, authority, and reason. It was quite interesting. So what types of interesting topics have you seen presented?
  3. Hey Guys! I've changed my knowledge question like 3 times already and I think I'm gonna go for this one - "to what extent do ways of knowing alter our beliefs" The real-life situation is cigarettes commercials in the 1950s' that used to deceit people into thinking that smoking is healthy Do you think it's a good question? Thank you!!
  4. Version 1.0.0


    here's a document that'll help in filling out the tkppd, a vital element in tok presentation! goodluck
  5. I'm currently thinking of basing my presentation on Ethics and apparently it's not recommended to do anything with ethics. At this point, I'm completely lost about what I'm supposed to do...

    My slides for my TOK presentation which earned 9/10 marked internally
  8. So I've got my presentation due soon, and I have started working on it, but I keep second-guessing it, and I'm not sure if my research question is good 😣. This is it - 'To what extent do the Arts influence our understanding of morality/right+wrong?' The RLS is about violence in video he's and if they can cause real life violence. Any advice is really appreciated 😣
  9. Howdy, fellow IB kids I'm really struggling to find a RLS for my TOK presentation. I had to come up with a knowledge question really suddenly and it is "To what extent does one have the responsibility to share (substantial) personal knowledge?" My main idea for the RLS is to find a case where authorities, scientist have kept a secret from the public that could potentially be really important. Right now my only RLS idea is from the show "The 100" where they are all up on a space ship or something and an engineer finds out that the oxygen will soon run out. When he tells the president, he doesn't allow him to share the discovery to others and kills him to make sure of it. My teacher said that this will probably work, but a REAL RLS would be much better. So if you have any ideas of incidences kind of similar to that I would be REALLY GRATEFUL!
  10. hi for my tok presentation I've chosen an rls related to the French Islamophobia. it talks about the French far-right is this a good rls and should my AOK be ethics or human sciences for this?
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. Hey! I have just finished my draft of the Mathematics SL Exploration. I showed it to my teacher and he said that I have to put double space and separate my calculations from the text. I told that if I do that I will exceed 12 pages. Though, he contends that it is okay. Is it really so? In Maths guide there is nothing on double space and all that stuff that we have in EE. Plus it is explicitly written that exploration must fit into the range of 6-12 pages. So I am confused whether I have to do what the guide is saying or what my teacher claims to be true. Help, please!
  14. For my IOP (Individual Oral Presentation) in English, I am doing Oedipus Rex. My topic is irony, specifically dramatic/situational and literary irony. There are lots of examples of them in the text. 1) What would be a good thesis statement? What should I focus on? 2) How do these types of irony affect the reader? 3) What is the purpose of having them in the text? Any greater implications/ extensions? 4) Is this a good topic even?:) Thank you so much!

    Here is my TOK presentation. I hope it would be helpful for you.
  16. I have not had a TOK lesson so I just want to know so I can started very soon.
  17. 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?
  18. Skip to these useful links: 1. ToK Presentation Guide by Keel 2. How to pick your TOK presentation title by Sandwich 3. Past TOK Presentations - what people chose ToK Presentation Guide Knowledge Issues 'Knowledge issue' i.e. issues about knowledge. It would be appropriate here to consider what ToK is all about. Many naturally assume that anything philosophically based is ToK. Understandable, but wrong. ToK is based around three main questions: What is knowledge? How is knowledge acquired? How do we know what we know? In layman’s terms, a knowledge issue is a very general question which aims to explore the problems of knowledge and evaluate it. Thus, knowledge issues are usually formatted in the form of ‘How do we know…?’ (this deals with question 3) However, there are other forms such as ‘What is the role of [a way of knowing] in [an area of knowledge]?’ (this deals with question 2). The knowledge issue must be stated in the introduction of your presentation as it is what your presentation is all about. For example, ‘To what extend is euthanasia ethical?’ is not a knowledge issue as it does not attempt to answer any of the three basic questions. ‘What ways of knowing can aid us in determining whether euthanasia is ethical?’ is not a well formed main knowledge issue because it is too specific, but at least it is a knowledge issue which deals with question 2. ‘Derived / Sub-’ Knowledge Issues These are knowledge issues in themselves but are connected to the main theme or main knowledge issue of the presentation and are possibly more focused in nature. For example, if your main knowledge issue is ‘What is the role of reason in History?’ a linking knowledge issue you could explore would be ‘How can we use Historical knowledge and inductive reasoning to predict future events?’ Your entire presentation should be based around the main knowledge issue and your main theme, but this sub-knowledge issue will allow you to explore one small aspect of 'the role of reason in History'. Claims and Counter-claims These are statements which are answers to your knowledge issue or sub-knowledge issues. They are then proceeded with evidence that supports such a point. In a way you can treat this as a paragraph in an essay, its structure is similar to the Point Evidence Explaination (PEE) or Statement Evidence eXplaination (SEX) which you may be familiar with. For example, for the knowledge issue ‘How do we know whether homosexuality is ‘natural’?’ A claim would be ‘deductive reasoning can tell us that it is not natural. the natural goal of all living things on earth is to reproduce; homosexuality does not allow the possibility of biological reproduction; therefore homosexuality is not 'natural'. A counter-claim would be that ‘deductive reasoning has its limitations in aiding us to determine whether homosexuality is natural.’ A discussion on the flaws of premises and reliability of deductive reasoning would then take place. Real Life Situation A real life situation is a realistic event, object or scenario that allows you to extract knowledge issues from it or supports your claim, a possible answer to your knowledge issue, by providing evidence. Real life situations can be drawn form anywhere ranging from the news to a book your read to an event that happened on the school playground. The possibilities are endless. Always try to make your real life situation related to you in some way; an incident which happened to you would be perfect. For example, for the knowledge issue ‘How reliable are our sense perceptions in determining what is true.’ For the claim/counter-claim: ‘Sense perceptions have their limitations in determining what is true,’ a real life situation would be, ‘The time when I was small and saw a ghost’s face appear in the curtain, upon further inspection, it was the folds of the curtain that had shaped into something similar to a man’s face. With the combination of flawed inductive reasoning, sense perception had hindered my knowledge of truth.’ Getting Started There are two main ways to get yourself started. is to find a real life situation which really interests you. You will extract one knowledge issue from it and simplify it to make it into your main knowledge issue your presentation will be based on. From there you find sub-knowledge issues and more real life scenarios to support your claims and counter claims. is to think of a broad knowledge issue, derive sub-knowledge issues which you wish to explore and find real life situations from there. There are many ways to do your presentation. It can be a simple lecture, a power point presentation, (if your are in pairs) a dialogue, a role play ect. The entire presentation should be like a verbal essay, with a focused introduction introducing the main issues, your methodology and how the presentation is structured. A claim should be given first, evidence to support the claim, then the limitations of the claim or a counter claim. The conclusion should sum up the main points in the presentation, it is an opportunity to give your opinion (great for scoring marks on the Knower’s Perspective criteria). Presenting As with any presentation, practice makes perfect. Make sure you can be heard clearly and that you articulate yourself well. The nice thing about the presentation is that since it is verbal it allows you to create a lot of links. E.g. ‘referring back to the first slide of the presentation’, ‘this scenario is very similar to the tax the government is enacting next month isn’t it?’ Create a set of notes to aid you so that you know what you will be discussing next. With power points do not cram everything onto the slide, each slide should only have a max of 5 points, they should not be sentences. When showing pictures, make sure it covers the entire slide, what’s the point of having a picture when it's of minute size shoved in the corner? Most people are scared of the questions at the end, don’t be. The questions asked by your teacher are there to help you. If you’ve missed something in your presentation that is key to answering the knowledge issue, this is the opportunity to gain back marks. If you can’t answer the question simply make a statement or give an opinion. A classic way of avoiding questions is to make your own question, ‘That’s a very good question, but I think the main issue here is….’ But try to answer them because they are very likely to be beneficial. Secondly, the audience can ask questions too. Do not plant a question in the audience; it is obvious and creates a bad impression. © Keel, http://www.ibsurvival.com

  21. So, I am willing to make my TOK presentation about young football players from poor countries that are persuaded by big leagues to join them. I feel like I lack the ideas, so far I have this : *ethics : clubs use the fact that the players are poor, so they will be tempted to earn the big money promised to them ; clubs often don't include the fact that not all the players become stars thus rich ; as soon as clubs realise that the player won't be a star, they often lose interest, become less caring etc. (quote - The kids disappear into the anonymity of the nether regions rarely to be heard of again, right now some of these boys are just being traded like horsemeat.) *reason of club : the players from poor countries are easier to sign due to smaller interest than for English stars, they will initially agree to play for a smaller wage due to the fact that even what seems like a small money in Europe (the same applies to the local club - they might sell the next superstar for peanuts, this is a reason why many academies have losses - they spend money in player training but get a small return), might be incredible amount of money for them, it is argued that players are treated, as mentioned before, like horsemeat, because the attitude is rather business-like, the players are trained, then at the first chance sold to even bigger club for the biggest possible profit ; difference with local player - if the player fails to live up to expectations, club won't be blamed for ruining a local potential talent *reason of player : they think it can't really get worse than in their native countries, they go to big leagues due to poverty and willingness to fund their family, which is pretty often not well financed *belief : player has to believe that exactly he will the one emerging as a star, has to have belief in authority - scout/manager ; club has to have belief in the player since it has spent resources in scouting process, paperwork etc. *language : I don't believe there are no language barriers between the, let's say, Italian scout and the African talent ; the scout/manager has to have language skills in order to be able to persuade the player to leave everything in the native country and join the club Different opinions about sales of player: a) player is a slave, he gets sold from one club to another, tempted by money b) a poor player, who would otherwise struggle to make both ends meet, gets a chance to earn big money and is in a way saved Different opinions about the system of transfers: a) One could argue the system is flawed if a club can spend several years investing time and money into a player, only to have another club come in and offer that player a contract with them, when the club who has developed the player are not allowed to offer a deal themselves. b) If one day you have a son and raise him for fifteen years but then your neighbour comes knocking on your door and asks your son if he wants to come and live with him instead, and your son wants to go because this neighbour has a house twice the size of yours, drives a Mercedes (and another one in the garage) and will give him £50 a week pocket money, are you going to let him go? Yes! c) there is a flaw that allows players younger than 18 make such decisions
  22. So I'm still really confused about what exactly we have to do during TOK presentations and how we have to structure it, but one idea that I had was to explore different painting as my real life situation, or that one thing that happened where the two boys put a pair of glasses on the ground of an art gallery and everyone thought it was a piece of art. On e of the ideas I had to do for my KQ was: “To what extent do sense perception and emotion influence the value of art?" If this question good enough to explore to get a high grade? I have some stuff I could take about with it, but it doesn't sound as fancy as some of the ones I've been seeing online as really good. Any help is appreciated!! :)))
  23. Hi everyone! I would highly appreciate it if anyone would like to share their previously done TOK presentations from last year or later. This is the first year that my teacher is teaching TOK and our class kind of needs some presentation videos to see the proper way to present. We've currently seen around 4 videos and none of the presentations were from last year so they're all using the old format. Any recordings of any TOK presentations would really be helpful for our class to learn about making an A grade TOK presentation. I do hope to receive some good presentation videos that my class could see and learn from. Thank you in advance for anyone who sends a link to their presentation. - K
  24. Hey everyone! So for my upcomming IOP in 2 weeks, I am planning to do one on Wide Sargasso Sea. So far I managed to form a thesis of "The author Jean Rhys presents the theme of Alienation through exclusion of the characters in the novel based on race, wealth and status, appearance and shared cultural symbols and values." I chose this thesis primarily after going through interrelationships between the characters of the novel. Primarily, these factors in my thesis are brought through: poverty, appearance (creole). Alienation that leads to destructive acts in the novel - Anette marries mr mason driven by exclusion in society which leads to the loss of her son, home and sanity Daniel Cosway alienated from society obsessed to avenge his step father hurting antoinette's relationship through letters Antoinette is alienated from her own self by madness and her own husband chnages her name (identity affected). Overall, are there any pointers I should work on and I am open to any suggestions for a good hook and better way to incorporate my thesis with my evidence Thanks
