    TOK!!!

    Okay, so for the knowledge question, I had some trouble coming up with a question. At one point, the ToK teacher wanted an update on my presentation and she wasn't satisfied with my knowledge question, so she basically helped me come up with one. After a few days, I realised the KQ that my teacher had given me is from the prescribed title for the ToK Essay of the same year and so I got worried and approached her. When I told her about the issue, she said she'll check and make sure for me. So after another few days, I went up to ask her if it was fine using that question and she said it was. I forgot all about it up until now and I'm so paranoid that I'll lose my diploma because of it. I overthink a lot of scenarios in my head and it's been bugging me a lot recently and it isn't helpful as I'm having my final exams next week. I know that everything I've used from others is cited but I still get scared from plagiarism for some reason (??). Is it likely that the IB will eliminate my diploma because of this? I'm really scared and worried because I'm actually trying really hard with my studying and I don't want it to go down by the drain just like that.
  2. Hi guys, im doing my Tok presentation based on the execution of schizophrenic people who were murderers( in pakistan ) and would like to elaborate on this, like to what extent is it appropriate to execute people who are suffering from schizophrenia. side note-the Supreme Court in Pakistan states that schizophrenia is not a mental disorder and hence have put many people on the death row who are suffering from schizophrenia. Im struggling on forming my KQ and understanding which AOK's and WOK's would go with this, It would mean a lot if someone could help me forming my kq and choosing the aoks and woks https://www.justiceinitiative.org/voices/pakistan-s-courts-are-failing-acknowledge-mental-illness here's a link to the article
  3. Hi, I am having a lot of trouble when it comes to choosing my real life situatuion. I don´t even know how real the real life situaution has to be. Allow me to explain, my teacher told us that it has to be real, as in it can happen in real life, but that doesn´t mean it IS really happening. The more I try to explain it it gets even more confusing, what I am trying to say is that I don´t know whether the real life situation has to be an example of something that actually exists or if it can be about a situation the could hypothetically happen. Because I want my RLS to be related to memory and how memory changes with time, and how little details start to blur and also how we might be convinced that something actually happened when it never did. But I can´t think of a real life situation and I still don´t know if I can make it up or If I have to use an actual RLS. If anyone could help me I will be eternally grateful to you.

  6. Hello, thanks in advance for your answer. My friend has a very high probability of repeating one year. Under what conditions does a person stay in the second year in ib (11 grade) ? If in the first term (grade 11) the student receives 1,2,2,7,5,6. And in the third term (grade 11 ) he has 7,6,7,3,2,4 + A (TOK) will my friend have repeat a grade ? (Retention one year ) (CAS has done ) My friend is very nervous about this, but I don't know anything about falling conditions in ib. Thank you 😊
  7. Today, we started a discussion in TOK class about psychology being a science or not. What do you think?
  8. If anybody needs help with their ToK essay or presentation, contact me.
  9. 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 😣
  10. how can emotion and lanuage affect shared knowlege? also like 0n different cultures. I also need to look at the indigenous knowledge side 2. Some one please help me in detail. my tok teach r dislikes me and she would never help me bc i'm bad at tok? ugh
  11. 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!
  12. 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?
  13. So our Tok teacher (even after Tok essay and presentation) forces us to come to tok class @7am and makes us do assignments + projects. Our current project is trying to come up with criteria for WoK and come up with a brand new WoK that's NOT part of the existing 8. Any help would be appreciated as to help with coming up with ideas to a criteria/new WoK.

  15. Hello, Right now we are working on creating our final TOK presentations and I am very stuck.. For my last presentation I talked a lot about ethics and how that can effect our judgement, I have done my presentations around ethics and emotion and I feel that I'm pretty strong in that AOK and WOK.. My starter KQ: How can a lack of knowledge justify unethical conduct? What can I fix and why? What kind of RLS can I use for this type of question? Thank you.
  16. I don't really know how to create a good KQ with this information.. Please help me! RLS: "Jilly Juice" - A juice that is created by Jillian Epperly, claims that it can cure "Candida" the "root "of all diseases. It's created with very dangerous amounts of salt and cabbage, and many people believed that it cured them of their disease. Many also claimed that it worsened their condition. According to doctors and health specialists, when consumed everyday, it can kill you; but her followers believe otherwise and continue consuming the juice. source: https://www.newsweek.com/jillian-mai-thi-epperly-claims-cabbage-juice-cures-autism-homosexuality-and-909737 AOK: Natural Science / Religious Knowledge Systems /Ethics starter KQ: To what extent can our emotions affect our perception of knowledge? How can I change this? ^ what can I do to make it better? -People are blinded by their beliefs and chose to believe someone that doesn't have the credentials to prove that it is true -experts can prove that her claims are false -People are looking for a solution to solve their problems, emotion drives them to disregard evidence if you have any more advice or other things to fix please let me know. Thank you! -M
  17. I am going to perform a TOK presentation and decided it would concern the censorship of offensive language or curse words. My focus is going to be on how 'the freedom of art" and the ethical issues, meaning the freedom to express oneself and to protect (ex. underaged people). Meaning it will mainly concern censorship (language) in art. However I am confused as to how to formulate my KQ. Which one of the following knowledge questions should be more appropriate to the TOK Presentation: To what extent is art censorship justified by the government? To what extent should the government censor television? To what extent is censorship in television industry justified? To what extent does censorship of language affect our knowledge? Should offensive language be censored? What is the relationship between language and ethics? To what extent should offensive language be censored? Any better ideas?
  18. 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?
  19. What do I have to do to fulfil the "with reference to two areas of knowledge" part of a prescribed essay title in TOK?
  20. 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..."?
  22. 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
  23. 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..
  24. 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?
  25. 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
