  1. 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
  2. Hi guys. I just want to make sure whether this is a good knowledge question: "To what extent do ethics play a role in the justice system?". Is this a good KQ or should I change it to something else?
  3. Hey guys! In my TOK presentation, I am talking about how science advances and the ethical issues that come with that advancement. What can I state as a claim and counter claim [in terms of ethics and advance], when I talk about certain experiments that were undertaken in psychology to find more about how humans work? Such as the Milgram Experiment, and the blue eyes, brown eyes classroom experiment?
  4. With reference to one or two organisations that you have studied, discuss how organisational objectives may differ in two cultures you are familiar with. Any help answering will be appreciated
  5. Ethical theories are proposed by different philosophers illustrating dilemmas, often in the mind experiment. What about ethical facts? Are ethical facts = ethical judgment?
  6. I have to do my TOK presentation in 3 weeks and I'm really struggling to come up with a main KQ. I have my RLS and my AoK is ethics. I have a few KQs that I thought of but I don't think they're quite right. Help please? RLS: For 20 years, single mother Donella Knox cared for her severely autistic daughter, Ruby. For years, she fought to get the best health care for her that she could. Donella Knox felt endlessly helpless, and hopeless, about Ruby's deteriorating health and suffering. She travelled across New Zealand, and even to the United States, seeking expert help. In May 2016, Donella Knox murdered her autistic daughter, Ruby. In December 2017, Donella was sentenced to four years in jail for Ruby’s murder. Potential KQs: To what extent is emotion a reliable way of knowing in ethics? How do we use emotion and reason to justify what is ethically correct? To what extent does a person’s knowledge play a part in making moral judgement? -if the judge hadn’t known Donella’s backstory and been able to sympathise with her, would her have given her a harsher sentence? Context. To what extent is emotion and reason used to contextualise moral judgement? Is shared knowledge necessary for making moral judgements? To what extent is it right to consider emotion in the legal system? How do we accept or reject what is right and wrong in law based on ethics?
  7. Hi, all From recent news and the general reception of large corporations capitalizing on consumers' access to the internet, my partner and I have decided on the topic of net neutrality for our presentation Here's our real life situation: https://www.wired.com/2015/11/comcast-may-have-found-a-major-net-neutrality-loophole/ Subsequently, we were able to form our main knowledge question to be answered, which was: To what extent does the medium of communication impact the relationship between personal and shared knowledge? After some in-depth brainstorming and analysis of our real-life situation, we can definitely see that our RLS has significant perspectives stemming from the Human Sciences - more specifically Economics. From there we were able to move on to ethics i.e. Is it fair that companies provide users internet access in exchange for behavioral data? How can one, using the utilitarian framework in ethics, assess the net 'utility' that each stakeholder gains? Although I think we have progressed significantly into the knowledge question, we are still uncertain due to the lack of WOKs involved in the answering and discussion of our KQ. Subsequently, we have come to the thought that the markers will penalize us for this. Can anyone having attempted one or more marked TOK presentations testify/refute this claim? If it is true, we are thinking of switching to the (perhaps) more commonly done, and hence safer, topic of censorship If false, how would you suggest that we approach our KQ such that we are able to integrate WOKs? (If discussion of WOKs is even necessary?)
  8. My Knowledge Question is To what extent are we morally obligating to follow others ethical theories?" do you think this question works? Why or Why not. How can I improve it? My RLS are Trump and how he has his own ethical theory and maybe we should accept him. My other RLS is how a shooter believe what he does is justified and ethical.
  9. My RLS is a police violence in Louisiana that caused a death of an innocent man named Alton Sterling and KQ is To what extent can we trust the authority figures. I'm really confused with what my claims and counterclaims could be, and what evidence i could use to support my claims concerning FAITH AND HISTORY ?
  10. Just how should I approach a presentation on ethics, I have constantly been warned against this Aok but I want to give it a shot? What should I do right and what should I avoid?

  13. I am about to finish up on my TOK presentation. Now, we are working on the TOK presentation planning form. The form has a 500 word limit, which it extremelyyyyy difficult to cut down to. I had to remove one RLS (it was not a very strong on anyways). However, is it alright if I am basing it on just 2 RLS? I can't fit it in anything all! A lot of other outlines on the internet seem to have 3 RLS. I am hoping to move up to a 9 or 10 out of 10 for the presentation but am unsure whether if I should have at least 3 RLS. Thanks in advance for your reply, I really do appreciate it!!!
  14. Hey everyone So im working on my tok presentation and i came up with this kq, "to what extent should consequences be considered when determining what is right and wrong?" My teacher has approved it but now i am stuck in spring break not knowing how to correctly approach this.

  15. Hello! I have just started meetings with my supervisor for my ee, we are both quite confident with 2 of my topics, because of that I'm on a knife-edge. I have no idea which one to pick, one is related to thermoreceptors but then I'd have to test on people (wouldn't bring any harm), and the other one is related to sleeping patterns/quality but then how do I test that and how do I define the terms. I really need help...
  16. I am doing a TOK presentation on the banning of religious symbols in France. My real life situation is this banning as a whole, but more recently in 2014 a Muslim student in France was ordered to remove her hijab during a class at the La Sorbonne university. I am trying to think of a good knowledge question but can't come up with anything. I think I want it to have something to do with ethics and religion. Here is a link to my real life situation: http://english.alarabiya.net/en/perspective/features/2014/10/01/Hijab-controversy-returns-in-France-after-student-asked-to-remove-her-thing-.html Can anyone help?

  22. Starting to plan CAS projects and activities . I reached moat of the learning outcomes already, but was not sure how to do the Ethics one. It reads as follows: "Recognize and consider the ethics of choices and actions: Students show awareness of the consequences of choices and actions in planning and carrying out CAS experiences." Ideas for projects reaching this leaning outcome, or just help on figuring out what it is would be helpful. thanks
