I'm redoing my TOK presentation, since I got a low mark for my previous one... My teacher thought I was too biased. My teacher said to me that I should come up with a real-life situation first and then derive the knowledge issue from it, he says it's not a good idea to come up with a KI first, he thinks it's a bad way to start. Now I'm finding it pretty hard to find such "real-life situation" to derive a knowledge issue from! So, recently I've read some articals about Obama seeking new taxes on the rich, and I'm thinking about using that as my real-life situation, and my KI would be something like "to what extent is it jutifiable/fair to tax the rich at higher tax rates?" However I'm really not sure whether it would be a good topic to write about... I'm quite uncertain of that, partly because me friend told me he thinks there's nothing much to write about on that...?My teacher said to me, the presentation would only be worth-resetting if I do find a good real-life situation to talk about, orelse I am just wasting my time... Can someone please help?????? Tell me what you think of the KI that I've came up with, what aspects I could possibly argue from or give me some advice of "good real-life situations" to derive a better knowledge issue?
