    RLS for Essay

    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^^

    Problems of Knowledge...

    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.
  6. I have not had a TOK lesson so I just want to know so I can started very soon.
  7. Can we please discuss these titles, specially TITLE 2 !!!!!!!

    TOK TITLES 2019 POLL

    Please answer to the poll
  9. 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?

    TOK Essay AOKs

    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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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..

    Thoughts on ManageBac?

    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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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?

    Ethics

    What is ethical knowledge?
  17. Also, no continual placement of knowledge questions throughout the essay, instead focusing on one knowledge question.

    TOK breakdown

    This might seem like an extremely idiotic question, but I was wondering whether someone could give me a basic breakdown of what TOK is like? I just want to gauge whether this is a course I am going to pour hours of work into or is it a more laid back class than say..Ib Bio? As a disclaimer I know ANY IB class is rigorous, I just want to know the basic syllabus and workings of TOK. Thanks!
  19. 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: β€œTo 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!! :)))

    TOK QUESTION 1

    I need help with my Tok essay. I chose question 1: The classification systems steer the acquisition of new knowledge. I need some arguments in favor. I do now that the classification is an essential tool for the study of knowledge.

    TOK KQ advice

    Hi guys, I am new to IB survival, hearing all these great things about the website, i decided to join. I wanted to ask help on improving my KQ,. My TOK is based on RKS as well. I am reading an RLS based on Kosher phones and how they have been accepted by religious people (ultra-orthodox). The KQ is have generated is: how does RKS influence one's understanding of knowledge Based on the given RLS, do you think that this is a good KQ or is there any way to further improve it. Thanks :)
  22. So, I have my final TOK Presentation this week and I was just wondering: what is the difference between a knowledge question and a knowledge issue? Or are they the same thing? My teacher never explained this to our class... πŸ™„
  23. Hi all, I just wanted to know how difficult it's going to be for me to study and succeed in IB. I'm currently studying in grade 10 and I'll most probably start studying according to IB's curriculum next year. I'm currently studying the Holt McDougal Modern Chemistry, English Literature/writing, Biology, and Phyiscs. The McGraw Hill Algebra 2 on top of social studies, Farsi literature/writing and Arabic. I find all of the subjects I'm studying relatively easy (except Farsi. Even though it's my mother language), and I aced all of my finals last term. But I'm kinda stressed to be studying IB as I have no idea about the difficulty level. The hl subjects that I'm gonna pick are biology, chemistry, Farsi and English (I have no idea whether it's gonna be A or B; it's mandatory to study Farsi and English hl at my school) I want to study medicine and I looked at dozens of university admission requirements for the said course; most of the universities I'm interested in require a minimum of 6 in bio hl and chem hl on top of an overall score of 38/45. As I said, I just want to know how much energy I'll need to exert on my studies and how difficult it'll be to meet the mentioned requirements. Your insight would be appreciated! Edit: Do I need to study physics as wrll to get into medicine? I'm already picking Math sl so not sure how that'll work.

    TOK topic SOS

    Hello, My TOK teacher won't answer my desperate emails about whether my KQ or topic is any good. The presentation is in 10 days and I'm alone struggling so bad in understanding the presentation. My KQ "To what extent does emotion derived from photographs affect the way historical knowledge is perceived?", from the RLS photographs of Vietnam War which caused the American public to see the sadness of the war and protest against it. I am having a difficult time choosing AOKs and WOKs, but I thought finding a straight-forward wording for the topic would give me some guidance. So, I thought of "Effect of Emotion Evoking Photographs" for the topic, but is that clear? I could then figure out the knowledge claims in a format as such "How can we use historical knowledge and (WOK) to explore the effect of emotional photography?". Any help is greatly appreciated I have never been so lost and scared about an assignment!
