Presentation Is this a good knowledge question for my TOK presentation?

Recommended Posts

My real life situation is the passing of a bill that permits the discrimination of LGBT people. MY knowledge question is currently "How does authority affect bias?" Is this a good knowledge question?

I think that you are on the right track, but the thing about TOK is that it's completely about knowledge, and KQ's are supposed to be about knowledge, general, and placed in TOK terms. Something you could think about is thinking about why these discriminations happen, or the human sciences behind the response to authority. One example, and this could be developed as well, but it would be good to go off of, is "To what extent does authority create a basis for bias?" or "How do the opinions of authority influence the general population?". Again, these are not quite there either, but I think that they will help you with your presentation. Another tip I could give is to make sure you stay out of the ethical part of it, because TOK and Ethics are like oil and water- they don't mix, its complex, and you'll get no where. Good luck!
