Today was the last time I will be seeing anything TOK related! I handed in my last version of my TOK essay and can not believe I will not have any more TOK lessons for the rest of my life. Just feels amazing !

When picking the title, ask yourself:

  • What does each title want you to do?
  • Do any of the titles link strongly to matters that your class covered in depth and detail?
  • Do any of the titles suit your style of learning, for example, requiring a more critical and rational, or more creative and imaginative, approach?
  • Would any of the titles allow you to focus on your academic strengths and interests, for example, the AOKs you are doing at a higher level?
  • Would any of the titles allow you to focus on the WOKs that you prefer to use to gain knowledge?
  • For any of the titles, could you draw on your Extended Essay research, or your CAS activities?
  • Would any of the titles allow you to focus on activities and projects that interest you outside of school?

When writing the essay, consider the following:

  • How will you use the¬†key terms¬†– what¬†meanings¬†will you have for them?
  • What is the¬†knowledge issue¬†for your essay? Exactly how might you word it?
  • How will you make sure you¬†achieve the tasks demanded¬†by the ‘action terms’ (the terms that demand you to do something i.e. ‘examine’)?
  • What exactly does the¬†title mean to you? How can you explain this to others?
  • What¬†ambiguity¬†might the title contain? How will you¬†interpret¬†it?
  • If there are any¬†assumptions¬†in the title will you¬†agree¬†with,¬†or¬†question, them?

And remember to Explore rather than Argue
