About the workshop

This workshop is designed for experienced theory of knowledge (TOK) teachers, Diploma Programme (DP) teachers who may help students with their TOK essays and assessments, school administrators and DP coordinators with an interest in TOK assessment.

 

Gain new strategies to help students elevate their TOK essay-writing skills, especially those related to argument, analysis and counter-claims, and learn how to better assess their work. In this workshop, you will explore “global impression marking” as applied to assessment and delve into the meaning of the TOK assessment rubrics from both the teacher and student point of view.

 

You will learn strategies that help students extract knowledge questions from prescribed titles and frame them effectively. You also will assess sample TOK essays to better understand the elements of what accomplished TOK essays look like, and learn experientially as you take on the task of writing a TOK essay based on a prescribed title.
