Resources for the TOK Class

New TOK Course

I taught the new course for the first time this past year. We only met twice a week and completed the Exhibition at the end of the year.

After accepting a job at a non-IB school, I will no longer be teaching TOK so further updates to this site will be less frequent.

You can also check out the work I’ve posted for other courses I have taught (and also no longer teach):

IB Global Politics

American Government

Economics

2021-2022 Year 1

Here is a folder of what I did in year 1 of the new course.

I started with the core unit and then two optional units and then the AOKs. I’m not sure I would necessarily focus on just two of the optional themes in the future. It may make sense to integrate them into the AOKs or find activities that connect to more than one optional unit.

We met twice a week for 50 minutes. Some of it is adapted from what I did in the past, some of it is borrowed from elsewhere on the internet. I liked the work on the intro unit. The knowledge and technology work was crappy.

Here is a link to the folder of all my resources for each of the themes.

Back to meeting 3x a week, 48 minutes each. Some new things not previously in the last two year 1 folders but a lot of overlap. This folder is being updated as I work through the class.

Our class has met 2x a week for the year, 48 minutes per class. Students will work on essays and presentations in Year 2. Check out my 2017-2018 Year 1 below. We met more frequently and completed the presentations last year. This year the administration cut time out of year 1 TOK.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing so many helpful resources. As a first-time ToK teacher, this is a real wealth of information, and some tremendous work.

  2. Thank you for the great resources! They have been very helpful especially now with the new syllabus creating so many challenges for a new ToK teacher!
