TOK Tidbits... (Theory of Knowledge)

How do we know what we know?

This is the basis for the IB program and is the unanswerable question. My friend Todd Mayville teaches TOK successfully at the high school and I have "borrowed" the theme for looking into real-time situations where science and society clash! My students have blogged about various themes including:

the scale of chemistry

ethics of stem cell research

what is a scientific theory

understanding the human tragedy of cancer


genetic testing

when medical research goes wrong

and others.....

Still trying to fit in more blogging time and be compliant with the daily pacing guides / T4S strategies..... Am still working on that... ;)
