Pre-ToK Makeup assignment for Junior Diploma Candidates

Students who missed Pre-ToK session #2 should do the following makeup assignment:

Read the book “A Drop of Water” from the Skyline Library.  When you’ve considered the knowledge in the book and compared that knowledge to what you knew already, respond to the following prompt:

“Knowledge gives us a sense of who we are.”  To what extent is this true in the Human Sciences and one other Area of Knowledge?

Your essay will be marked according to the assessment criteria published in the Theory of Knowledge guide. The focus of your essays should be on knowledge issues. Where appropriate, refer to other parts of your IB programme and to your experiences as a knower. Always justify your statements and provide relevant examples to illustrate your arguments. Pay attention to the implications of your arguments, and remember to consider what can be said against them. If you use external sources, cite them according to a recognized convention.

Respond to the title exactly as given; do not alter it in any way.

Your essay must be between 1200 and 1600 words in length, double spaced and typed in size 12 font.
