What fellow educators say about this toolkit:

"This is an indispensable teaching toolkit for anyone interested in teaching Theory of Knowledge (TOK) at the IB level. It is easy to use and very informative. The TOK teacher toolkit helps me get a better understanding of how to teach and how to help my students understand the subject. There are a lot of downloadable resources which can be used to teach the subject. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in teaching Theory of Knowledge (TOK) at the IB level. "

“My students have been asking me to teach them more about the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) and I wanted a resource that would help me explain the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) more effectively and efficiently. I tried searching the Internet, but there was just too much information out there, most of which was too complicated for my students to understand. Then I found this wonderful resource that helped me break down the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) into easy to understand components. This made it a lot easier to teach the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) to my students, who have now become more engaged and interested in the subject.”

Nicole Adams
