Readership : IB Theory of Knowledge students (Grade 11 - 12)


  • "I've read over a few of the activities and they seemed interesting and engaging. I like the introduction tips at the beginning of the book as well... explaining how the ideas in the book are used to start inquiry and begin discussions. I look forward to reading Skills and Practice! "

    --Jamie Lynn, Head of TOK, King High School, Florida

  • "I have reviewed the textbook and have found many elements helpful: alignment with the new TOK curriculum, variety of global perspectives and individual voices, wealth of discussion questions or questions for individual thought, and guidance on the assessments."

    --John Martin, TOK Teacher, Paxon School for Advanced Studies, Florida

  • "I have to say I like what I see. The book has been revamped completely and I think for the better. I am pleased to see that the language is teenage friendly: direct and with examples that they can relate to. There are a number of examples that I will certainly incorporate into what I do, for example the discussion activity on page 46."

    --Sheta Saha, IB Coordinator, Chatsworth International School, Singapore
