Theory of Knowledge Presentations 
Shall I teach you what knowledge is? When you know a thing, to recognize that you know it; and when you don’t know a thing, to recognize that you do not know it. That is knowledge. Confucius

On September 27th, 28th 29th and 30th the Little Theatre will be filled with Theory of Knowledge students completing their Internal  Assessment presentations for the course.  Students will be presenting investigative reports on various topics from the realms of art,  history, natural science, and the human sciences.      TOK students must explore the nature of their selected topic and critically evaluate beliefs and knowledge claims involved. These  findings must be communicated clearly in their presentations.     We cordially invite parents to visit the Little Theatre and witness/discover what these students have accomplished thus far in the  course.  Each student will be given a schedule and will present in one of the five sessions – either the morning or the afternoon slot  on one of these dates.  Each student will be required to be in attendance in the Little Theatre for the full session for his/her ToK  class so he/she may have an early arrival or late release depending on the schedule.  Please be aware that students cannot simply  arrive at the time scheduled for their particular presentation. The schedule and the presentation topics will be posted on the ToK  blog in the next few days.  http://tok.ism‐online.org/    We  encourage  parents  to  “drop  in”.    It  will  give  you  a  real  sense  of  what  the  Theory  of  Knowledge  course  is  all  about  and  the  opportunity to see your children in action.    Sincerely,  TOK Teachers  James Atkinson                            Wendy Gifford                                   Mike Relf  David Birchenall                           Dylan Marshall                                  Neil Woods
