TOK is an enquiry into the ways of knowing and different types of knowledge. This course challenges students to reflect critically on the methodologies of the six IB curriculum areas. Students will develop skills to identify and then evaluate belief and knowledge claims. Students will also reflect upon their IB experiences and will integrate and evaluate what they know within a larger knowing community. This course is required for all IB Diploma Programme candidates and mandates a minimum of 100 hours spread over 3 terms in grades 11 and 12. The assessment includes an essay (1200-1600 words) worth 66% and a presentation worth 33% of the IBO grade. International Baccalaureate courses are open to any Granite Bay High School student. ALL students enrolled in IB courses are required to complete the entire course and sit for the external exams in May.
