TOK Presentation

  1. 1. How to approach case studies<br />And turn them into great presentations.<br />
  2. 2. A contemporary issue: The basis for your presentation<br />Choose a contemporary issue that you can relate to.<br />If you have to spend 5 minutes explaining the situation / event to your audience – choose something else!!!<br />What is the significance of this event for you the world, for your community, and for YOU as a knower.<br />
  3. 3. Knowledge Claims<br />What knowledge claims are you making about this event?<br />i.e. What do you claim to know about it as the truth?<br />
  4. 4. What is the basis for this knowledge claim?<br />What evidence is there?<br />What else do we know from AOK that might support this claim?<br />What degree of certainty is there in this claim?<br />
  5. 5. Counter-claims / different perspectives<br />How could someone disagree with your claim or try to disprove it? (this forms a counter-claim.)<br />What alternate ways could someone consider your claim?<br />These alternative views are different perspectives – they do not directly try to disprove your claim.<br />
  6. 6. What Knowledge Issues come out of your claims? <br />What are the fundamental things you want to consider?<br />This will mostly involve WOK and such words as: reliable, justify, evidence, certainty, truth, doubt, belief, knowledge / know<br />They are very broad “umbrella” questions and should encourage evaluation:<br />“To what extent………” is a good way to start a KI<br />E.g. “To what extent can we be certain that reason gives us the truth in history?”<br />
  7. 7. Knower’s Perspective<br />Do you personally agree that this Knowledge Claim is justified?<br />How do you come to this decision?<br />What evidence do you use to reach this decision?<br />
  8. 8. Validity of Knowledge Claims<br />How valid are these knowledge claims in terms of determining the truth of what actually happened?<br />Are they realistic claims with supporting evidence?<br />
