Over the summer, as a really useful review of the TOK course , you could enroll and complete
Unit 1 – Nature of Knowledge and Certainty: Lessons 1-2
This will very effectively review the central questions of the course and provide you with some focussed thinking and writing to complete, so that you are well-prepared to come back and tackle your final assessments. We shall be using this online course in class as well, so it will be very beneficial to have already completed unit 1. There are integrated assessments in the course, but I’d also be looking for evidence of your thinking in your journals when we come back in August.
