These essays show a level of personal engagement and reflection that make them outstanding responses to prescribed titles from 2008 and 2009 examination sessions. All essays have been reproduced in their entirety; examiner comments and school or candidate identifiers have been removed where necessary but no errors have been corrected. Teachers are encouraged to use this publication to inspire their students as they research and write their own essays. The range of examples of excellent work demonstrated here should help students to develop their own individual responses to future prescribed titles.
I briefly mention some points to consider for each title below; however, the personalised service I offer is tailored to each student.
You should be very wary of simply repeating phrases and words from ToK websites.
In particular, basing your essays on downloaded templates carries considerable risks. First, you don't know with whom you are dealing.
Secondly, your essay will share the same structure as many others and will likely be considered as plagiarised. As an experienced philosophy and ToK examiner I know how easy it is to identify essays with a common source.
At any time, you can access free podcasts, videos, and articles, relevant to your IB ToK essay or presentation, from the site's social media pages.
The posts also provide links to discussions of WoKs, AoKs and real-life examples; so it's worth following or liking them:
