Integrating Theory of Knowledge into your IB classes

Whether you are an experienced or novice Theory of Knowledge (TOK) teacher, or even if you have never taught the TOK course, this in-depth workshop will focus on how teachers of any IB subject can integrate elements of the TOK course into their classrooms. The sessions will focus on practical strategies teachers can use to create activities that explore TOK concepts whilst also helping foster rich discussions about course content in a range of subjects. We will consider how an understanding of the TOK course, its concepts and terminology, and the two assessments, can help students make connections between subjects and also create rich and vibrant classroom cultures.

Presented by Critical Agendas

Nathan Armstrong

 

With 15 years teaching experience, including VCE English, VCE Literature, IB Language A: Language and Literature and IB Theory of Knowledge, Nathan brings to his workshops and presentations a depth and breadth of experience that focuses on creating rich, robust and rewarding learning cultures and environments.

Nathan has worked extensively with Visible Thinking routines and ‘Cultures of Thinking’ frameworks from Harvard University’s Project Zero. Student work samples from his Year 7 English classes were published in the book ‘Making Thinking Visible How to Promote Engagement, Understanding and Independence for All Learners’. Nathan’s classroom culture and pedagogical approach were also featured in Ron Ritchhart’s book ‘Creating Cultures of Thinking: The 8 Forces We Must Master to Truly Transform Our Schools.’

Nathan’s workshops have the student at the centre and focus on the way classrooms represent cultures of learning. At the core of his understanding and work with others is the firm belief that when all learners feel welcome, known, recognised and challenged then great relationships and understanding can be fostered and nurtured.
