What do you think TOK is, and why does the IB make you take it?
The TOK stands for theory of knowledge. The IB makes us take it because it will be useful for us in the future. The TOK course will allow us to gain understandings and learn new skills. For example, TOK will allow us to have better communication skills. This is because it gives us the chance to start up new discussions and allows us to share ideas with each other. Communication skills is very important in our life since it is a skill that is needed no matter what, it will be needed in our future career. Secondly, TOK makes us reflect on ourselves. This is an important life skill since we are not always right. We can be wrong sometimes and we will need to reflect and improve ourselves. The IB wants us to take TOK since it will make us reflect on ourselves and find ways to develop ourselves into better human beings. By taking the TOK course, we are allowed the opportunity for ourselves to be more aware of ourselves and the way how we think and act. I think that the TOK course will change the way how I will think and reflect, which would be impactful towards how I act in the future. TOK will make us become better learners in the future.
