    Course Description and Important Information for Knowers

    The design of the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) class supports reflection, inquiry, and research.  Students must come to class each day with open minds and tolerant attitudes. 

    We will investigate the four ways of knowing (perception, reason, emotion, and language) and the areas of knowledge (mathematics, human sciences, natural sciences, literature, ethics, and the arts) as we explore the basis of "knowledge."

    Check the course description to see what we will be doing for the next two semesters:
