The Best Resources For Teaching & Learning About Plato’s Allegory Of The Cave



Many educators, including those of us who teach IB Theory of Knowledge courses, spend time on Plato’s Allegory of the Cave.

I’ve often shared on this blog how I teach about it, and included student-created videos of modern versions.

The School of Life today came out with a new video on the Allegory and, even though I don’t think it’s as good as other ones I’ve posted about, it did give me the idea that it’s time for a short related “Best” list.

I’ll begin with a link to my Theory of Knowledge class blog post, which has tons of materials, including those student-created videos I mentioned earlier…

Here are two posts where I describe my lessons:

Two Useful TOK Class Resources: Jigsaw Instructions & Allegory Of The Cave Videos/Evaluation Forms

Finally, here’s the video that was published today that I think is not as good as other videos on my class blog (but it’s still decent):

Feel free to suggest additional resources….
