I’ve previously posted what my ELL Geography students and what my ELL History students (as well as my mainstream ninth-grade classes) are doing for their semester finals next week. I’ve also published what my ELL students are doing for their English “final.”

I thought some readers might also be interested in what my IB Theory of Knowledge students are doing for theirs, too.

I’ve picked what I think are five of the more accessible TOK essay prompts from previous years and have created this First Semester Final. Students will pick one and write their response.

I’ll also be taking them to the Computer Lab for a period to quickly review TOK essay prep materials we’ll be going over much more extensively later this year — just so they can get a taste of it prior to the final.

I’m just telling students to try their best and not get too worried about the final — I’m viewing much more as a formative assessment than as a summative one.
