We examine the advantages of the Scientific Method in IB Theory of Knowledge classes, as wells as its problems.

The TOK textbook, however, doesn’t do a very good job (I think, at least) in explaining its potential problems in a very accessible way.

I’m finally getting around to creating a new list. Typically, after learning about the Scientific Method and its benefits, I have students analyze of its problems, make a poster, create an oral presentation and perform a skit – all taking no more than two minutes.

In addition to the TOK textbook, here are the resources I’m using to create my own list. Feel free to suggest more:
