As regular readers know, in addition to teaching various classes to English Language Learners and to mainstream ninth-graders, I teach the International Baccalaureate Theory of Knowledge course. I also regularly share TOK resources here on the blog, and I think it’s pretty popular among TOK teachers around the world.
This post is my regular “quarterly reminder” that, in addition, I accumulate links to articles and resources on the Delicious bookmarking site, and now have over 2,000 categorized into the all the TOK “Ways of Knowing” and “Areas of Knowledge.” I typically add about twenty or so new ones each month.
Yesterday I learned about two new videos that could be added to that list.
The first is the latest installment of one of the videos I already show in the lesson — basketball star Kyrie Irving pretending to be an elderly man playing a pick-up game. I’ve embedded the new video below.
The second is a Spanish television station having a woman basketball star impersonate a man in a men’s soccer game.
One assignment I learned about at my original IB Theory of Knowledge training was having groups of students invent a classroom appropriate product and have them create a short commercial four of the fallacies that we have studied. I have each group show their video, and then they call on people to identify the fallacies used in it.
