I have been teaching TOK for 17 years, and I wanted to let you know that I think the BQ resources I’ve been using so far this year are awesome! By exploring TOK concepts through well-chosen, unique and high-interest real-life situations, my students are engaged in ways they haven’t been before.Debbie, NEW YORK
Thanks so much for your resources. I just got through my first lot of students and 5 out of 14 got As! I did every webinar and used all of your resources and I recommend your site daily for the confidence it gave me to get going with the course.Katrina, JAKARTA
Your self-guided help is tops… I am almost getting better work with them working remotely than when we were together. Perhaps being forced to do their own thinking first, then only getting other perspectives when we GMeet to go over the week’s assignments, is creating a higher quality of reflection. Anyway, I just want to say a huge thank you (again).Michael, MAASTRICHT
I cannot thank you enough for the knowledge and immense insight I am gaining into TOK every time you mail me some fresh ideas and perspectives. Already I have gained more confidence in imparting the new syllabus and my students are tremendously inspired by the lessons. I owe all this to you and hereby record my sincere and heartfelt thanks for the improvement I’ve made as a TOK teacher.Lipi, KOLKATA
After 4 years of teaching TOK and using 3 different resources from different editors, I believe that your material along with the content posted on your website has allowed me to focus more on sharpening the capacity for reflection of the learners instead of just their retention of information. Keep up the good work.Taid, LOMÉ
Your website has provided me the grounding and confidence to do what is best for my students, not a one size fits all prepackaged curriculum from a textbook, but instead a course that is fluid, evolving, and meaningful. I feel so proud as I listen and watch my students discuss in the last moments of their senior year what really matters in their lives, in our world.Julie, ST AUGUSTINE
I just wanted to let you know how awesome a resource the self-guided versions of your already amazing BQ framework lessons are. Even more useful is the fact that as a full member I can adapt the resources to my teaching context. Thank you, thank you and once again, thank you for adapting the resources so quickly and so effectively for use in this way.Anthony, DUBAI
Thank you for all of this work. You have made my life so much easier, and I feel so empowered to have really rich conversations with my students. As a first time TOK teacher, I am learning so much with my students. Thank you for your wonderful resources, your attention to detail, your deep and abiding knowledge that I feel able to rely upon, and your generosity with your knowledge and skills.Kemble, JOHANNESBURG
I have taught TOK since 2003 and been an examiner since 2008. I also lead workshops in TOK. Your approach has been the most effective that I have experienced and I feel that I have improved my teaching to students as well as how to conference with participants in workshops because of the resources found here. Schools will feel better prepared for evaluation visits because of your resources for TOK across the curriculum. You combine practical solutions with attention to aspirational pedagogy and reflection.Douglas, TORONTO
Your support is superb. Best curriculum support of any course I have taught and essential for me at this early stage of delivering IB. In a way I am glad the 2022 curriculum change came in when it did because with my L6th I get to start ground up with other schools (sort of!) and I am using your resources adapted for our school.Richard, BRISTOL
