TOK resources

Welcome to our TOK resources section. Members will find a wide range of teaching and learning resources designed to help all members of your faculty draw on and deliver TOK, and give your students a genuinely life-changing experience.

If you’re looking for resources that will help your non-IB students, check out our Authentic Critical Thinking (ACT) section. These include resources for pre-DP students, and students following an alternative programme, such as A-Levels or AP.

Access the TOK teaching & learning resources

Access our resources for teaching and learning TOK via the buttons below. Most of the resources are only available to members of the site, but note that we’ve provided many sample resources for everyone to download and use.

The ACT/TOK teaching and learning pathway

Placing ACT at the heart of what we do enables us to create a learning pathway represented by the diagram below. We begin with resources for primary learners, move onto the middle years resources, and culminate in our resources for the TOK course (or, if your students are following a different educational programme our senior ACT resources).

Our resources are incredibly flexible, and can be plugged into any educational programme. You can draw on our middle and primary ACT resources to help prepare students for the TOK course within timetabled critical thinking classes, PSE lessons, or in optional extension periods outside the usual day – it’s entirely up to you.

Help your learners to exit their echo chambers!

Our online and in-person workshops offer the usual support for students writing the essay and exhibition, and TOK departments designing great courses.

But our training sessions go much further than this: by focusing on authentic critical thinking, they demonstrate how to help learners confront, rather than confirm, their biases and assumptions, and exit their echo chambers. This makes them accessible and relevant for all teachers, whatever their subject or programme. Read more here.
