Classic indigenous societies lessons

Our classic indigenous societies lessons are classroom-ready, driven by real-life situations, and filled with the ideas of the most influential thinkers from the past and present.

Our classic lessons are perfect for teachers who want a straightforward TOK structure, or those who want to augment the BQs with materials that delve more directly into the course. Start with the briefing paper to give you a preview of this aspect of the course.

To access the classic TOK lessons, become a faculty member of the site. You can see our approach by downloading the free sample lessons below. They offer an insight into how we introduce a topic (technology), cover nature and scope (the natural sciences), look at methods and tools (language), evaluate perspectives (knowledge & the knower), and consider ethics (history). You can also download our first lesson for AI-tools and TOK.

Help your learners 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.
