Thinking for Yourself

Our pre-DP ‘Thinking for Yourself’ course supports 14-15 year old students to develop critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration, and navigate the online and real worlds more effectively.

The 14 classroom-ready lessons introduce learners to a carefully curated range of brilliant thinkers and concepts, help them to acclimatize to TOK, and give them a powerful lexicon of knowledge-related terms.

The TFY lesson presentations

The TfY course consists of an introductory lesson, 12 lessons focusing on different ideas and concepts, and a concluding lesson. The lessons are extensively interlinked, but each one works as stand-alone learning experience. You can either deliver the lessons as a discrete course, or they can be deployed within different subject classrooms.

Only faculty members of the site have access to the TfY course. Follow this link to join in seconds, and gain access to all our resources for TOK. In the meantime, you can download the two sample lessons below, which will give you some idea of the course’s approach.

Turn all your learners into critical thinkers!

Our workshops demonstrate to all teachers – whatever their level, programme, or specialisation – how they can develop authentic critical thinking.

They’re engaging, jargon-free, and hands-on, and provide practical takeaways that can be applied in the classroom to help students become nuanced knowers about the world. Find out more here, and read our workshop brochure here.
