My ToK Presentations
My ToK presentation was on Education and the Human Sciences – Thanks Mr. Scheelbeek for sending me the video!
This following is the last oral presentation I did before the real oral presentation [seen above]. Our time limit was 5 minutes – it was just to refine our interpretations of the mark scheme. Again, I wasn’t explicit enough but I did provide a general basis of what is needed in a presentation on the human sciences – this is just to give a general gist of it (it really depends on what you say and how you make the links, however, I don’t have a recording of my presentation so this will have to do).
The following is the first presentation we did just four months into our course. We hadn’t learnt very much yet, I got 19/20 for this presentation. It gives a very general view of Ethics in relation to a topic I was passionate about – also, credits to Michael Sandel for most of the ideas behind it! If you want to do well doing a presentation on Ethics, be sure you don’t lapse into giving a list of points and counterpoints from different schools of thought – make it more than that. Our ToK teacher always emphasised providing criticisms and personal interpretations of these theories, and how they affect us in the bigger picture.
