    2. What are knowledge Issues? • IB Definition: • ‘Knowledge issues are questions that directly refer to our understanding of the world, ourselves and others, in connection with the acquisition, search for, production, shaping and acceptance of knowledge.’ • In simple terms, questions that: • Question what we believe, our reasons for believing it and whether these are good reasons

    3. For example: • Of the four ways of knowing: Emotion, Language, Reason and Sense Perception, which do you think are more reliable and which are less reliable? Illustrate your answer with examples from at least two areas of knowledge.

    4. Characteristics of a Good Knowledge Issue: • Open question • Asks explicitly about knowledge • Uses concepts from ToK (specific ways of knowing/areas of knowledge etc) • Is precise in terms of the relationship between the ToK concepts mentioned

    5. Some More Examples • Questions not about what we know but how we know it TASK • For each knowledge issue, see if it meets the criteria mentioned on the previous page. • Try to develop your own knowledge issues and see if they meet these criteria.
