TOK Sessions Pack

We think our new TOK Sessions Pack is a truly special resource. It has grown way beyond its original scope, offers a brilliant series of lessons that bring TOK to life, makes students truly think, and brings defining ideas and theories into the classroom.

 
The original TOK sessions pack, which contained 85 different lesson plans on all aspects of the new TOK curriculum, was published in August 2013, and has been purchased by nearly 500 IB Diploma schools around the world. It is used by thousands of educators and students globally to learn and master TOK.
 
However, consistent with our belief that TOK is a dynamic course requiring constantly updated resources, and coverage on very the latest ideas on the way we view the world, we began to produce a new sessions pack at the end of 2015. With a range of exciting and innovative new features, and fresh new content, the New TOK Sessions Pack is one of the most effective resources currently available for any IB Diploma course.
