Theory of Knowledge at Grenaa Gymnasium

In Theory of Knowledge you get to examine what knowledge is and how it is possible to know about the universe, nature, and societies and cultures in the past and present.

Theory of Knowledge teaches you to:
• See connections between academic subjects
• Understand basic research methods of different subjects
• Reflect critically on different perceptions of knowledge
• Reflect on the role of knowledge in your own culture and other cultures

The lessons

In the TOK lessons we use a textbook and we think about and discuss examples and cases from different areas of knowledge.
We have, for example, recently bought a small brain scanner which we will use to examine whether the brain is a machine leaving no possibility for a free will.
During the school year we also prepare for the exam.


For the final assessment in TOK you have to:
• Write an essay
• Give an oral presentation
