Introduction to the Presentation
The internal component to the TOK assessment comes in the form of a presentation. They count for 1/3 of your overall Theory of Knowledge score and they will be assessed by the TOK staff at the school. The goal of this presentation is to allow students to demonstrate their understanding of the knowledge issues through a topic that they find interesting. Each presentation can be a maximum of 10 minutes per student involved and groups are limited to no more than 2 students per group. While you will be given time in class to research, plan, develop, rehearse and deliver your presentations, you will be expected to do significant work outside of class. In order to maximize your performance on this component of the course, it is strongly recommended that you make yourself familiar with the assessment criteria and utilise the resources provided (see below).
