During our study of the various AREAS OF KNOWLEDGE (Arts, History, Maths, Natural Sciences, and Human Sciences), you will be asked to curate and build a group website repository of various artifacts that will help us probe further in to the nature of each AOK and the knowledge issues associated with it.
1. You have already been asked to sign up for 1st and 2nd choices in the AOK. I tried to give you your first choice, though some students are going to be divided between two choices (therefore you will have fewer responsibilities for each group). I’ve also tried to pinpoint a focus within the TOK (such as architecture, design, literature, etc. in the Arts)
2. Here is the LIST OF YOUR ASSIGNMENTS by AOK and by CLASS PERIOD Those in PURPLE are assigned to more than 1 AOK.
3. What will you be doing? What’s required? Here are the PROJECT SPECS (please see vlogs below)
4. How will you manage the group and delegate jobs? Here’s a PLANNING DOC. Please download (make a copy) of this document and view the sample responses in yellow. Then you can delete them and add yours. Change the title and share with Mr. B in Google docs and/or on Diigo or email. (please see vlogs below)
5. How will you communicate with everyone? Check the color-coding on the list of assignments by class period, and you can see who to work with when we have face-to-face “studio” time in TOK class. You can also communicate in Diigo when your editors start a threaded topic. Use whatever other methods that work for you (social media, email, text, etc.)
6. When is it due? As the project specs sheet indicates, there will be mini due dates and checkpoints, but for the overall due date, final sites are due Dec. 7 (J3), Dec. 12 (D7), and Dec. 14 (N7). We can celebrate with a viewing party (cookies!)
