  1. With our teacher support packs, you buy great teaching ideas

We have included a variety of activities to cater to all learning needs and styles:

  • Purely discussion-based activities (such as debates, discussions with a verdict, mingling activities, court role-plays) as well as more structured activities (such as jigsaw reading, unscrambling tasks, gallery walks)
  • Activities designed for different levels of learning: basic understanding of key concepts (such as revision quizzes, guessing games, sorting tasks) and higher-level skills of formulating arguments and connecting ideas (such as formulating implications, designing mind-maps, criticizing examples, debates)
  • Activities designed to develop skills necessary for final assessment (TOK essay and TOK exhibition)
  • Activities designed to explore students’ creative side, such as TOK freestyle rap or explaining TOK in a text message to your parents. 

In the design of lessons, we follow the CHACER model that is based on modern pedagogical principles. Each lesson is designed so that students gradually move through three levels of learning: (1) knowledge and comprehension, (2) understanding and application, (3) thinking in the abstract. Each lesson has differentiation built into it. 

Look at our lessons and use as is, or draw inspiration from them and design your own!

  1. If necessary, you can easily combine our materials with your own

Everything in our Teacher Support Packs is customizable should you wish to change it. We have included editable versions of all documents. Lesson plans are designed in such a way that you can regulate the amount of time spent on each activity, depending on your class dynamic. Different activities will cater to different learning preferences. 

There’s always a little more than necessary so that you have some flexibility of choice!
