What is the TOK Essay?

This week the Grade 12 IB Diploma students at NISC complete a major milestone in their DP journey: the submission of the Theory of Knowledge (TOK) essay. This 1,600-word essay is the culmination of two years of reading, study and thought, centered around the question of “how do we know what we claim to know?”. Some people may feel that this question is either so obvious as to not warrant discussion, or so opaque as to be unanswerable. TOK students strive to uncover their own, and others’ cognitive biases, assumptions and intellectual blind spots in order to create a firm foundation on which to build their intellectual world as lifelong learners.

How we're teaching Northbridge students to advocate for themselves
As a teacher, a parent and a grade level leader at Northbridge International School Cambodia, I am a great proponent for teaching children to advocate for themselves. Self advocacy helps foster independence and success. Self advocacy means students speak up for themselves, ask for what they need, and ask for help. Many of our students have expressed low confidence in communicating with teachers and advocating for what they need.

Culture, gender roles and identity – insights from language learning at Northbridge
Learning a language in the IB involves much more than mastering vocabulary and grammar.

They learn how to communicate in a variety of contexts and have the opportunity to explore the role of language in ‘Identity and relationships’. The aim is that they develop sociocultural competences and can interact with sensitivity.

Why the house system at Northbridge is much more than a tribute to Harry Potter
