Summer Task for ToK 

Dear students, 

In September you would be introduced to the exciting world of Theory of Knowledge. In order to get head start we want you to: 

 

Watch and enjoy any two of the three films, Vantage PointDead Poet's Society and Inception. 

 

Task 1 

While watching these films, pause the video at regular intervals and note down  thought-provoking scenes by transcribing the dialogue for the scene—some of these scenes could be about ideas you strongly agree with and a few scenes that made you think or question. 

 

Task 2- Post watching 

After having watched the films express your opinions about at least 2 of the following questions: 

  1. What are stereotypes? What leads to their creation? 

  1. How are perspectives generated? 

  1. According to you what is the definition of "knowledge"? Is it possible to use it as a synonym for education? Why or why not? 

  1. What do you think is more powerful--imagination or memory? Why?
