Author and experienced Theory of Knowledge teacher, Michael Woolman, presents a fascinating insight into the ways in which we acquire knowledge. Michael’ s book is clearly written and aimed at a level accessible to students. The first edition of Ways of Knowing has been read and enjoyed by thousands of IB students.
The second edition of the book has many improvements including:
· a completely revised ways-of-knowing section.
· more exploration of emotion, and an additional chapter on Faith.
· advice on the problems of statistics.
· updated examples and suggestions for class discussions and activities.
· a completely new section giving assessment advice based on the March 2006 Curriculum Guide.
