Theory of Knowledge
What is it?
How do we teach it?
What do you know?
On 2 post-it notes, write down 2 different things that you know. Add them to the appropriate poster: Experience, Skill, or Fact.
Types of Knowledge
Experiential Knowledge/ Knowledge by Acquaintance
Skill-based Knowledge/ Practical Knowledge
Factual Knowledge/ Knowledge by Description
Shared vs Personal
HOW do you know?
Go back to the knowledge you placed on your posters. Write down how you learned those particular pieces of knowledge.
Ways of Knowing
In Your Unit
Choose one piece of knowledge that you will teach in your first DP unit (experience, skill, or fact). Connect it to 1 or 2 Ways of Knowing; make note of this connection.
When you finish, take a short break.
You've all been assigned a letter that corresponds to a hypothesis. Convince your tablemates that your hypothesis is correct.
