The ARTS and TOK
Transcript of The ARTS and TOK
The Arts Framework and Judging Art
How Can the Arts Teach?
Break up into four groups. Each group gets one of the two documents. Using the source and the source alone, be ready to report back to the class what you "know".
Context? Expectations? Sense Perception? Emotion?
IS THIS Good ART?
Due Friday, November 21in electronic format through Turnitin.
"The whole point of any TOK assessment is to deal with Knowledge Questions" -TOK Guide
Art? Good Art?
Criteria for Judging art
3 Major Criteria
Reaction of the Audience
Create Your Own Rubric
In groups of 4, you will need to create a rubric for judging art. Use intention, quality, and response of spectator as your criteria. Come up with one other criteria you think is also important to judging art. Make sure to write in the style of the IB criteria. You will use this criteria later in the unit, so do a good job with it.
Public Gay Sex! Art?
Is the young man who plans to lose his virginity in a public sex act creating a work of art? Why or why not? Does it meet the criteria you outlined in your rubric?
What is a Knowledge Question?
A good knowledge question deals with how knowledge is constructed, as opposed to a subject specific question of fact.
Knowledge Question or Not Knowledge Question?
How do physicists use theoretical predictions to create knowledge?
Knowledge Issue Chart
Work together in groups of 2 to complete the Knowledge Question Chart on the Knowledge Question section of the Weebly
Focus on the mechanisms & methods that produce knowledge
Usually contain WOKs and TOK key words
Are oftentimes general in
evidence, certainty, bias, belief, truth, interpretation, values, objective, subjective, technology
What is the God Particle?
What is the conflicting role of reason and emotion in the construction of history?
How can a mathematical model give us knowledge even if it does not yield accurate predictions?”
Will Africa experience significant population growth?
How do we know if serial killers are born or made?
In what ways does the unreliability of evidence affect knowledge in the human sciences?
How does the placebo effect work?
In what ways do cultural values influence ethical interpretations?
How do we know this activity is getting close to completion?
Look over "Real Life Situations to Knowledge Questions". Find a newspaper article/real life situation in the arts and come up with two good KQs.
How is art created?
What is the methodology of the artist?
Are based on a Real Life Situation
Discussion: How does each source convey knowledge?
Is it necessary to know context in order for art to be effective at conveying meaning?
What are the benefits and negatives of each?
IS ART A USEFUL MEANS OF TRANSFORMING SOCIETY?
What makes a Good TOK essay?
A KNOWLEDGE QUESTION related to the essay prompt/real life situation!
Exploration of differing perspectives concerning the KQ.
Solid, unique real life examples through which you explore the KQ.
An understanding of the importance/implications of the KQ.
ANSWERS THE QUESTION POSED!!!!
Focus on how these perspectives are constructed through the WOKs
A critical look at your own perspective
Examine the justifications and assumptions offered to support these perspectives
IS THIS Good ART?
Why the difference in audience reaction?
Why the difference in audience reaction?
TOK ESSAY EXEMPLAR
Read the first two pages of the essay, annotating/highighting where the student does something from the list above!
Look at the Ways of Knowing and rank them in order of importance in relation to the creation of art. Are there any that are not used? Can you say with cerainty which is the most important?
How does the methodology of the arts compare to the methodology of the sciences?
What is the Relationship between art and technology?
REAL LIFE SITUATIONS
In this unit, we have looked at RLSs like the violinist playing in the Metro, the art student having sex in the name of art, and Picasso's Guernica and related them to TOK and looked into possible KQs. Now I want you to find some interesting RLSs that could be explored through TOK. Find some unique RLSs, look at how they relate to the Arts Framework, and come up with some ideas of how you could explore them in a TOK way!
Find two RLSs and come up with one good KQ related to each
What TOK aspects could be discussed based on this RLS?
WHY WOULD PEOPLE BUY STOLEN ART IF THEY COULD NEVER SHOW IT TO ANYONE ELSE?
ARTS ESSAY FEEDBACK
Reflection: Look over the essay criteria and give yourself a grade. What do you think you did well, what do you think you need to improve on? Did you feel adequately prepared to do this assessment? What could the teacher have done better to help you prepare?
Overall, a good first effort!
Make sure you do what the question asks.
Make sure you have a KQ stated in your introduction.
Have a thesis that answers the question!
Put KQ and word count on title page.
Include pictures of artwork you are referencing.
Eliminate unclear/confusing wording by proofreading. KISS!
Please use at least 1.5 spacing so I can write comments.
Use unique examples.
Keep it relevant!
Go around the room and rank the pieces of art. 1= Piece you would most consider good art, 10= piece you would consider the worst piece of art/not art. Leave a comment on each as to how you justify your position. Only use each number 1-10 ONCE.
THE HUMAN SCIENCES
THE NATURAL SCIENCES
INDIGENOUS KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS
RELIGIOUS KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS
If you could come up with four criteria for judging art, what would they be?
You should have a thesis that clearly answers the question and outlines your argument in the opening paragraph
HOMEWORK REFLECTION: IS REASON THE BEST WAY TO JUDGE ART? WHY OR WHY NOT? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING REASON? WHAT ARE ITS LIMITATIONS?
Significance to me?
Significance to my community?
Significance to the world?
Put question in context
Define terms that NEED to be defined
Introduce Knowledge Question
Give a thesis/explanation of your argument (NOT "In this paper I will discuss....")
PARAGRAPH STRUCTURE: PEE!
P: POINT- An argumentative point related to your thesis/knowledge question
E: Example- An example/Real life situation that highlights your point
E: Explanation- An explanation of how your example relates to your thesis/argument
What is Context? How Does It Affect our Knowledge? Is Context, as some have said, "Everything"? Think of five specific examples of how context affects our understanding and the knowledge we have.
How does Guernica the painting relate to this quote?
Why did Germany lose World War I?
Why are performance enhancing drugs unethical?
How does language in the media shape what we know?
Read the examples of Knowledge Questions in the Document "knowledge questions.pdf" on my Weebly. Choose three or four that you find the most interesting. From those, choose one that you can respond to in your Evernote for next class. Try to use real life examples to explore the knowledge question and justify your point of view.
Reflect on two pieces of art you have seen/read that also relate to this quote? How are they lies? What "truth" do they show?
Does art always show us the truth? Can you think of an example?
