Hey guys. I have a slight issue for my presentation. Can someone help me with my claim and counter claim please? My knowledge question is "To what extent does religion influence the education system in a society?" and my WOKs are Reason, Faith and Intuition and my AOKs are Religious Knowledge System and Ethics.

What is your RLS? If your RLS is something based upon a story such as Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, then you could talk about setting/context of it. Though, you may have to be a bit careful about it as it could be considered a 'touchy' topic. You could state, but always give proper evidence that's been verified.

The thing about claims is that you have to give your own opinion about it. As of now, you've given a very vague information about your TOK presentation. So its either best that you 'claim' as "Yes, religion does influence the education system in a society to a certain extent" and your 'counterclaim' would be just the opposite of it.

Another thing! Your claims and counterclaims can be made on the basis of AOKs and WOKs (or should be); it should help but try and get some evidence that help base your claims and counterclaims.

My RLS: Turkish schools began their new 2017-2018 academic year with a curriculum that has ditched the theory of evolution to teach the concept of Jihad.
