Submitted my TOK essay for N18 and structured it as follows:
Introduction - Define any key terms of the question, state the AOKs and WOKs you intend to use and provide a plan/contention of what the essay will explore in order to analyse the statement/question. State a secondary knowledge question that will assist in answering the essay.
Argument 1: Divide it into a claim and counter-claim form of analysis.
- Claim 1: Using an RLS explore the WOKs etc in determining/assisting the analysis of the essay.
-Counter claim 1: Provide an RLS that argues against your claim in order to provide a coherent and balanced argument.
*REUSE THE ABOVE STRUCTURE FOR AS MANY ARGUMENTS AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE. ENSURE THAT EACH BODY PARAGRAPH/ARGUMENT ANSWERS THE SECONDARY KQ!!!*
Evaluation: This paragraph comes before the conclusion and aims to balance and weight the significance of each argument delivered in order to provide a holistic conclusion. In this paragraph you want to highlight any assumptions, boundaries or parameters for which your arguments may not work outside of.
Conclusion: Keep it short and simple by providing a summation of your essay and deliver a final response to the TOK title.
