Analyzing an Ethical Choice
Thus far in TOK, we have analyzed the following Ways of Knowing:
Your task, is to identify an Ethical Choice...this could be something real from your life like “not cheating on a test” or it could be something that is real in the world however something that you do not have immediate experience with such as voting against a war if you were a senator…and then analyze how you came to that choice. You must integrate the 4 ways of knowing into a CONCEPT MAP illustrating your analytical process.
You can create this map digitally or visually.
- Integrate at least the 4 Ways of Knowing we’ve discussed thus far
- Concept map form
- Map needs to sufficiently indicate to the reader how you came to your conclusion (I cheated or I didn’t cheat)
The whole point of this exercise is to answer the Driving Question:
To what extent does one utilize the ways of knowing when coming to an ethical decision?
The answer to this question leads to other great follow ups like:
- Should we be more present in our decision making?
- How to become more present?
- Do some ways of knowing influence us more than others when coming to an ethical conclusion?
