    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an extraordinary class that develops the mind into becoming a learner. I had a wonderful, yet mind boggling time while in this class.

    Course highlights:

    This course provides a unique outlook on the world. It requires you to learn about the many ways that knowledge can be produced. Naturally, in this course an individual must ask questions about the world around them and how knowledge is affected and produced.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would always be prepared to consider knew perspectives, and be ready to analyze your everyday life. Also, during the first semester you should definitely have the fundamentals down in order to progress unto the second semester.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend this course for people who think in the physical, practical, and literal like I do. If you enjoy abstract thought, analyzing the hows and whys of general concepts, and applying similar principles to situations you've experienced yourself, then this is definitely the class for you. Of course, if you go to Renaissance, you have to deal with it either way, so come prepared!

    Course highlights:

    This course provided excellent practice in "faking it". By "faking it", I mean formulating something that follows a format, fulfills requirements, and requires thought that goes against my natural tendencies. Especially without any background in the IB grading systems, it's difficult to tailor traditional assignment-completing methods to this course. Fulfilling the requirements does not, unfortunately, earn you an A on the paper or presentation. There is an ever elusive "above and beyond" standard that I was never able to achieve.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Love it or hate it, my best advice would be to follow the format. If a template is given, follow it to a T. If an outline is given, expand upon it, but label everything explicitly. Use as much TOK terminology as you can, and, despite what English has taught us since elementary school, do use sentences like "My first real life situation is..." and "This relates to that because...". Follow the rule of two: at least 2 real life situations with 2 Areas of Knowledge and 2 Ways of Knowing each.
