CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through experience. It provides opportunities for self-determination and collaboration with others, fostering a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment from their work. CAS projects challenge students to show initiative, demonstrate perseverance, and develop skills such as collaboration, problem-solving, and decision-making.
The TOK exhibition
TOK asks students to reflect on the nature of knowledge, and on how we know what we claim to know. The theory of knowledge encourages critical thinking about knowledge itself and aims to help students make sense of their experiences. The course encourages students to share ideas with others and to listen and learn from what others think.
EE is an independent piece of research, culminating with a 4,000-word paper. EE offers an opportunity for students to investigate a topic of personal interest to them, which relates to one of the student’s six DP subjects. Through the research process for the extended essay, students develop skills in formulating an appropriate research question, engaging in a personal exploration of the topic, communicating ideas, and developing an argument.
