    General Comments (these are my suggestions after editing class of 2011's essays)

    • No YOU!!!!!!Either sounds accusatory or assumes WAY too much…makes essays vague and nondescript
    • Use specific examples….and clarify everything so that a 3rd party audience will understand.“The movie with Lionel in it”“This is not a pipe”Need more context details.(Context is all)
    • Connect to TOK diagram – use terminology!
    • Avoid huge sweeping statements or generalizations“The whole point of photography is to….”
    • Careful with vague language “we” is just as vague as “you” sometimes.

    Ex) “When the UN said there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, we went looking for them anyway.”Consider your audience.

    • Use the language of the prompt in your essay – especially in the intro.
    • Make sure to answer the entire prompt!This may mean dissecting the prompt itself:
      • Ex) prompt #5 asks you: “To what extent and the various areas of knowledge defined by their methodologies rather than their content?”


    Seriously consider the following checklists!!!


    1) Read the Introduction.  Do the opening sentences make you engage the the prompt immediately?  

    2) Is there a counter-argument in the introduction?Are there counter-arguments throughout the essay?

    3) Are TOK concepts identified and discussed explicitly in the body?

    4) Are the examples clear and relevant to your argument?  Are the examples factually accurate?  Is any information assumed?

    5) Are there a lot of examples that relate TOK ideas and subjects on the TOK diagram to concrete, real-world issues related to the prompt?

    6) Does the conclusion give you a sense of summary?  Does it consider the most reasonable angles/perspectives from which to discuss the implications of the prompt?  


    1)  Is the prescribed title exactly stated as given, with its corresponding number?

    2)  Does it have your last name and page numbers on the header of each page except the first one?

    3)  Is the essay double-spaced?  

    3.5) 1200-1600 words

    4)  Does it have a standard font?  Is it a 12-14 point size?

    5)  Is it printed in black ink?

    6)  Is the bibliography (if you have one) organized in a standard format?

    7)  Do all less common quotes have parenthetical citation (Last name of author, page number of source)?

    8)  Are all paragraphs indented?  Also, there should be no skipped lines in between paragraphs.

    9)  Did you use spell-check?  Read over the paper again to catch the mistakes spell-check cannot.

    10)  Did you check for obvious grammar mistakes, especially those that make it difficult to make sense of what you are saying?  Beware of run-on sentences and improper capitalization/punctuation as well.
