Theory of Knowledge

In this course on critical thinking, students inquire into the nature of knowing and deepen their understanding of knowledge as a human construction. By examining global issues, students develop an interest in the diversity and richness of cultural perspectives. They critically reflect on their own beliefs and assumptions, leading to more thoughtful, responsible, and purposeful lives.

Learning to research and write well is an integral part of an Aspengrove education.
