Do you share an experience with writer Autumn Jones? You’ll recognize it pretty quickly if you do! I urge you to take a minute (you’ll be glad you did) to scroll through “An International School Kid (‘Your accent is so strange, you must be Canadian?’)” In TOK, we talk about scientists sharing knowledge, and artists sharing knowledge, and indigenous people sharing knowledge. Some of it is shared through a conscious methodology, and some of it is shared culturally. Where would you place the shared knowledge raised in this article? (And why did you laugh?) This article, unsurprisingly, was forwarded to me by a friend who was once an international student in my international class. Guess where her kids go to school!
