From the Publisher
"I've read over a few of the activities and they seemed interesting and engaging. I like the introduction tips at the beginning of the book as well... explaining how the ideas in the book are used to start inquiry and begin discussions. I look forward to reading Skills and Practice!" - Jamie Lynn, Head of TOK, King High School, Florida
