    I have a TOK essay due on Jan 6 (irrelevant)
    Essay topic: When should we trust our senses to give us truth?

    Here is the problem, I am having trouble starting it. Do we start with a KI like "To what extent do we......." or a normal intro with a hook or what?
    It would be great if you give any advices or ideas or tips or good sample of TOK essay because I'm sure it will be beneficial to many new IB-ers including myself!!

    Thank YOU!!!!!

    I've always had a hard time starting my TOK essays as well.
    I think it's pretty much just like a normal intro though. You need to start the intro off with something that captures the reader, something interesting. Then go on to write about your understanding of the question/issue and what points you will discuss in the essay. End with your thesis.
