Another quick note:
We had a wonderful special topics day a while back focussed on a feature of the IB - Theory of Knowledge. In the morning we attended various workshops. I led one with the other peer counsellors about active listening. In the afternoon we had TOK talks, where you could challenge someone to talk for 5 minutes on a TOK related topic, for example: Should our ethics supercede our culture when making decisions about what we eat?
I did a short one on spirituality and the brain. It was inspired by a fascinating talk by Jill Bolte Taylor on her "Stroke of Insight." If you've never heard of TED you are missing out. It rocks.

and search Jill Bolte Taylor.
