Better late than never, or so they say.  A few weeks ago, I asked for IB schools to 
send me the titles they use in their English and Theory of Knowledge IB courses.    
Several of you asked for the results of my query: the following is a compilation of 
what I received.   If given, I’ve listed the grade level where each title is used.  
Some titles appeared on more than one list.
