“The Feeling”

  By: Megan Prats 9/27/2014 Sometimes the student selects an idea because it just feels right.  This end product is more spiritual than anything else as less thinking and more feeling really works best here. “The feeling” is something that you cannot really develop because like the heart beat, it is out of the student’s control. […]


[:en] By: Megan Prats 8/5/2014 Brainstorming is the first step of the creative process. I explained it to my student as “vomiting” ideas because brainstorming is when the student allows a free flow of ideas to be generated. How do you teach brainstorming when it is something that, like your heart beat, just comes naturally […]


[:en] By: Megan Prats 11/3/2015 The Dictionary defines creative as, “resulting from originality of thought,” and “having the quality or power of creating.” The 2learn® Method agrees. Probably the easiest way to implement critical thinking in your lessons is allow the student to create because creating beckons creativity. To develop creativity in the student, you need […]

Thinking “Outside of the Box”

By: Megan Prats Thinking “outside of the box” and Creativity have a lot in common. However, thinking “outside of the box” is an area of creativity that the student struggles to reach (creative ideas “inside the box” should be rewarded for creativity in the student’s 2learn® Bank and not thinking “outside of the box”). Thus, […]


By: Megan Prats 5/29/2015 Learning is an infinite journey because the infinite realm of knowledge always inhabits the “unknown” for the student. Thus, the student should take this “unknown” into consideration when problem-solving and make sound decisions as to how to approach it. In this article, the 2learn® Method suggests that avoidance can be a […]


By: Megan Prats 10/26/2015 Assumptions are dangerous and thus should be avoided in the problem-solving process. Assumptions inherently incorporate doubt and doubt increases the probability of error. Thus, if the student can remove the assumption that she’s applying to her problem-solving, she should. When an assumption appears, the logical step to follow is to research the […]

By: Megan Prats 3/8/2014 Congratulations! As a teacher of 2learn® you become an artist of the mind. It is unfortunate that society does not view teachers in the same way. Many believe teachers to be exam graders, glorified babysitters, and just an asset that you just want to purchase cheap. However, society’s erroneous perceptions of […]

Confirmation Bias

By: Megan Prats 5/5/2015 Critical thinking is effective in that it avoids common pitfalls, such as seeing only one side of an issue, discounting new evidence that disconfirms your ideas, reasoning from passion rather than logic, failing to support statements with evidence, and so on. –Daniel Willingham, University of Virginia The infinite realm of knowledge […]

Absorbing New Information

By: Megan Prats 11/29/2014 Critical thinking is the gateway to the infinite realm of knowledge. Thus, when critical thinking allows the student to access the infinite realm of knowledge at any point during the problem-solving process, it should become an element of critical thinking as defined by the 2learn® Method. Therefore, the 2learn® Method’s newest element […]
