Discussion Questions

  1. What was a recent problem you faced and how did you go about solving it? What contributed to your success?

  2. Sometimes students go to great lengths to get out of work, sometimes putting in more work than they would need to actually do the assigned task. Do you think this may be because they are unable to solve the problem presented to them?

  3. Under what conditions are you most creative? Do you buy into the idea that many artists are so successful because they achieve extreme creativity under altered states?

  4. Do you believe critical thinking is something one is born with or can be taught?
