  19. Alejandro – ECTOR COUNTY ISD (verified owner)

    It is important for the development of students critical thinking (lateral thinking) which tends to always look for the right answer into placing the mind of the child in an organized and analitical form dividing their critical logic into six functions: White for Information, Yellow for brightness and positivism, Black for risks and problems, Red for feelings, Green for Creativity, and Blue for management. This allows for students to share productively with others by allowing to see the reality of others and, as well as an individual working to discover and sharing, knowing how to approach the other side when exposing his or her idea.
