Questions for Critical Thinking: #3 In an art class in high school, we were divided into groups to make a sculpture. There was a very preppy, organized girl on my team along with a somewhat lazy, messy girl. The organized girl immediately created a timeline by which we all were supposed to do certain things for the project (for example, we all had to purchase materials by a certain date). The other girl was not fond of this, and didn’t have her materials when she was supposed to. This meant that we couldn’t use the time we had to do all the things that needed to be done for that day, and things went downhill from there between the two girls.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
