The Number 1 Habit of Highly Effective Learning

Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. 
Heating water takes a long time.
Which of these statements are always true? It may be obvious to you, but imagine that thermometers weren't invented yet. Which statement would you choose now? Unlike concepts (something conceived) and procedures (to do lists/recipe), principles are discovered and not invented nor are they details that can be true or false. 
Principles are only truth. They are the most important kind of content for us to include in our homeschooling. 
We believe that when students learn to recognize and apply principles they will increase their appreciation, understanding, and retention of the subject. 
As homeschoolers, we are seekers of truth. Let's learn how to use powerful principles in whatever we are learning.

Thom & Tresta Neil

Thom and Tresta Neil are happy parents of eight wonderful children. We met while working at a nursing home in Provo, Utah. Thom is from New Hampshire and served a mission for his church in Italy. Tresta is from New Mexico and served her mission in the Netherlands. Thom waited for Tresta as she served and were married shortly after her return. After they had their first four children, in 4 1/2 years, Thom brought up his desire to homeschool. Tresta thought he was mad! After much persuading she decided to try it and has never looked back! Together they are the owners of Keystone Education and the directors of a popular Homeschool Conference in Utah. They are sought after presenters. They both have a unique resumes: Thom delivered half a dozen sets of twins as a teenager and Tresta sat on a cactus and was involved in grand theft auto
