If you remember someone having a name “like Megan,” it’s going to be hard to shake the actual name out of your head. If you think that the diabolical Count is the murderer in an Agatha Christie mystery, it’s going to be hard to think of anyone else committing the crime even if he’s shown to be innocent. If you’re pretty sure you left your keys in that one old jacket you have, you’re going to keep circling back to it because it’s hard to think of other places your keys might be.

In his classroom, Musallam follows three rules: curiosity comes first, embrace the mess, and reflect and revise.
