Theory and methods are not the same. The theory is there, but if you are unable to perform them, then you will not be able to show results. I believe that both the theory and the method are important. If you are unable to think about ways to make life better, then you are going to have a difficult time. I just want people to learn more about what is life, and to do stuff that is fun, my man.
This page contains examples of student writing associated with the Theory and Methods requirement.
