Cathedrals or Bricks?

In class you watched a video from HLN about Cooper that I used to talk about being excited for the "NEW."  Click on the link to watch it again.  In addition I would like each of you to read the story below:

"Once there were 3 bricklayers. Each one of them was asked what they were doing.The first man answered gruffly, 'I'm laying bricks.'The second man replied, 'I'm putting up a wall.'But the third man said enthusiastically and with pride, 'I'm building a cathedral.'" --Author Unknown
To summarize, when you face challenges, when you feel discouraged, when you feel like you will never reach success, remember the story of The Three Bricklayers and evaluate your mindset and visualize the "Big Picture!"

Attitude: "...mastering change rather than allowing it to master you." It's all in your attitude!

See the "Big Picture:" "Give yourself an even greater challenge than the one you are trying to master and you will develop the strength necessary to overcome the original difficulty." William Bennett

1. Describe what you LEARNED 1st Semester.  Put some thought into this and answer from your heart and be open to answering it how you want!   

2. What are your GOALS for 2nd semester? How can you move closer to the completion of that cathedral? What can you do differently? What can you TEACH those around you? Inspire your classmates and yourself with your response.

Spectrum of Beliefs...Where do you fall?

Using the picture, the linked video below and any other research you can gather, please answer the following questions:

Why Is It Controversial? What do you think? Where do you fall on the spectrum and why (Don't Forget The Why)?  **Please make sure to read others responses! Your comment can include a conversation with others in Biology. 

If you click on the picture it will link you to a web site describing the beliefs listed in the spectrum. If you would like to watch the 6 minute VIDEO (you are not required to watch the video) before you answer the questions, please do so. The video interviews people from all sides of the issue and can be found by clicking on the blue link above.
