Science is a Metaphor for Life

Advisory:

  1. Circle Time.  This is where we share openly about our families to make a family of our own at school.  Topics to discuss:
  • Justice: What is justice to you?  Identify a problem.  (These are the topics we will discuss in the coming weeks with radio).
  • Hate=action: How will you solve this problem?  What actions will you take?  Outline a plan.
  • Levels of relationships: agape, phileo, and eros.  Example: my father.  (Supplemental Q to justice: What will it take to be in the inner circle?).
