We may not agree with each other's point of views, but in a global community it is important that we try to understand different points of view. Archeologists as late as 1997 said that the Greeks weren't smart enough to understand that fossils were from earlier periods-- no matter how many stories they wrote or pictures they drew. Our inability to take such a rich society seriously- cost us centuries of scientific strides forward. How can we look at the stories other cultures tell, our own culture tells, with a scientific mind and learn from each other. Classwork: Turn in (show) personal map/brainstorm of our own cultural influences. Watch video-discuss and work on study guide. Sign up with a partner for a culture/religion/science. Homework: research a creation story from around the world with a partner to present on Thursday/Friday. Attempt to be rational and scientific. Cite. Extra credit for correct MLA. Time to work in class on Monday/Tuesday- come prepared. Take this time to research your ancestors and the stories they told. :) We will finish the video/study guide and discussion on "which cultures gave us the first..." on Monday/Tuesday.
