“It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.” Vince Lombardi

  • Who never gets knocked down?
  • What does it take to get up after you’ve been knocked down?
  • What role do the people around you play in this? Can others make you more or less likely to get up or stay down?

We are done with the Lottery project.  We will now move on to our novels and our ERWC project and our new novels.

The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts – John Locke

  • How can actions really tell us what a person is thinking?
  • Why are people’s actions sometimes out of alignment with what they say they are feeling?
  • When are people most likely to act in a way that truly displays what they are thinking?
  • If someone says something unkind and then says, “I was just kidding,” why would you be more or less likely to believe him/her?
