Day 2 class
Readings for Day 2
Pass-fail writing assignment (Don't stress. You need NOT write anything
this first assignment;
handwritten notes will be fine. My aim is just to gather responses for
- Ask at least three people the following
question. "What do you think makes us human?"
- You may rephrase it
if you find that useful.
- If they give a really short or cryptic
answer, you might ask them to elaborate.
- Please turn in a short
written account of the answers you get. Also any interesting observations,
whether they found it easy or hard to answer, etc. If you changed the
question, which is fine, please note what it was.
