Explore the ways your understanding of Human Evolution have changed and affected your perspective throughout the course of this quarter. Which readings, discussions, or assignments have most influenced your new insights (be specific here)?
Also, please explain if or how your understanding of the role of human beings in the environment and the web of life have shifted.
If you have gained any pearls of wisdom or understanding that will affect how you conduct your life, outside of school (these can concern parenting, community involvement, how we relate to others or the environment, etc), please share these. This portion is not required, as I really don’t want you to make anything up! Where are we headed, what do we need to change, what do we need to protect, and what do we need to get rid of? Will humankind colonize space, will we unlock the secrets and defy the limits of life and death? Or will we find ourselves, like almost every other species that has ever existed, in the museum of extinction, nothing left but fossils…?
