imageWhat do you think it means to be human?
This first lesson of the "What does it mean to be human?" sequence sets a scientific frame of mind for students as they begin to explore the question, “What do you think it means to be human?” This lesson sets an important tone by highlighting that other lines of human inquiry outside of science are important for answering this question on a personal level, but the class will focus on a scientific definition of “humanity.” Students learn to distinguish questions that could be addressed by the methods of science and those that could not, and they practice applying these criteria.
