modern homosapein characteristics
Assignment ID Number AFFGEHU83939HD Type of Document Essay Writing Format APA/MLA/Harvard Academic Level Masters/University References/Sources 4 References
Compare modern humans (Homo sapiens) to one other species of recent hominin and identify the features that make both of us “humans”. You get to emphasize the traits
you think matter most in defining us a human, and you get to pick which species you think is the first to qualify as being enough like us that you would call them humans,
too. There isn’t a right or wrong answer to this question. I just want to know what you think and to see you use evidence from the class to support your argument.
What are the key traits of Homo sapiens that you think makes us human? Which hominin species from the genus Homo do you think first qualifies as human? The
hominin species you select as the first human must be a member of the genus Homo (1.5 mya or more recent), and you must focus on a single species to compare to
Homo sapiens. (If you think only Homo sapiens can be called human, then compare them to Homo neanderthalensis, arguing why their traits differ enough that you don’t
consider Neanderthals human yet.) You will need to include anatomical, behavioral, and cultural traits in your argument.
Use the tables, readings, and diagrams in the module and Explorations chapter to fill out the What makes us Human? chart. Pick one species to compare to Homo sapiens
and for each, describe the form and function, and the evidence for each of the traits as laid out in the chart. You may pick Homo erectus, Homo heidelbergensis, or Homo
neanderthalensis to compare to Homo sapiens. IF you think ONLY Homo sapiens qualify as humans, then compare us to Homo neanderthalensis and be clear where you
think the differences matter and make us human and them not quite human.
Be sure to explain the comparison – are the traits identical? how do they differ? does this difference matter in showing the species as “human” or not? Are they enough like
us that you consider them “human” or “people”?
Three options for completing the table:
Fill it out on the computer: On the computer, you can type phrases and sentences to explain, and use symbols or line drawings to create a diagram if you want. Please DO
NOT use clip art or copied diagrams/images from online sources. These may show the right information but don’t help your ability to explain it. The actual drawing and
explaining will help you understand it better. Resubmit the finished document.
Print it out and draw and write by hand. Take a photo to submit.
Use your own paper (or whiteboard etc) to recreate the table or a panel for each of the 4 sources. Take a photo (or 4) to submit.
Upload the finished document or a photo of your hand-written version back into the assignment.
2.Despite a long history of racism in America, racial categories do not distinguish people based on clear biological differences. Explain one of the 3 common assumptions that Americans have about race and then explain why it is wrong using an example or data you learned about in the modules or Explorations textbook.
3.Explain one of the morphological or physiological traits we see in modern humans that varies due to natural selection. How does this trait vary across human geography and populations? What selective pressures led to the selection for this trait and how it varies across populations. Talk about the related genetics, if that is part of what you learned in the modules or Explorations.
