301M Spring 2010 Homework
#6 due in class on or before W 4/14
In class we have talked and will talk about some of the problems that
humans cause for non-humans
(plants and animals), as well as how groups and/or individuals might
solve these problems. For homework #6, try for a weekend, a week,
or longer to do one of the actions that individuals can do to help
non-humans. It may be one of the actions we discussed in class,
but it need not be from this list:
Some of the ideas from class are:
Reducing goods and/or packaging bought
Reusing durable replacements for disposable goods
Eating less meat, or eating a vegetarian or vegan diet
Driving less/riding the bus more/biking or walking to get around town
Using less electricity and/or water
Political activism for animal-friendly or environment-friendly causes
This homework will be graded on your report which should include the
1. What you did.
2. What problems your actions helped solve.
3. A brief account of your experience. Was it easy, or was
it hard? Did you feel like it really made a difference? Do
you think more people could do what you did; why or why not? What
could be done to make what you did easier, or more palatable, for
others to do?
Your homework should be a maximum of 3 pages and must be printed.
It is due on or before class W 4/14.
Be certain to cite any outside sources that you use. Using
outside sources is fine, but not citing those sources is
plagiarism. This homework will be graded on a scale of 0-1
points. I will subtract 0.2 points for each day late.
If you have any questions, please ask.
