1. Maslow's hierarchy of needs: in the context of Maslow's hierarchies, why do people go to college? What needs are met by this behavior? Do you agree or disagree with Maslow in your own case?
2. Taste preferences - Learned and genetic: Based on Harris' reasoning about India's creation of the sacred cow, why do you think that Jews and Moslems decided to reject the pig as a food source? If we consider supertasting and nontasting from an evolutionary perspective, what kinds of environments would have led to supertasting, and what kinds would have led to nontasting?
3. Control in the Classroom: What is the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation? What kind of structures in the classroom would help students to develop intrinsic motivation?
This solution addresses the three question related to Maslow's hierarchy of needs (e.g. why do people go to college, etc), taste preferences (learned and genetic), and control in the classroom (e.g. intrinsic or extrinsic motivation, what kind of structures in the classroom would help students to develop intrinsic motivation, etc.).
