Suggested Responses: Students should describe becoming human as the process of inheriting species-specific, genetically-derived traits from one's ancestors. Acquiring a language or general emotionality might be given as examples. Becoming Martin Luther King should be described as the process of becoming an individual within the species and is the result of individual variations in genetic inheritance and unique personal experiences. Scarr's concept of a "range of opportunities" should be mentioned. Becoming African American should be described as the process of becoming an individual within one's cultural group. Cultural differences related to history and experience, as well as genetically-derived variations, should be mentioned. Students should make the point that all of these processes interact with one another to determine human characteristics.
