Evolution Assessment
Directions: This should be regarded as a take-home assessment.  It should be typed.  It is open source (notes, texts, etc.).  As a result, your answers should be complete, well thought out, and not leave anyone guessing at your meaning.  I will not specify a length, but you must answer all parts of each question.

1. Give an example of an organism in the present natural world and describe how it developed a given trait through the process of natural selection.

2. Why canít organisms learn how to evolve?

3. Has the evolution of the human race stopped?  Why or why not?  Support your argument with what you know about the requirements for evolution to occur.
