Summarize and/or discuss the two readings. While you all have heard of animal rights to some extent, very few people have ever heard of (or taken seriously) the idea of plant rights and respect. How do Indigenous people see plants and animals and how does their worldview differ from ours? What are some of the results of recent scientific studies that show how plant species are a lot more complex than we typically think? Were you surprised by any of the information?
You might have had friendships with animals that were important to you–what about relationships with plants? Did you grow up with, say, a tree you particularly liked? What about non-living entities such as rivers, rocks, mountains, etc.? How did the physical place you grew up affect you?
Your writing should reflect that you actually read the articles.
