Today we took a fake test. We put 16 societies in order from "most civilized" to "least civilized". In order to do this, we had to think about the parameters that we use to define civilization. We decided that every person has a different perspective, and that perspective is what really dictates our definition of civilized.
Your homework tonight is to come up with a list of characteristics that civilizations needs to have in order to be considered civilized. Try to come up with at least 10 traits.
