ASSESSMENT TASK 2

ASSESSMENT TASK 2

Write a feature article as a personal reflection explaining your own experiences of the principles of Catholic Social Thought and their meaning.

First, you will need to state, define and explain your understanding of 3 or 4 of the principles of Catholic Social Thought that we cover in the unit (400-500 words).

Next, explain, with examples, how the principles you have chosen are evident in communities that you belong to and participate in: this can be a virtual community, but it must be a future professional community (that is the community to which you will belong as a professional when you graduate) (600- 700 words).
