Part A

Part A of the assessment will include a table of the findings of the articles to be included in the research paper. There should be 5-10 scholarly articles that are from recognized, refereed journals appropriate to the topic. This table should include details about the aims, methods, results and discussion for each article.

Part B

Part b of the assessment will include the review which should synthesize what is known about the topic by identifying the relationships that exist in the literature. It is also important to define, evaluate and clarify what is inconsistent or contradictory in the literature.  How do these approaches compare to a Catholic Christian understanding of the human person?
