2 What is the Reflective Project and why is it important?
The Reflective Project is an opportunity to demonstrate how you apply IB Learner Profile skills to a project of your own design. You will: Produce an extended piece of work requiring a minimum of 40 hours of work Engage in personal inquiry, action and reflection on a specific ethical issue Develop critical thinking skills The Reflective Project combines your career-related studies and elements of IBCC core

Fully investigate an ethical dilemma in your chosen career path and give supporting evidence for both sides of the issue before asserting your own voice making a clear choice for which solution is best. Highlight the cultural relevance of your topic on an individual, community, country and global level. Reflect on insights gained while researching the issue Streamline your communication to make it clear and concise and consistent.

4 What is an Ethical Dilemma?
What is Ethics? Ethics is based on a set of moral principles of a society or culture that helps to guide behaviors, actions and choices. The ethical dimension refers to the range of ethical aspects related to an identified topic. What is an Ethical Dilemma? An ethical dilemma is a choice between two or more conflicting moral perspectives where none of the choices provides a perfect solution.

5 How to select an issue 1. Find a real-life situation in the context of your IBCC career path 2. Formulate a non-ethical question that simply describes the issue. 3. Redraft your question so it asks for one solution to the problem or issue. 4. Add an ethical dilemma associated with the issue and open up questions so it leads to multiple answers. 5. Focus on the ethical dilemma and enlarge it so the questions goes beyond the original observation. Your question should have more than one right answer and require the use of an argument.

6 Research Read articles from newspapers, magazines, books and websites to determine significance of issue to formulate a question. Plan investigative production / writing. Identify sources and references. Set deadlines Plan research that logically supports question.
