2. Paragraph two (Influence of Context and Assumptions – Criteria B): What do folks around you assume about death and dying? What did/do you assume? Did any of these shift as you wrote your directive? What social-cultural factors influence you the most when you consider your death and dying?

If so, can you identify what this theory lacks?
