Im trying to study for my Social Science course and I need some help to understand this question.
We begin our journey of studying the family with looking at the definition of family. Then we dive into the historical changes of family and examine family variations. Family has changed over the decades of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st century. We will also examine why theory should be applied to family, how it is applied and look at our first theory: structural functionalism.
After reading the articles assigned for the week in your Ferguson text, fully answer the questions asked on each article. Each unit, you are required to post to ALL discussion prompts but only one peer post per unit is required. You must post first before you will see other classmates postings.
Topic 1: The family in question: What is family? Is it universal?
The author argues that most family studies have focused on a functionalist definition of family where the unit is seen as fulfilling certain needs of society. What is the author saying about the current definition of the family? What is the issue with the current definition or is there one? Explain. What is your definition of the family and why? Is family universal? Why or why not?
Topic 2: LGBTQ Families
How are LGBTQ families constructed? Why are some forms of family so threatening to other groups? How are various forms of family beneficial to society?
Topic 3: Historical perspectives on family diversity
How did our commercial and industrial economy cause changes in the family? What affect did the Great Depression and WWII have on family? How did Native Americans, African Americans and European families differ?
