Using theories and concepts covered in this course, students will prepare a eight- to ten-page, double- spaced paper that reflects on the family that they are familiar with. This paper needs to include the following:
⦁ Presentation of the family;
⦁ History of the family;
⦁ Various aspects of diversity within this family;
⦁ Roles and responsibilities of family members;
⦁ Professional careers, work, and division of labor within this family;
⦁ Parenthood and taking care of family members;
⦁ Future of this family – challenges, hopes and fears.
In their papers, students should combine their own thoughtful analysis with ideas and information found in a minimum of six sources. Therefore, as in any scholarly writing, students should not merely copy information from another author, but use evidence to support the contentions they have drawn from their findings and critically analyze related literature – this paper has to be an analytical paper, not a summary of readings. This paper must meet APA requirements of format and style.
Students must cite the sources of all ideas, facts, and information used that are not their own, even if they have put the information into their own words. Failure to do so is plagiarism, even if the oversight is unintentional.
