  • In unit one, students will learn about what family is. General APA guidelines and formatting will be outlined in this unit so that students are able to properly cite and reference outside material as they complete coursework. Students will learn about the history of the family before moving into what a family looks like today. Students will be introduced to different types of families and explore their own family in detail. We will discuss world views and their effect on family life in Canada.
