Family Studies 11 - Adulthood, Version 01 (Print)

PLEASE NOTE: The current structure of the Family Studies 10-12 IRP allows teachers to combine any two of six modular courses into a four-credit course. Open School BC currently has four modular courses available: Families in Society, Interpersonal and Family Relationships, Housing and Living Environments, and Adulthood.

Family Studies: Adulthood introduces students to many issues around adulthood and aging. Topics such as what it means to be an adult, definitions of adulthood and rites of passage into adulthood are discussed. Students also explore the roles and responsibilities of adulthood, and how changing demographics and societal factors have influenced our views and definitions of adulthood. How people age physically, emotionally and cognitively is also included in this course, as well as end of life issues. Healthy eating, physical activity, and mental and emotional wellbeing are examined in light of how these elements affect individuals throughout the aging process. Finally, students will explore the societal determinants of health such as: transportation, housing, and social interaction; and also what constitutes active aging and age-friendly communities. Students will conclude the course by researching careers associated with adulthood.

Please note that student term tests and instructional guide (answer keys for section assignments and term tests) are available for this course.
