This resource was developed prior to the curriculum redesign in 2015. While it does not align with current learning standards, it may have value as a content source. Teachers may need to make adjustments to ensure accurate alignment with current curriculum:

Family Studies 12 - Families in Society, Version 01 (Online)

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.

The aim of Families in Society is to provide a broad overview of Families in a Changing World; Living in a Family; Facing Family Challenges; and Career Opportunities. Students examine how changes in society impact the definition of family and the functions of the family, as well as explore family trends in Canada and family customs and traditions in different cultures. Students will examine the roles and responsibilities of family members, family values, and the influence of family dynamics. Students will also understand the economic, social, and emotional issues facing families today and practical strategies for coping with those challenges. Students will conclude this course by researching careers associated with the family in society.

Please note: OSBC is in the process of revising this course due to having to delete the copyrighted media of the DVD. Until the updated material is available, a chart has been prepared outlining where the videos are found in the course and if the videos are attached to activities or assignments.

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