Family Studies 10 - Housing & Living Environments, 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.

The aim of Housing and Living Environments is to provide an overview of housing and society. Students will learn how housing is influenced by culture and society, and how it has evolved over time. They will also consider the role of government in housing, and how environmental considerations influence housing. This course will also provide students with an opportunity to explore their future housing choices and factors that influence those choices, including costs and maintenance. Students will examine some of the elements and principles that are used by designers, including fashion, art, landscape design, and interior design and decorating and how these principles can be applied to improving their own home environments. Students will conclude this course by researching careers associated with housing.

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