Family and Community Services. Module XII: The Family: Functions and Structure.
This twelfth of 14 curriculum modules in the Family and Community Services Occupational Education Modules series deals with functions and structure of the family. Definitions of the family are compared, and students are helped to understand various forms, functions, and structures of families. The developmental stages of the family life cycle and life styles are explored. Awareness of the aspects of family conflict and the paraprofessional's role in conflict situations are stressed. The relationship of families to other social institutions is also discussed. Each of the six competencies covered in this module encompasses a number of objectives, suggested strategies for student experiences, and references and resources. Supplemental material for strategies, such as handouts, self-evaluation devices, and case studies, are found in the appendix. Other materials include an achievement test with answer key and matrix indicating competencies tested with Bloom's taxonomy level for items. (YLB)
