Course Description
Description: 

Family Studies 11 focuses on Adulthood and Housing and Living Arrangements.  You will explore the concept of adulthood and how it has changed as society has changed.  You will also examine the evolution of housing and the role it places in meeting physical, social and emotional needs of families. You will also consider how housing needs change as we get older and the implications age can have on where and how we live.  The concept of "family" has changed over time.  How we define family today is very different than how it would have been defined 100 years ago. Think about your concept of "family" as you start to explore the concept in this course.
