Family Questions and Writing Activity. WAIT!! CHECK OUT THIS BUNDLE FOR THE BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
Family Values Bundle - 20 Questions, Defining Roles, and Parent-Teenager Relationship Assessment
Are you looking for a way for your students to open up about life in their family and how they fit into their family structure? This activity has always been helpful for me to start the discussion with students about the institution of family in either an Writing class, a Psychology Unit, or a Sociology Unit. Geared toward middle school or high school this writing activity allows students the opportunity to focus on themselves and internalize how their family is structured, who they are closest with, who they admire, and how they fit into the mix.
Included are 20 questions that could either be printed out for students to write on or saved as a digital document that students could type into.
I've always done this activity for two days in the computer lab and it is one that you may hear students say they're not sure how to answer. That's good! It means they're thinking and sometimes it allows them an "in" to talk to their parents about life in their family.
