The following is an assignment in Sociology when students are examining the Social Institution of Family.
Students are assigned the task of comparing and contrasting the way media portrays families from older television shows to modern television shows.
Students are given a list of suggested shows (which can be edited) and are instructed to observe one (minimum) of each (old and new) and complete the accompanying chart.
This is another great application of material and knowledge learned during their study of Family. Plus, the students LOVE being assigned homework to Watch T.V.!
