HHS4M1 Final Assignment

Page history last edited by Sheridan Hay 14 years, 2 months ago

Final Assignment:  Sister Wife

 

The format of the final assignment is a report looking at the polygamist family through the theory of functionalism.  The report should consider the following questions:

  • How does the polygamist family function?
  • What are the power./social relations between husband and wives?
  • What are the potential dangers of such a familial system to Canadian society? to the Canadian family?
  • What do supporters of such a system say in its defence?  what do those who oppose it say about the practice?

 

The report should be between 5 and 6 pages and have attached to it a report on your social science research project (this report resembles a science lab report).

 

Remember to cite work and include a bibliography.
