For our Discussion Forum, we covered areas related to non-traditional family structures, educational settings, and citizenship engagement. This Reading Reflection #6 asks us to analyze family challenges, theoretical perspectives on education, and governmental power.
***CONTENT ADVISORY***: Chapter 14.3 reviews information related to hardships for families, including intimate partner violence (IPV). For this reason, you may select either option A or option B for your reading reflection readings and prompts.

Then, please read your option’s assigned readings from the Introduction to Sociology textbook in order to complete your answers in your reflection (each chapter and section in the table is hyperlinked, simply click on the title and it will immediately take you to that chapter section):
