Meeting your goals and your students' goals.

Students walking into the Marriages and Families classroom want to learn more about themselves, their lives, and how forces -such as government policies - will affect their lives. They are striving to learn how to make better decisions.

Instructors goals are to teach a strong theoretical foundation and critical thinking while keeping their students engaged.

Seccombe's Marriages and Families achieves both these goals.

Major themes of this text include:

1. Individual Relationships in a Social Context

2. Social Science Research

3. Application

4. Critical Thinking

Through personal videos, photos, and interviews with real families, readers learn how their choices and those of others, are influenced by social and political factors.
