From Back of Book:
"Familiar... from the Latin word familia, or family.
And what better way to hold students' interests than by having them read and write about what they are most familiar with? Their families. Family Papers is the writer's sourcebook, containing a variety of carefully selected essays, articles, images, documents, and stories, all of which pertain to the family. Creating a fund of ideas for students to draw from, this interdisciplinary and multicultural text includes anthropological, historical, sociological, and literary selections on the family. Discussions and writing topics follow each reading, while journal assignments, collaborative writing assignments, and revision activities give students plenty of opportunities to practice writing.

Family Papers encourages students to see their family experiences from different perspectives and to make the transition from personal introspection to academic exposition."
