international family interview project
acquaint you with a family that is culturally different from the family that you have grown up in. ( my family is chinese) Find an individual or a family who has either immigrated to the U.S, whos parents have come from another society, has adopted internationally, or who is visiting here. Interview at least one member of this family about an aspect of their family life that interests you and that seems different from yours. for example parenting, family customs, intergenerational relationships, dating, wedding customs, etc. Make up about 8-10 questions to ask them. In addition, read 2-3 articles in the academic literature on this topic. for example childrearing in mexican families or arranged marriages in india. you are to write up your interview and observations, as well as a summary of your readings in a short paper.

2. the paper is 3-4 pages, but you also need to attach the interview to the paper. so please make up the 8 questions and and answer them on 1 page and attach it to the paper along with observations.
3. for the paper, describe the interview . how you found that particular family. what you noticed, what they said, what are the most significant issues that they are facing. something interesting you learned about them. Try to integrate your interview with the readings. this means that you should not just write up the interview and then have a separate paper about the readings. instead, combine the two : for exmple, say " i found interesting that sasha was enthusiastic about raising an adopted child from honduars. according to ( reference, 2004) most parents who adopt internationaly want ….. Also describe a bit how the interview reflects what you have read about this group or topic; are there significant similarities or differences? Make sure not to use the persons real name- you want to protect their anonymity. Include a propertly refereced bibiliography.
