preparing a debate

In addition to p. 31 / ex 4, I want you to take a look at p. 274 ff.
You will find some guidelines and good tips on how to prepare for a debate. You will need this in the final exam!
Please read these three pages (THIS IS HOMEWORK!)

– p. 32 / Changing Families

traditional families:
nuclear families, natural, adopted, break up, separate, divorce, support, breadwinner, homemaker, look after sb., double income, childcare, family unit, extended family, bring sb. up, family values.

new kinds of families:
natural, adopted, one-parent families, break up, separate, divorce, support, breadwinner, stay single, look after sb., double income, childcare, family unit, extended family, bring sb. up, family values, gay couple, surrogate mother, test-tube baby, clone.

– differences between so-called “traditional families” and “new kinds of families” are relatively superficial, concern the structure rather than the substance of family life.
