While watching the American family from the 50's-Present, write a blog post for each time period that we view a television show for.

While watching the show, you should take notes on the following:
1) the family dynamics
2) roles, functions and norms of the family
3) conflicts within the family or issues the family deals with
4) historical context: how does this family relate to what is happening in America within this time period
