Your assignment requires you to pick two case studies about family relationships.  You can select the case studies from your own experience or from articles.  At least one of the case studies needs to focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural considerations.  If you are going to use your personal experiences, you want to write out the case study to make it easier for you to reference.

Once you have selected the families you want to highlight in your case studies, you need to write the case studies.  Even if you are selecting a case study that you find online, you want to use the information contained in that case study to create your own study of the family.  Make sure to include socio-cultural factors and your own personal experience and biases when relevant.
