Essay Question:

Based on the way people in your family have fun, would you say that differences or commonalities across generations are more significant? (In other words, what do leisure activities say about your family and how it has changed over time?) Be sure to locate your family in time by providing historical context (such as dates) for each generation.



To support your argument, get some family stories about leisure activities. The following questions should elicit family stories that will be useful to you. Composing your own questions might be even more successful, especially if you base those questions on your knowledge of your family chronology and history.
