HCS 433 Complete Class Week 1 – 5 All Assignments and Discussion Questions – A+ Graded Course Material

Week 1 Individual Perspective of Aging Paper

There are many stereotypes about the elderly, and we see older adults portrayed on television, in movies, and in advertisements. We read about older adults in books, hear about them in jokes, and see how they are depicted in birthday cards. Much of what we know, or think we may know, comes from these sources, and they may not be entirely accurate.

Research three different types of media, either electronic or print, that depict an older adult. You may look at television, movies, greeting cards, or newspapers, as a few examples.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word APA-formatted paper on your findings. Look for stereotypes in the media and how the older adult is being portrayed. Be prepared to discuss this in class. If possible, bring the media to class with you.

Refer to Perspective of Aging on the student website for more information.
