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, magazines and see how they are depicted in greeting cards. Much of what we know, or think we may know, comes from these sources and they may not be entirely true. Research 3 different types of media, electronic or print, that depict an older adult. Then write a 700-1,050 word APA formatted paper with References on your findings. Offer examples of stereotypes from the specific types of media you select and examine and how the older adult is being portrayed positively or negatively. See “Perspective of Aging” on the rEsource page for more information.
