Images of Aging
How to Begin:
For this assignment, you will analyze images of aging that surround us
in popular culture. This can include images about aging seen in ads,
programs, magazines, birthday cards, etc.
You will determine the message about aging that comes from these images.
Using your images and readings (e.g., course text, supplemental
materials provided by your instructor, additional scholarly articles),
you will create a PowerPoint presentation that is 12 slides long
(including one title slide and one references slide in APA style). Each
of the 10 content slides must contain one photo with a succinct
explanation of what that picture signifies. Use the “Notes” section
under each slide to explain your ideas about each photo and how the
photo relates to the topics below.
The following topics should be addressed in at least one slide:
- Family relations, living environments, work, or retirement.
- Perspectives of elder care or coping with death and bereavement.
- Economics, discrimination, or political influence.
The PowerPoint presentation must be 12 slides in length (including one
title slide and one references slide), and formatted according to APA
style. Incorporation of a minimum of four scholarly sources is required
for this assignment. On the final slide (slide 12), you must document
all sources in APA style. For information regarding APA, including
samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within
the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
