Stereotypes about the elderly and older adults persist on television, in movies, and in advertisements. We read about older adults in books and in print media, hear about them in jokes, and see how they are depicted in greeting cards.
Research three mediums that depict older adults. You may consider television, movies, the greeting card industry, or newspapers as a few examples. Look for stereotypes, including examples of ageism.
Write a 700- to 1,400-word analysis of your findings.
Include an explanation of ageism and how misconceptions and misinformation play a role in it.
Format your assignment according to APA guidelines.
