Aging Media Review: Description

With this assignment students are asked to critically examine an aging related issue portrayed in

the current media and incorporate in their analysis the concepts studied in class. Begin by

selecting a media piece from any of the following sources – news or journal article (print or web),

podcast, video, audio segment, or a movie. The topic addressed in the media piece must be

current and directly related to aging. Examples of age-related issues include physical or mental

health, religion and spirituality, death and dying, health care policy and programs, economy,

retirement, housing, sexuality, ethics, etc.

• Clearly articulate the main idea/issue presented in the original source. Remember that the

reader of your assignment is not familiar with the specific media piece you have selected.

Therefore, be sure to provide a context/background for your paper by including a succinct

description of the most salient points of the original piece (i.e., the nature of the issue,

prevalence, implications, solutions, etc.)

• Describe how the idea/issue relates to the theories or concepts studied in class. Be very

specific in drawing these connections and provide a rationale and examples to support your


• Describe the significance of the main idea/issue for the lives of older adults and provide a

rationale for your position. Specifically, what is the positive impact of the issue on older

adults? Equally important, what potential or actual drawbacks can you identify relative to

this idea/issue? (Remember, every position has its merits and limitations; try to identify what

these are for your selected idea). Explain in detail and with examples (Hint: since most of the

points of this assignment pertain to this section, focus on placing most of your paper’s

emphasis here)

• Identify one area related to the main issue that was not addressed by the media piece but

that you would like to explore further. What specifically would you like to learn more about

and why? Provide a strong rationale using the concepts studied in class (i.e., explain why it is

important to know more about this issue)
