Stereotypes and Aging
I’m working on a sociology writing question and need support to help me learn.
For this assignment, you should first read the article “Stereotypes on the Will to Live” This article is from research at Yale University and is relatively old (2000) but I think it is relevant and provides a good prompt for discussion. For this assignment, create a Word document to attach. Please keep your answers organized and spell-checked.
1. In your own words describe this study. What was it about? What were the main findings? What did researchers conclude about stereotypes and the “will to live” in this study?
2. In general, how do stereotypes impact the sense of self as discussed the powerpoint and book chapter for this module
3. Are there differences by culture or gender regarding the social and psychological effects of stereotypes?
