we have explored the meaning of aging and changes that take place physically and cognitively.

Thus far, we have explored the meaning of aging and changes that take place physically and cognitively. I would like you to do some research and find an example of an older person who has busted the myths of old age. For example:

You may find examples profiled on Youtube, Ted Talks, or legitimate news sources.

What does your example say about his/her aging experience? Do you detect an over-riding philosophy that guides his/her life? Relate the story to one or more of the aging theories we have discussed.

Follow the writing guidelines outlined in the course syllabus. This writing should be a min of 750 words. Be sure to connect the story with topics and controversies covered in the course.

I suggest an outline that is similar to this:

1. Introduce your subject (age, career, where he/she lives, family, etc.)

2. Discuss examples given about successes and accomplishments in their older age

3. Discuss personal philosphies

4. Relate the story to concepts/controversies discussed thus far in Sasser and Moody

5. Conclusion
