GERN 400 ASSIGNMENT 1Welcome to GERN 400We will be exploring a wide variety of AGING topics this semester. All of these issues will most likely touch our lives in one way or another (family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, YOU, me, etc). NOTE: For ALL assignments in this class you are to write in FIRST PERSON… I think, I feel, I like, I don’t like, I was shocked, etc.. This is going to be new for some of you, but you will soon get the hang of it…. The Assignment: (Due: Wednesday, Dec. 23th @ 10:00 pm) After you read & watch everything posted, I want you to tell me: 1. What are your thoughts (fear, anticipation, haven’t thought about it yet) about growing older (be honest… your thoughts are safe in this class!). 2. What experiences have you had (or are having) with older people (65 years old and older will be the measure for this class) 3. What do you already know about aging (have taken another class, it’s part of your major, you ARE older…. tell me!)4. Why you are taking this class (I know, it fit into your schedule… or you heard it was amazing…. or you think (orheard) it will be an easy A… or you’re interested in the topic…)… all of these are acceptable answers, I want to know WHY? and what do you expect to get out of this course… (Be HONEST!! I don’t grade on whether or not I like or agree with your answer..they are YOUR thoughts! I really want to know!!)5. And finally, what did you think about the videos? THE CONTENT (not the music, not the moderator, nor theartistic viewpoint… CONCENTRATE on the material that was presented) … Pick out some interesting facts that caught your attention…. Tell me WHAT the fact (or issue) was and WHY you found it interesting for AT MINIMUM3 of the videos (yes, you can mention all of them too!) Writing FORMAT: (if you don’t follow this, you WILL lose points!). Number the questions for your answers (just like the question format above!!)… you should have 5 paragraphs: #1: blah, blah; #2: blah, blah, and so on#5: For this question, you will have 3+ bulletsVideo #1: blah, blahVideo #2: etcBe specific… for full points: complete sentences, thorough, (short ‘vague’ answers are going to reduce your grade), I want you to provide some substance to your answer, however, I don’t want you to rewrite ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ either! This is a writing intensive course and if you don’t write something substantial (meaning one sentence answers are not enough), you will lose points!!NO APA!! Just your thoughts!!Criteria for Grading (no official Rubric this week): • READ everything required above (did you know BeachBoard tracks you?? If you don’t check out the Syllabus and Course Schedule, you will lose points… basically,you will not earn an A for the assignment)• Include answers to ALL the 5 components asked in the assignment. • Make sure 1st person…. I think, I feel, I like, I worry, I, I, I…. I think you get it!! • Points will be lost for not including information and being vague (meaning one word answers or those that leave me confused) • BE SPECIFIC… And…. read what your classmates are saying! If you want to jump in and make a remark on someone’s comment, yes, go for it (not required for full points). But be mindful. It is easy to write things being anonymous… However, you might think of it as sitting in class and listening to everyone else’s opinions, thoughts, comments, etc., and before you say anything, think to yourself first, “would I say this out loud in class?”VIDEOS:1. https://youtu.be/jbkSRLYSojo2. https://youtu.be/QwfH1gYkXTw. https://youtu.be/0ukNFMeZvcc4. https://youtu.be/q_N6LHUuUmo5. https://youtu.be/sWTYZGM8e0g6. https://youtu.be/X9HlHmY-PsA
