QUESTION 1
1. Select the following statements that would be an example of ageism.

A younger person is told that they do not have the experience to hold a position of upper
management within their workplace because they are “too young,” even though they have
demonstrated the skills and abilities to do the job.

Passing laws that ensure that children are not exploited as workers or laborers by those who
would take advantage of their vulnerability.

Promoting anti-aging products and services that mask or hide the typical physical changes
that coincide with aging so that a person can be considered “beautiful.”

Members of an older generation proclaim that the common interests and activities of those in
younger generations are of inherently less quality than their own interests and activities.

A person who has all the qualifications for a job is denied a position to which they applied
because the employer says that they are “not a good culture fit.”

A person sees someone who is older using a walker to assist with their mobility and
assumes that their mobility issues are caused by their age.

An organization is developed to ensure that the rights and opportunities of those who are
older are protected because older members within a society are likely to be targets of abuse
and exploitation.

A young adult forgets the keys to their car as the leave the house and proclaims that they’ve
had “a senior moment,” asserting that forgetfulnesses is something that only old people do.

QUESTION 2
Ask at least 10 different people at what age a person is considered “old,” and have them explain what
characteristics they typically associated with being “old.” Then, calculate the mean “old age” by dividing
the sum of their responses by 10 (the total number of people who you asked) and make note of any
common characteristics cited by your respondents of what it means to be “old.” In at least one paragraph
5-6 sentences , describe the results of your survey and explain what you think that information means.

QUESTION 3
Ask at least 10 different people at what age a person is no longer considered “young,” and have them
explain what characteristics they typically associated with being “young.” Then, calculate the
mean “young age threshold” by dividing the sum of their responses by 10 (the total number of people who
you asked) and make note of any common characteristics cited by your respondents regarding what it
means to be “young.” In at least one paragraph 5-6 sentences, describe the results of your survey and
explain what you think that information means.

QUESTION 4
In at least one paragraph 5-6 sentences, identify and describe one way in which individuals can challenge
