Using books from the “Creating Positive Attitudes Toward Aging” Children's Book List, give each student a book to review. (Some are more difficult reading than others to allow for differences in reading levels and time constraints). Each student is responsible to do a review of his/her assigned book.
Students should read through the Media/Book review forms before starting the review to make them more aware of what to look for in the story. There are 3 difficulty levels to the Media/Book Review.
Stereotype, elderly, bias, ageism, literature, aging, juvenile literature, character analysis, book analysis, attitude
