Using media to enhance teaching

Immersed in a world surrounded by the media, people in our society absorb impressions, ideas, images, and sounds that reflect society’s attitudes towards aging. Also, the media reflect dominant values in a society: Whether, and how, older people are portrayed represents one measure of how ageism and sexism are embedded in the social fabric”.
