Before viewing a series of provided video clips, class members brainstorm a list of words related to senior citizens and organize these words into categories that correspond with the parts of speech. After viewing the clips, discuss stereotypes and send pupils off to write news reports with a focus on adjectives. Extension ideas are included.
