Trends In Care Costs Essay
click on the link above to visit the Genworth trends in care costs (Links to an external site.) webpage (Links to an external site.) and explore statistics on topics of your choice. Compare or explore at least 3-4 topics.
- In ten-to-twelve meaningful, thoughtful, and grammatically correct sentences, briefly summarize the data you found interesting and then focus mainly on what you learned. Remember we are all reading the same web pages, so focus your paragraph more on sharing with the class what you learned or discovered. For example, what did you find interesting and why does it interest you? What surprised you and why, or did the information confirm what you already knew and how did you learn this information that you already knew?
Watch the above Instruction Video regarding how to access the data and tips for completing this assignment.
PART 2 Read 4 data collection (this is the Part One posts of this assignment).
- do not combine this post with your data collection post.
Start the paragraph by sharing with the class in a couple of sentences what one sociological topic related to age and care the posts had in common. Writing that the topic was about the costs of caring for aging people is too general, please think deeper and let me know if you need help. I am looking to see that the topic you identified makes sense with the overall message of what your colleagues wrote about in their posts.
Next, choose two key terms or theories from the glossary section of Chapters 10 and/or 11 (at the end of the chapter in our textbook), read about the two key terms or theories within the chapter, and if you need more information, consult the lecture handouts and/or the sociological tutor (you can also contact me for help). In a few sentences per key term or theory, explain each of them in your own words. It’s ok that your work is not perfect, you are learning. I am looking to see that you have a basic understanding of the concepts.
Finally, explain to the class in another few sentences, per key term or theory, and in your own words, how each one relates or applies to the one sociological topic you identified at the beginning of the paragraph. I am looking to see that you are able to apply key terms or theories that make sense with the topic you identified as the main theme.
