Discussion: Late Adulthood

DISCUSSION: In this discussion, reflect upon and discuss BOTH of the following questions:

  • Q1: What do you think helps make a successful transition into old age?
  • Q2: Write a letter to your 65-year-old self. Where do you think you will be and what do you hope to accomplish by that time?

STEP 1: First, write a response with at least EIGHT substantial sentences for each question, integrating concepts you learned from the reading and other materials (include links when necessary). Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.

STEP 2: Then return to the discussion to comment on at least TWO classmates’ posts (in at least FIVE sentences). Expand on a classmate’s comments in a value-adding, topic-related way. Promote a collaborative, supportive community, and advance the dialogue through follow-up questions. Reply posts cannot be one-liners, off-topic posts, vague statements, unsupported opinions, inadequate explanations or simply say, “I agree” or “good job.”
