Stereotype Presentation

  1. 1. Stereotyping old people.<br />Social Groups.<br />
  2. 2. Your typical granny and Grandad.<br />
  3. 3. What do we imagine them to be like?..<br /> Slow<br />Partially deaf<br />Partially blind<br />Old fashioned, the way they think/dress?..<br />Little energy<br />Sweet<br />Traditional, Sunday roast!<br />Alot of sleeping<br />Stupidly early mornings<br />Never expose skin, cover up with cardigans<br />‘Back in my day...’ – Common quote.<br />Have a lot of life experience<br />Read endless amounts of books<br />
  4. 4. But this is reality...<br />They are:<br />Usually very clever<br />Clean and tidy<br />Have many life skills<br />Not lazy, want to get up and out<br />Enjoy socialising with friends<br />Love holidays<br />Grumpy moments<br />Stingywith money<br />Loyal to local business<br />
  5. 5. 60+<br />The older generation, 60+ have obviously been alive for 60 years. <br />Back in 1940’s our grannies and grandad’swere born, so, by the time they reached their teens in the 1960’s, it was a radical era, where sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll was the key of life. Everything was a lot more free, people were much more laid back and life was essentially great fun. <br />Although they worked very hard, social times countered out the hard work. They used to drink every night in a traditional pub, and on weekends sometimes party all night long! Smoking was the fashion and having a good, enjoyable time was there most popular past time. <br />You may think that you might be the first to try things but.. The reality is that you granny who now sits in little cosy armchair used to be out and about living the Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll lifestyle.<br />
  6. 6. BINGO!<br />A GOOD OLD GRANNY, SAVES HER PENNIES FOR A GREAT NIGHT OUT AT THE LOCAL BINGO ON THE WEEKENDS.<br />
  7. 7. Typical granny?<br />Last year, a granny was arrested for selling cannabis to her friends. This goes completely against the stereotypical old lady.<br />She was arrested, charged for possession but freed in court.<br />
  8. 8. By <br />Steff Humes<br />&<br />Emily Smiles<br />
