Discuss how our social structures, primarily our schools, impact our intellectual development and how these structures then act as conduits or barriers to fully reaching our intellectual potential as adults and then as older adults.

Sir Ken Robinson believes schools are “killing” creativity by making children conform to an educational system that narrowly assesses academic ability while marginalizing most of what a child thinks is most important about themselves. Reflect on the main messages of the last three videos I had you watch in this module–two by Sir Robinson and the last by Adora Svitak.
Discuss how our social structures, primarily our schools, impact our intellectual development and how these structures then act as conduits or barriers to fully reaching our intellectual potential as adults and then as older adults. How are our life’s passions ignored or embellished? Lastly, what can we learn from Adora’s Svitak TED talk entitled “What adults can learn from kids” can teach us about Sir Robinson’s message and how her advice could help us regain our passions in later life?

Do you think your gender, ethnicity or economic status has shaped your aging in any way?

For this Assignment, please find an older person to interview. This person could be a parent or grandparent or a friend but must be at least 55 years old or older.
Before the interview, prepare by reviewing the class handout on Social and Psychological Theories from to familiarize yourself with the perspectives. But keep the interview simple and use the theories for your reflection AFTER the interview in your write up.
The Interview: Explain to your respondent that this is for a school assignment and you just want to do a short interview. Then ask the following questions and take a few notes.
1. First, gather a few background characteristics- age, ethnicity, gender, self identified social class or any other relevant characteristics. If you know them well you may not have to ask them for this information but be sure to include it in your write up.
Ask your elder the following questions:
2. In what ways do you feel you have remained the same and in what ways have you changed as you have aged?
Have you been affected by the physical changes of aging? How?
Writing up the report: After this short interview, analyze how their responses support or don’t support the theories from our class handout. Write a short (max 3 page) paper organized around the following.
1. Who did you interview and what is your relationship to this person? What is their age, basic background including ethnicity, gender, any other relevant characteristics that inform the interview. This can be very short (one paragraph)
2. Of the theories presented in your class handout, which theories seem most relevant to your interview? You can keep this broad but mention at least two of the theories from the handout that seem most applicable to your interview.
3. Does your interview support the idea that fundamental personality stays the same throughout life or that there are significant changes in the sense of self as they age? Explain briefly.
3. Did this person express a sense of disengagement from social life as they age? Or did they express more continuity to their sense of self? (see handout)
4. Does your respondent suggest that aging has been impacted by their gender, ethnicity or economic status?
Don’t overthink this assignment. Review the theory handout carefully. But it is not meant to be a theory discussion with your elder. Instead, just use whatever their answers are to reflect on the theories you are learning in class. Your grade will be based on organization, clarity and connection to the theories.
3. How have those physical changes affected your own sense of identity? 3. How has your outlook on life changed since youth?
4. Do you think your gender, ethnicity or economic status has shaped your aging in any way?

The general topic of the essay assignment is to analyze how living in the United States in the 21st century affects happiness/well-being. Drawing on course materials assigned to date (i.e., the ones referenced in the essay prep quiz), discuss how living in an affluent society can increase happiness/well-being and the various reasons why greater affluence in a society does not necessarily lead to greater happiness/well-being. Given what you know from the assigned course materials, think about what you could do in your own life to increase your own happiness and well-being? Also, given what you know from the assigned course materials, think about what sort of changes in society might have the effect of increasing the overall happiness/well-being of the greatest number of people in a society.
Your response should draw on your responses to all of the questions in the essay prep quiz.
Now, for grading criteria. I am going to keep this pretty simple and straightforward as well.
To get an A on the paper, here is what you need to do:
1. Write a minimum of 2000 words.
2. Reference each of the sources included in the essay prep quiz. These should be cited in the text of your paper (with author last name, year of publication, and page number in the text) and included in your reference list at the end of the paper.
3. Accurately and clearly respond to each of the essay prep quiz questions. (There are 10 of them).
4. Write well. Use proper grammar, spelling, and citations; write effective paragraphs and maintain strong organization of your ideas throughout the paper.
5. Fully address the essay prompt:
“The general topic of the essay assignment is to analyze how living in the United States in the 21st century affects happiness/well-being. Drawing on course materials assigned to date (i.e., the ones referenced in the essay prep quiz), discuss how living in an affluent society can increase happiness/well-being and the various reasons why greater affluence in a society does not necessarily lead to greater happiness/well-being. Given what you know from the assigned course materials, think about what you could do in your own life to increase your own happiness and well-being? Also, given what you know from the assigned course materials, think about what sort of changes in society might have the effect of increasing the overall happiness/well-being of the greatest number of people in a society.”
Note: If you did a thorough job on the essay prep quiz, you will have all the material you need to write an effective essay. You will, however, need to organize the material in a way that follows the essay prompt
Essay prep questions – these will help write the paper
1.What would the hedonic treadmill theory predict about how a person’s happiness would be affected by living in an affluent society? How do the revisions Diener makes to the theory help to make sense of what social scientists know about how happiness is affected by living in an affluent society?
2.Drawing on the point made by Layard regarding the importance of meaningfulness in life, explain how this finding might help to understand why there is an imperfect correlation between affluence in society and happiness of individuals within the society. Think about what might need to be changed in (U.S.) American society to make it more likely that the affluence of a society would lead to greater happiness among its people.
3.Drawing on the reading “The Paradox of Choice” by Barry Schwartz, explain how the expansion of choice in affluent societies might help to explain why affluence does not always lead to greater happiness. Based on Schwartz’s research, how much choice and what kinds of choices do you think would maximize the overall happiness in a society? Can you think of ways society might be changed in a way that allowed people the freedom to make important choices in their own lives but not so many choices that they are overwhelmed and their well-being compromised?
4.What does chapter 2 of Myers The Pursuit of Happiness tell us about the relationship between wealth and happiness within countries? In other words, are the rich the happiest?
