Do you have the same attitudes about topics, such as politics for example, as someone who is age 30, 50 or 80?
Do older people and younger people think alike? What subjects might they have different opinions about?
Is there really such a thing as a "generation gap"? Or is this a myth or assumption we make?
You are going to find out the answer to this question by researching the differences between generations the way social scientists do. Working in teams, you will first develop a hypothesis that you believe reflects the differences between generations. Next, you will design, write, and administer a questionnaire to test your hypothesis. Your survey will compare attitudes and opinions about certain issues, based on different variables, such as age, gender, or geographic region. Finally, you will chart your findings, analyze your results using Office Excel, and report the results to your classmates using Office PowerPoint.
