Looks like everyone is enjoying his or her placements! I’ve been enjoying mine, though I had a minor setback. I got sick again ☹.

My concern was missing placement and getting my LSS sick, I using her computer and we work in a very small space. My dilemma was taking the day off completely or working offsite.

If we learn the distinction between each method, we can appropriate them accordingly. The topic for the activity was people’s attitudes toward aging (Candall and Busselle, 2009). Students categorized adverts according to the product advertisement in Elle (young adults), People (neutral), and Good Housekeeping (older adults).
