Option 2: Field Observation



1. Find a place to observe old people and their interactions with others. Definition of old people depends on you. People who are 70 or over? Or people who are physically frail? Or people who look "old" like grey hair, wrinkles, or gait? Observation site could be, but not limited to, a grocery store, shopping mall, hospital wait room, restaurant, metro station, train station, or your work place. Public places with people of all kinds of age groups would be better. You can observe interactions, or a lack thereof, between younger people and older people at those places. If you cannot find any, try more age-segregated places such as senior center or retirement community.

I need help in starting a thesis for this paper because it will be my first observation paper. .
