DUE TONIGHT AT 8pm pacific standard time.. I enclosed the first writers material that had to be sent back due to horrible grammar that could not be rewritten and the topic is a little off.. the idea of modeling and imitation is good but it is unreadable and un-understandable. WATCH the videos below to help and watch some the TV and utilize characters that are in the shows as it states below. FOLLOW THOSE DIRECTiONS AND WATCH THE VIDEO’s
The goal of the activity is to systematically examine television images of adolescence, compare them to real teens, and draw some conclusions.
Brainstorm a list of television shows that are explicitly aimed at teens. From your brainstormed list, choose four shows that represent different content (e.g., comedy, realism, drama, etc.).
While you are watching, list the characteristics of the adolescent characters you see. Include physical characteristics, clothes, behaviors and attitudes, interactions with others, and personality traits. Be sure to include demographic information, that is, race or ethnicity, social class, and education level. Remember that you are trying to describe the character on the program, not the actor (although with reality-style shows, it may be hard to tell the difference).
Compile a list of television images of teens. How well do these images fit with what you know about real life? Are television teens smarter, prettier, richer, thinner or more physically developed, less likely to get in trouble, more or less likely to drink or use drugs, and/or more or less likely to be sexually active than real teens?
List the characteristics of TV teens. How realistic are the media images?
What purposes do the media images of teen serve? Why does television show teenagers in these particular ways? Discuss the concepts of “modeling” and “imitation.” Can you give real life descriptions of how you or others adopted dress or behaviors based on TV or media models?
This paper should have all the information above in it that is asked from the proffessor and your opinion on the topic and the concepts.. if you need a format then APA at 3 pages at least will be fine..( double spaced so thats really 1.5 at the most
