Your task is to describe and state the implications of what
makes two cohorts different, unique, and distinct. To do this, choose two different cohorts
(generations). Below are generations from which to choose, with a ?rough? summary of time
spans:
The Greatest Generation: Born between 1910 and 1923
The Silent Generation: Born between 1924 and 1944
Baby Boomers I: Born between 1945 and 1955
Baby Boomers II: Born between 1956 and 1964
Generation X: Born between 1965 and 1984
Generation Y: AKA ?the Millennials;? Born between 1985 and 1999
Generation Z: Born between 2000 and ????
Generation Alpha: children of Generation Z, the oldest of which is age 10 (Pinsker, 2020).

common. The Atlantic. Retrieved 09/05/2021 https://www.theatlantic.com/

Required Process: Interview individuals from two different cohorts (e.g. your parents and
grandparents) asking them about what it was like for them to be teenagers (e.g. what music
they listened to, what they cared about, what were gender roles like, what political/cultural
events influenced their thinking and values, etc).
Analyze your discoveries about the differing cohorts by answering the following questions:
—What cohort is represented?
—When did that generation ?come of age? (e.g. when were they teenagers)?
—What historical event(s) took place during that period?
—What values are expressed by this cohort?
—How do these generations differ (especially with regard to history, culture, and values)???
—How can this information be useful when talking or working with patients from this cohort?
Use APA or other scholarly writing format (e.g. MLA). Integrate citations within your text and
include a reference page at the end of your paper. Turnitin is NOT required but may be used
by the professor as necessary.
