Portrayal of Older Characters in Children's Magazines.
Almerico, Gina M.; Fillmer, Thompson
Educational Gerontology, v14 n1 p15-31 1988
Examined portrayal of older characters in 1985 issues (N=101) of 11 children's magazines. Results indicated older characters were not victims of blatant discrimination, but subtle hints of prejudice were present in the stories. Concluded that the messages to young readers regarding the elderly were mixed and inaccurate. (Author/ABL)
