Does Alcohol use/abuse lead to dementia (Alcohol use/abuse and dementia)

Historical and Contemporary Perspectives Essay (15 points) – due at the end of Week 4

You will be required to submit a well-written 4 page essay (not including title page or references) on the topic: Does Alcohol use/abuse lead to dementia (Alcohol use/abuse and dementia). The purpose of this paper is to link historical and demographic trends to contemporary issues in gerontology. Your essay should rely on assigned class readings as well as the information you gathered as part of your bibliography assignment (a minimum of 10 resources is required). Remember, you should always use in-text citations for information that you gathered from another source and include a reference list at the end of your essay.  Use APA format for this assignment.

Many students leave out the historical part of this assignment. Please make sure to include substantive information on the historical aspect of your topic! Failure to do so will result in a significant reduction to your grade. Many students also leave out demographic information (the impact that age, gender, race, education, culture, etc has on your topic). Again, failure to include this information will result in a significant reduction to your grade.

Your essay should address the following items:

· Topic: (brief description) Does Alcohol use/abuse lead to dementia (Alcohol use/abuse and dementia)

· Historical background (e.g. when did this become an issue in aging? Why?)

· Influence of demography on selected issue

· Contemporary aspects of the topic (e.g. Why is this an important issue in aging now?)

Your paper should be concise and formal (no slang, no use of “I” statements, no opinions, etc) in tone. Be sure to proofread your work prior to submission. Points will be deducted for poor writing quality or failure to use APA format.

Before submitting your work, you may wish to review the rubric provided to make sure you have addressed all of the important components of the essay.)
