Education for Aging: A Review of Recent Literature.
Jacobs, H. Lee; And Others
This literature review covers studies and reports on a wide range of behavior patterns relative to the aging process. While most of this work deals with education for aging in terms of adult problems and interests, attention is also given to developments in early life experience and in attitudes which tend to set the pattern for later life characteristics. Respective chapters focus on learning characteristics and abilities of older adults; existing opportunities and remaining areas of need for education on aging in the educational system; job retraining and other kinds of informal educational opportunities; and factors germane to preparing for retirement. Annotated chapter bibliographies (a total of 237 items) also appear. Instructions for ERIC document ordering are furnished. (LY)
