Aging: An Album of People Growing Old.
Saul, Shura
Written for teachers and students who expect to work with people in any field of human relationships and services, the document presents an anthology of vignettes on learning and aging. In addition to the author's vignettes are those of many others, chosen by a panel of 54 reader-judges consisting of students, professionals, and elderly people. Part 1 offers a philosophical viewpoint for considering the circumstances and emotions depicted in the vignettes, with the hope that it will be useful for developing curricula and topics for class discussions, with chapters including: Viewing Aging and Learning in Our Time; Premises of the Album; The Challenge; The World of the Aging Person; Myths and Stereotypes in the World of the Aging Person; Problems and Tasks of the Individual in Senescence. Part 2 presents the vignettes, grouped under the following chapters: Life, Work and Death; Love, Loneliness and Loss; Change, Hope and Struggle; Young People Write of Aging; Old People Write of Aging. Part 3 suggests implications for service and education, and material for use in classes and educational programs, with chapters including: "Omniconvergence"; Some Implications for Service; Some Implications for Learning and Teaching; Notes on the Vignettes. A 14-page bibliography is included. (LH)
