Death and Dying Education.
Ulin, Richard O.
This publication raises a number of questions that must be faced by all classroom teachers who want to know how to design effective courses on death and aging. It answers these questions by showing what can be studied in a minicourse, as well as in parts of the traditional curriculum such as language arts and social studies. The report also includes the syllabus of an 18-week course taught at Amherst (MA) High School, by a member of the faculty. A bibliography of books and audiovisual presentations that deal honestly and directly with death and related topics offers teachers a valuable resource for course planning. (Author)
