How Our Society Looks at Aging.
This program, developed for the secondary level, focuses on how our society looks at aging. Three lessons are included which deal with misconceptions about aging in America, the normal dependencies of aging, and economics and the older person. The lesson on misconceptions is intended to help break down stereotypes young people have about older people and to help students understand the process of aging in general. The lesson on normal dependencies of aging is intended to show that dependencies are a normal process of aging, and to help students understand the four basic categories of dependencies for the aged. The lesson on economics will enable the student to determine what the major sources of income for the aged person are, explain why income maintenance is a major concern for the elderly, and list the possible expenses incurred by the aged. Content and/or procedures, instructional materials, and evaluation techniques are included for all lessons. (Author/KA)
