Resources for Aging Education.
Cavaliere, Lorraine A.
Following a short paper on the rationale for aging education at all levels, several resource lists cite curriculum materials and general references on aging. Aging education is defined to encompass educational programs at all levels aimed at helping students learn more about the nature and problems of growing old. Focus is on the elementary and secondary level including activities designed for inclusion into existing curricula and inter-generational programs which provide for interaction between young and old. Population trends of aging (U.S. and worldwide) are traced, and a rationale outlined for including aging education in elementary and secondary curriculum. Following a brief reference bibliography for the paper are several appendixes: curriculum resources for aging education (tagged for elementary, secondary, or all levels); an audio-visual materials list; a list of programs (annotated) in aging education; several newsletters from the Clearinghouse of Elementary and Secondary Aging Education at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville; and a general reference bibliography on aging classified by reference, general information, sociological emphasis, psychological emphasis, economic and financial aspects, medical and biological, retirement, education, nursing homes, and philosophical and personal.
