Language Arts Activities for Teaching About Aging.
Kavanagh, Dennis; And Others
Five teachers developed and tested creative, subtle approaches to the use of aging-related source material in language arts activities, an effort which resulted in this volume of 14 self-contained activities. These activities have been successfully field-tested in junior or senior high school classes, resulting in gains in language arts skills, increased contact with elders, reduction in stereotypes, increased knowledge concerning aging, and increased respect for classmates' opinions regardless of age. For ease of use, the materials for each activity are organized by teachers' materials (overview, objectives, materials needed, advance preparation needed, estimated teaching time, and day-by-day guidelines), and student handouts.
