Old Enough to Care. Teacher's Guide. A Series of 6/15-Minute Programs for High School Students about Aging.
Tyminski, Lucy T.; And Others
Intended to accompany a series of six 15-minute color videocassette programs, this teacher's guide contains suggestions for teaching high school students to achieve the series goals, which are to: (1) acquire accurate information about the elderly and the aging process by debunking myths that currently surround this biological, psychological, and sociological change; (2) develop an awareness of, and sensitivity toward, the aged while stimulating students to consider their own aging process; (3) promote positive ideas and feelings about the elderly and aging, replacing stereotypes that have brought about age prejudice and discriminatory practices against the elderly; (4) encourage intergenerational communication and activities by stressing interests common to both young and old; and (5) sensitize students to the issues of aging by having them draw parallels with their own life experiences. Each lesson includes a key issue, objectives, a synopsis, preparation, follow-up, outside activities, and, for most lessons, student activity sheets. At the back of the guide is a factual summary on the topic of aging, entitled "Human Aging--An Introduction," by Dr. Darrell Slover. There is also a list of additional resources: films, filmstrips, reference books, biographies, fiction, and journals. A list of several agencies, with their addresses, is included with the Annotated Additional Resources located at the end of the guide. (LH)
