Steitz, Jean A.; Verner, Betty S.
Educational Gerontology, v13 n4 p357-68 1987
Compared adolescents' (N=213) knowledge of aging with the amount and quality of contact they had with an older adult and compared adolescents' knowledge of aging in 1978 with adolescent's knowledge in 1985. Results indicated adolescents were very misinformed or uninformed about aging and older adults. Implications for educational efforts are discussed. (Author/ABL)
