College Developmental Learners' Perceptions, Knowledge, and Experiences with Aged Persons.
Valeri-Gold, Maria T.
Educational Gerontology, v22 n4 p303-16 Jun 1996
A study of 32 college developmental students found that 81% had positive views of elderly persons; some had misconceptions of the biology of aging; 78% accepted aging positively; and 44% described the impact of grandmothers on their lives. Drawings they made of aged persons indicate some stereotypes still exist. (SK)
