The Effects of Curriculum on Preschool Children's Perceptions of the Elderly.
Blunk, Elizabeth M.; Williams, Sue W.
Educational Gerontology, v23 n3 p233-41 Apr-May 1997
The Social Attitude Scale of Ageist Prejudice was administered to 42 4- and 5-year-olds. Those exposed to an aging education curriculum (n=21) decreased prejudices, whereas controls' prejudices increased. Children were more negative toward older adults' abilities than their social traits. Grandparent visits did not affect prejudices. (SK)
