Positively Aging is a program of interdisciplinary teaching materials, with examples from geriatrics and gerontology, designed to teach middle school curricular elements. The purpose of this study was to determine if use of the program materials could change students' images of elders. Results demonstrated that use of the curriculum moved students toward a more positive view of elders. (BF)
