Outcomes of a Comentoring Project: Inspiration and Admiration
Zucchero, Renee' A.
Educational Gerontology, v35 n1 p63-76 Jan 2009
A comentoring project paired students in a lifespan developmental psychology course with older adults to conduct a life review. The intergenerational paring was designed to increase students' knowledge of older adults, the aging process, and development across the lifespan. Students developed a paper that included their partner's life history, a developmental analysis, and a personal reflection. The results of an exploratory qualitative analysis of students' personal reflections revealed salient themes, such as introspection, and themes not previously reported in the literature including inspiration, admiration, and role modeling by the older adults.
