Reducing Student Bias against Older Adults through the Use of Literature
Tice, Carolyn J.; Harnek Hall, Diane M.; Miller, Shari E.
Educational Gerontology, v36 n8 p718-730 2010
Human services educators must address the issue of students' bias toward older adults to encourage interest and meet the growing need for professionals in the field. The use of literature can challenge students' preconceptions of older adults while innovative teaching methods can guide their development of more tolerant views and introduce them to a field that they may have previously given little consideration. Based on a model of cultural competence development, teaching strategies, learning objectives, literature, and an evaluation are suggested. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
