Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0205275133, Paperback)

A step-by-step guide on how to develop meaningful intergenerational programs, this user-friendly text provides pre-service and in-service teachers with an understanding of the importance of such programs. The book is an overview of elementary and middle school curricula that integrate generations for learning, for life satisfaction, and for addressing social issues. The author provides concrete lesson plans that can be used either to begin a new program or to be part of existing curricula. Lessons related to the sociological, biological, psychological, and historical aspects of aging can be incorporated into subjects as diverse as social studies, math, language arts, fine arts, and physical fitness. In addition to their academic benefits, many of the suggested lessons serve as experiential service projects that encourage student interaction and involvement with older adults in the community.
