As the average age of persons in the United States continues to rise, there is a growing need to educate people about various aspects of gerontology. At Ithaca College, the staff members at the Gerontology Institute have worked to create a range of lesson plans that deal explicitly with aging issues. All of these plans have been field tested in the classroom and they were designed to meet rigorous New York state standards. After reading the "About The Project" section, visitors should head for the "Lesson Plans" area. Here teachers and other parties can download lesson materials such as "The Baby Boomers and Social Security" and "Myths and Facts About Aging". The site also includes a list of suggested readings and related weblinks.
