Narratives on Positive Aging
Each chapter includes an original introduction to the chapter's theme, which places the stories in context. A series of essays and brief memoirs on multiple themes, and reflections for educators, written by educators, enable instructors to use the book most effectively in their courses. Each chapter ends with concluding thoughts and discussion questions for use in class or as writing prompts. The organization and subject matter of the book are appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate students in gerontology.
Narratives on Positive Aging is designed to serve equally well as a supplemental reader to primary texts on issues in gerontology, or as a unique stand-alone textbook. The story-telling narrative also makes the book of interest to lay readers in community groups or retreat settings.
