  • Do you have an age-focused class activity you designed?
  • Do your students participate in an intergenerational project?
  • Do you use a favorite film or book on aging in your class?
  • Do you want to share your teaching ideas with others and learn about what they are doing?

"Talk of Ages" will provide a "one-stop" resource for instructor-friendly teaching tools. You are invited to submit a description of an aging or intergenerational activity or resource you use in your class. Your piece will be featured in a search-able collection of innovative teaching materials.

Format for your submissions:

  • Your name, affiliation, contact information.
  • Activity or resource title.
  • Brief description of the activity (with directions) or resource (250-500 words).
  • Supporting materials (e.g., relevant URL address, handouts, assessment tools, references, etc.).
  • "Advice" for other instructors.

Submit materials to Joann Montepare, director, Fuss Center for Research on Aging and Intergenerational Studies, Lasell College, Newton, Mass.
