Front Cover
National Council on the Aging, 1986 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 39 pages
Fifteen lessons contain low-vocabulary, high interest reading materials on health issues to enhance the learning of the new older reader. Each lesson is preceded by tutor guidelines with specific goals and objectives and review exercises. The materials are useful in either one-to-one or small-group tutoring. Reading selections in the lessons, which are written at a first- through third-grade level, deal with some of the older adults' most common health concerns. Each lesson defines the health concern, signs and symptoms of the problem, frequency of its occurrence, and ways in which older adults can avoid problems and concludes with a positive message. Topics include time well spent, a good health consumer, good food, foods bad for one's health, high blood pressure, strokes, heart disease, the flu, a winter danger, falls, constipation, skin, mouth, Medicare, and crime.
