Learning at the Ends of Life.
Rachel Heydon. Toronto, Ont.: University of Toronto Press, 2013.
Intergenerational learning programs bring together skipped generations (for instance, elders and young children) to promote expansive communication and identity options for participants, as well as the forging of relationships between generations. More specifically, these programs help foster multimodal literacy for both generations, encouraging new ways of seeing oneself and the world.
This book captures over 7 years of research into intergenerational learning programs, in particular arts-based, multimodal programming for young children and elders together. It looks at the unique benefits of intergenerational programs, and includes practical suggestions for pedagogies and curricula.
