Abstract:
The aging population is gradually increasing because people are living longer. Older people are often portrayed as insignificant, unhealthy, sad, and dependent in contemporary cultures and values. Therefore, it is pertinent to improve the knowledge, attitudes, and behavioral intentions toward aging and older people held by elementary and secondary teachers. The researcher designed an 18-hour Aging Education Training (AET) program to test whether it influenced the knowledge, attitudes, and behavioral intentions of the participants. Overall, 33 teachers were in an experimental group and 51 teachers were in a control group. The results revealed that the teachers who joined the AET program had improved knowledge, attitudes, and behavioral intentions toward aging people after the training program. Conversely, there was no significant difference in the knowledge, attitudes, and teaching behavior toward aging people in the teachers who did not join the AET program. Overall, the teachers who joined the AET program had significantly greater knowledge, attitudes, and teaching behavior toward aging people compared with the teachers who did not join the AET program.

Keywords:ageism, aging education, attitudes toward aging, knowledge of aging, teaching behavior intention toward aging
