(The Game of Knowledge: Agreeable Aging,” Card Decks C & D = 18 8.5” x 11” Two-Sided Pages to Print Out & Cut Apart into 54 x 2 (108) 4.25” by 3.6” Two-Sided Cards
Who It’s For: Teachers & Learners Preferring to Work or Play with Already Created Question & Answer Cards—on Subject Matter Related to Agreeable Aging (Rather Than Input Their Own Content from Other Sources)
Why You Need It: Would you like (more) Ready-Made Materials for the Subject Matter, the Science & Art of Agreeable Aging? Here’s the second third of Card Decks A-F. Still from Syllabi for Introductory College Gerontology Courses, it consists of 54 x 2 (108) Questions, at three (3) Levels of Challenge each (True/False, Multiple-Choice, Short-Answer), for Topics that almost always come up in courses of study: C. The Mind & Senses, and D. Illness & Disability.
What You’ll / They’ll Do:
 In Download J-01.02c, (again) notice the structural design of all the Cards. Printed six (6) to a page, three (3) Cards in a row “cover” Learning Points for 3 separate Pieces of Information. For instance, for C. The Mind & Senses, the data are Answers to 1. “How might the brain age?” 2. “What are possible effects of the thinning out of brain cells?” 3. “Which techniques are most effective in retaining memory?” The same content (three “chunks of info”) appears in a different form on each Card—once as a statement to evaluate as True or False, second as a query with 3 possible responses to choose from, and third as a question to be answered with words, phrases, or sentences. An aim of this design is to make chunks of content available through both recycling and variety.
To get an overall idea of the content of 54-Card Deck C, look through its 54 x 3 (162) Items & Answers. Notice that they mention important concepts integral to the subject matter like brain shrinkage, memory aids, mental functioning, humor, stress, semantic vs. episodic memory, recall vs. recognition, motor skills, spatial abilities, hearing, vision, taste, smell, touch, etc.
To make hands-on use of the material, print out the 18 pages of J-01.02c back to back. Either apply them to Lessons & Quiz Games as is, or cut out the 54 separate Cards to use as a complete deck. Instructions for doing so are included in Downloads J-01.00, J-01.01, & J-01.Xtra—and/or you can probably invent even more effective, fun procedures of your own.
 For Download J-01.02d (Card Deck D. Illness & Disability), pick out the directives from Step 1 above that are generic enough to apply to another collection of Learning Points relevant and useful to the overall Subject Matter: Agreeable Aging. Follow them as you continue your quest to acquire & communicate knowledge through games while enjoying yourselves.
