This week I taught a class full of non-traditional students. I uploaded my outline presentation to Slideshare and titled it "Library Research" on the presentation, though the more accurate title may be: "TGE 0199: Library Instruction for Non-Traditional Students." These students, most of them anyway, had to earn a GED in order to make it to college. This class was helping them transition into college.
See the presentation below:
How do you teach non-traditional students? Do you ever teach classes that consist only of non-traditional students? What are their strengths?
On the whole I enjoye teaching the non-traditional students, because they seem more attentive, ask more questions, and are glad to learn in most cases.
