Educating Adults.
Hardaway, Francine
This paper discusses adult education at community colleges. Three types of adults returning to school are delineated: the employed male who returns to school to update his occupational skills, the housewife who comes back to school after her children have left home, and the senior citizen or retired person who is not interested in a degree. It is argued that these adult students are candidates for many kinds of individualized instruction. Several types of individualized instruction for English composition are discussed including computer-assisted instruction and radio and television instruction. It is concluded that teachers should recognize the vulnerabilities of these adult students and recognize their special human needs. (TS)
