Nontraditional Strategies for Nontraditional Students.
McIntyre, Janice L.
Noting that educators have progressed considerably in the development of instructional and institutional strategies for nontraditional students, this paper provides a chart summarizing possible solutions to the various problems of such students in postsecondary education. Dealing with both affective and cognitive domains, the chart lists areas of weakness common in nontraditional students, such as limited vocabulary, test anxiety, alienation, lack of direction, poor self-image, and poor study skills. For each weakness or problem area, a possible solution or suggested resource is offered. A bibliography lists resources that work well with the nontraditional student, including self-help and quick-reference materials. (RL)
