Retention of Nontraditional Vocational Students: Strategies for Classroom Support.
Shaffer, Kathy M.
This manual presents strategies that are intended for use by vocational instructors to retain nontraditional male and female students in secondary vocational education programs. They may also be applicable to postsecondary and adult vocational students. Strategies are divided into five major categories: policy, inservice (workshops and training activities on retention awareness), curriculum support, self-awareness, and networking (public relations ideas, activities and strategies). Each strategy is presented on a separate page. First, a statement of the strategy tells who is involved and what is expected. Then, three sections, (1) to identify different methods to implement the strategy, (2) to present concerns and offer guidelines, and (3) to provide a plan for action that may offer more guidelines, offer resources and guide the implementer to the appendixes where supplemental activities and materials are to be found. Appendixes are divided into the five major strategy divisions that contain the supplemental materials mentioned in the main section of the manual. The materials are marked as transparency, activity, or written information. (YLB)
