Recruiting Mature Adults as Teachers.
Hollis, L. Y.; Houston, W. Robert
Teacher Education and Practice, v6 n2 p29-36 Fall-Win 1990-91
Discusses the value of recruiting mature adults into teaching. Research indicates they have different needs, motivations, values, and experiences, which teacher preparation programs must reflect. They generally cannot take traditional programs designed for younger students but require time-efficient programs that help them redevelop study habits while capitalizing on life experiences. (SM)
