How Flexible Should I Be With Non-Traditional Students?

If you have had non-traditional students in your classes, you have probably faced a number of challenging situations. Non-traditional students are definitely different. We teach you how to strike the right balance between inflexible and being a pushover.

Dealing with Non-traditional Student Challenges

You will learn:

  • “I want to be in class for the next test, but I need to be at my child’s parent-teacher conference. Can I take the test on Tuesday instead?”
  • “I thought I emailed the paper to you! I must have done it wrong…Can I just send it through the regular mail instead?”
  • “My mother is in the hospital, and I wasn’t able to finish my paper.”

If you have had non-traditional students, you have probably faced these types of situations and more. Non-traditional students are different.

In this Magna 20-Minute Mentor, Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D., teaches you how to strike the right balance between inflexible and being a pushover when it comes to these specific student populations.

  • How to distinguish between helping non-traditional students and enabling them.
  • How to set standards with non-traditional students that require hard work but that are also flexible.
