Adult Education and Decision Making for School Success
by Andrew Spowart, B.A., M.A., M.Ed.    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
During my elementary school years I experienced constant failure. As a result I usually felt as if I was one or two steps behind my classmates. I gradually lost personal confidence and motivation, eventually becoming convinced that I was indeed a failure. My solution? At the age of 14 I became an elementary school dropout. And I remained uneducated until the age of 24.
At the age of 21 I joined the Canadian Air Force. Little did I realize that the "unnatural educational detour" that I had experienced for so many years was to end.
During my three years in the Air Force I read numerous textbooks and independently completed approximately 300 written assignments which were corrected and graded by educators throughout Canada. I left the CAF having completed grade 8 through 12 by correspondence courses.
I had never attended high school, but at the age of 25 I did enrol in one for a year in order to complete grade 13. At that time I felt, that in all probability, this would complete my new educational journey. I was wrong. The years ahead would allow me to reach academic heights far beyond anything I could imagine, at that time.

Synopsis
Soft Cover
"Adult Education and Decision Making for School Success" is designed to provide adults who are planning to return to school with an understanding of themselves through insight into their personal problems and clarification of their goals. Factors involved in self-assessment and their relationship to school success are described. Needs, motives, and goals are defined and suggestions about maintaining motivation toward a school goal. The process of choosing proper goals and the differences between long and short-term goals are discussed. Also described are sources of frustration that contribute to school failure, the effects of frustration, and methods of coping with frustration. The text includes case studies and questions for group discussion after each section. The final chapter includes study suggestions and ways to prepare for examination.
A MUST READ for all educators, and adults wanting to take that step back to the classroom!
