WRITING AND BEING A NON-TRADITIONAL STUDENT
think it helps a lot to already love to write when you become
a non-traditional student. Extra assignments, papers, and essay
tests all come easier when you love to write. It isn't such
a chore then.
thing I did remember from being in school before was to start
early on writing assignments. When I was in college the first
time, I used to put assignments off and wait until the very
last minute. As a non-traditional student (and much older...)
I just didn't have the stamina to stay up all night and complete
projects. It made me much too tired.
needed to write a lot while I was in college as a nontraditional
student, because I was taking education and English courses.
My favorite class that I wrote a lot for helped me learn how
to critique other people's writing.
professor had us all do a high school portfolio, complete with
many different kinds of writing. It was fun!
