I'm posing several questions from Working with Young Adults in College Transition Programs.  Sandy

1. The first paragraph of the article mentions the positive characteristics of being more familiar with technology and higher self-efficacy with young students compared to older adults.  What is your reaction to this idea? 

2. The article mentioned couunseling needs of the younger students.  How would you address the high absenteeism and other barriers exhibited by young students? 

3. What advantages and disadvantages have you observed from working with mixed age students in your classroom?
