Promising Practice: Orientation

The NCTN Promising Practice Series presents detailed descriptions of strategies from the field that are designed to promote the successful transition of students from ABE to postsecondary education.

Many GED students have anxiety and a low sense of self-efficacy when it comes to academic work. Some don't feel that they are smart, and they think that college is going to make them smart. We need to help students change those perceptions, to recognize that they already have the intelligence to pursue college. It’s true that college will give them more information and a broader perspective, but we want them to see that they have already demonstrated that they have the ability to succeed in college. 2006.
