Summer Faculty Book Group:

Distracted: Why Students Can't Focus and What You Can Do About It

Why is it so hard to get students to pay attention? The answer is not just to eliminate distractions, but to "rethink the practice of teaching." This book by James N Lang, reveals "how educators can structure their classrooms less as distraction-free zones and more as environments where they can actively cultivate students' attention. brimming with ideas and grounded in new research, Distracted offers an innovative plan for the most important lesson of all: how to learn."
