Learning requires effortful focus, it goes without saying. But focus, attention have sadly become scarce commodities these days.
In this practical session, we will first, briefly, look at possible reasons the students don’t pay attention to us (no, it’s not necessarily because they don’t like their teacher/English!). We will then experience a variety of techniques/exercises teachers may wish to use to get the students distracted from distraction by distraction (T.S. Eliot).
