CELT Reading Circle – “Distracted: Why Students Can’t Focus & What You Can Do About It”

This event meets Wednesdays, starting October 4th through November 1st.  (5 weeks)

Read the thought-provoking book “Distracted: Why Students Can’t Focus and What You Can Do About It” by acclaimed educator James M. Lang who challenges the conventional belief that technology is responsible for students’ lack of attention in the classroom. Instead, he uncovers a deeper issue: the mismatch between how we teach and how students learn.

Join us for an enriching experience as we navigate the pages of “Distracted” and reimagine the practice of teaching and learning.

Facilitated by Lesya Hassall (CELT Senior Manager, Instructional Design) and Misty Zimmerman (CELT Instructional Designer)

The book is available online from Parks Library
