Use short video lessons for middle school age students to keep their attention on the content because students struggle to focus on demos at the board at this age.

  • Videos keep student attention of students on the screen instead of on their classmates.
    • This discourages class clown behavior because students are paying less attention to each other and more attention to the details being presented
  • This provides a meaningful way to continue important class demos without losing the classes attention.
