This technique helps Teachers to increase attention in the lessons by chunking each lesson. Research: Joan Middendorf and Alan Kalish, in 1996 published a remarkably detailed account of the ebbs and flows of college students’ focus during a typical class. Breaking the session down minute by minute, the professors determined that students needed a three- to five- minute period of settling down, which would be followed by ten to eighteen minutes of optimal focus. Then—no matter how good the teacher or how compelling the subject matter— the kids would lose it. Attention would eventually return, but in ever briefer packets, falling to three or four minutes towards the end of a standard lecture.
