How to Listen up in the Lecture Hall

So you’re sitting in your astronomy lecture trying to learn about the intricacies of outer space, but instead…you are spacing out.

How can you center your attention on Saturn when all you can think about is your supper? Fortunately, you can remain engaged and learn as much information as possible.

Before coming to class, look at your notes from the previous lecture and read the material that pertains to the current lecture. This way, you can anticipate what will be covered and be prepared to ask questions. Another helpful strategy is to sit in front of the room so you can fully attend to the instructor and take notes without being distracted. To create self-motivated internal interest, demonstrate outward interest in the material by assuming attentive posture— this will help you focus like a laser beam!
