Very confusing to navigate at first, so I will leave a tip for future users: Open the notes .pdf provided in the slide, and click on each LINK within the .pdf to get the information to fill out the notes. Great course otherwise!

I would like to...

Course Availability

This course is only available to trainees days after purchase. It would need to be repurchased by the trainee if not completed in the allotted time period. This course is no longer available. You will need to repurchase if you wish to take the course again.

Description

If students are asked: "What does it mean when someone asks you to pay attention?" they might say, "It means to concentrate," or "It means to look at the teacher." When asked how they might concentrate harder on the teacher, a typical response might be: "Just pay attention more." But attention is much more than just "paying attention."
Attention is a system of controls that can help students with such things as working consistently each day, focusing on the right details when reading, and thinking ahead about what to say. Every day, students are expected to use their attention skills to succeed with school work, control behavior, and relate well to others. Different students will show different strengths and weaknesses in this area. For example, some students might find it easy to concentrate on information that isn't very exciting, but have a hard time staying awake while sitting still.
Helping students understand the different controls of attention and ways to strengthen all aspects of attention can increase their success throughout life.

Ms Angela Luke (8 Mar 2018)
Interesting and helpful information
STACY GRIGG (7 Jun 2018)
Great information! Enjoyed this class.
Ms Staci Fowler (7 Feb 2017)
I am currently working with preschool age children in a Montessori setting. Anything relevant to age range of 2-5 would be greatly appreciated.
Corina Laraway (7 Aug 2018)
The content was excellent, but poorly organized. The link in the slideshow is enough to get you to the site, but even one more sentence to alert the course student that they would need to basically conduct a scavenger hunt and search for relevant pages for the sections on the study guide would help. These pages are not linked to on the page that the course URL sends us to. This would allow US, as your students, to be able to plan effectively, to scaffold the time management, previewing, and organizing skills that the course touts. This course has fantastic information, but I would not be surprised if many teachers decline to finish this course based upon this poor presentation.
Ms Catherine Gabler (7 Apr 2017)
It was very informative!
Mrs rebecca harris (6 May 2017)
it took me a minute to figure out how to properly navigate through the course.
Kimberly Northup (6 Mar 2018)
This course provided some very useful information that can used in the classroom to get results right away. I would have preferred a pdf that I could print rather than having to toggle back and forth between screens.
Mrs Bethany Gamez (6 Jan 2017)
Valuable information.

The specificity of the questions on the test were a bit much.

The questions are taken from very small sentences that are very difficult to find even after reading.
Mrs Karen French (4 Feb 2017)
important suggestions to keep students engaged

repetattive information, caused me to be confused
Mrs Christy Greer (31 Dec 2016)
Great workshop -- valuable and useful information!
Mr Dale Shaulis (30 Oct 2016)
The information was very pertinent to what I was seeking to find, and will be implemented on Monday morning, Keeping my students' attention has been an ongoing goal, and it was refreshing to see that many of the things that I do with my students is right on track, but now I have the research and knowledge to understand how and why it works. i would recommend this module to any of my colleagues.
Sarah Jennings (30 May 2018)
User-friendly and easy to complete exam.
Linda Paschal (30 May 2018)
LOVED this course. I am NOT an auditory learner, so the video classes are less interesting to me. I loved the way this course was designed and a learned a great deal!
Bethany Hayes (30 Mar 2017)
Good information - but the initial set up of the course was confusing and I found it tricky to initially find the actual course information.
alexander linares (30 Apr 2018)
I cant believe we haven't learned of this research sooner. Great and useful research.
Mr Aaron Couch (3 Oct 2018)
The notes were organized, thorough, and directly related to the assessment.

Good
Nancy Smith (28 Jul 2018)
This course was helpful, activating lots of ideas and processes to implement in the classroom.
Mrs Sonya Butler (28 Feb 2017)
I found the wording on quiz to be confusing. I read over all the information and watched all the videos, while the information I learned was fabulous, I felt the questions on the quiz were tricky.
Mrs Julie Ibarra (27 Oct 2016)
Interesting information about keeping students' attention.
Mrs Christa Hilliard (27 Nov 2016)

Awesome refresher!!!
Mrs Heather Loop (26 Jan 2018)
Extremely well-written, self-paced course. I've bookmarked the site to reference in the future as it has a wealth of ideas to help our students in all aspects of learning.
Mrs Jill McKee (26 Apr 2017)
It is so important for students to be able to self-monitor their learning. When we say, "Pay attention," students need to know exactly what that means. This course provides comprehensive strategies to keep students fully awake, fully engaged, and fully in charge of their progress. Great information!
Sylvia Jones (25 May 2018)
Good and useful information
Christopher Bowman (25 May 2018)
I’m not really sure this course taught me anything I didn’t already know, but it’s not bad for beginners or teachers that could use a mental refresher if they’ve gone stale in the classroom.
Mrs CATHERINE FIELDS (23 Sep 2018)
The notes were helpful, however understanding the material needs to be found on the website is tricky.
Mrs Kimberly Nowell (23 Jan 2017)
This was a wealth of information on how to help students engage and participate in their learning. Great ideas. I'm a little overwhelmed, but encouraged to try some of these ideas.
Francisco N Morin (22 Jun 2018)
Yes I though the session was great, The part that I liked was mixing lectures with reading and hands-on activities.
Guadalupe Novak (22 Apr 2018)
I liked the helpful tips portion of the course! Really provided great ideas on how to help students focus and succeed.
Braden Hunt (21 Sep 2018)

Delbert Harmon (21 May 2018)
Very detailed and comprehensive.
Mrs Rosa Iannuzzi (21 Jun 2018)
Very informative course.
Krista Morrow (21 Feb 2018)
User friendly
Mrs Courtney Davis (21 Dec 2016)
I like the outline and how it laid out how to make our students make more of their time. I know in Kinder we have to do brain breaks often to keep them attentive to the lessons. We also have to model and lay our specific outlines for them since everything is new to them.
Michelle Shepherd (21 Apr 2018)
The All Kinds of Minds article on Developing Control Over Attention is a fantastic resource for teachers looking for easy, free, and effective strategies that can be incorporated immediately into any grade level classroom!

The method of learning (all reading) was not holding my interest, but overall the course is OK.

This was very helpful by giving specific strategies for how to help students engage in their learning and to maintain their attention, both by internal and external means.
Denise Littlejohn (2 Jan 2018)
Good points are made and lists of helpful suggestions are included. I did find it to be very repetitive.

Lot's of information. It was easy to read and understand.
Sherri Echols (2 Apr 2018)
Couldn't find the information on the site to use to answer questions as stated on the ATPE site. I had to use my own knowledge to take the test. I learned nothing and am disheartened as I was looking forward to this.
Tryna Smith (19 Apr 2018)
Great
Mrs Heather Lipscomb (19 Apr 2017)
Great course. I learned a LOT about maintaining attention and giving structure to my lessons.

Mrs Donna Hedges (10 Mar 2017)
Very informative! Broken down into useful & easy to understand categories!
Meryl McClure (10 Feb 2018)
Standard fill-in-the-blank style notes were easy to comprehend. Not a particularly dynamic class, which is kind of funny, considering the content is all about changing up methods to increase learning.
Mrs Angeline Brown (10 Feb 2017)
This was very helpful, as many of my students have attention issues. As a Special Education teacher, I constantly look for ways to maintain better attention from my students.
Angela Hamberlin (10 Apr 2017)
Very beneficial content.
Mrs Debra Kagle (1 Nov 2016)
