It’s Time to Hyperfocus!

Getting started on any assignment can be a struggle. The mind wanders and you are constantly redirecting your focus back to the task at hand.

In this video, you will learn how to become more intentional, focused, and efficient in completing a task. And, when that path of concentration gets lost, how to bring that focus back.

As teachers, we can encourage autonomous learning through habits of mind. Everything from what it looks, sounds, and feels like. By guiding students to discover Habits of Mind – along with connections to ownership of their learning – increases success far beyond the classroom.

This animation is part of a YouTube Channel that high school teacher and Habits of Mind Consultant Daniel Vollrath has developed to engage students directly with Habits of Mind. Click here to view and subscribe to his channel.

Weaving strategies and activities that instill these 16 productive behaviors into his instruction has made an impact on his students’ success. You can reach Dan via email: danvollrath44@gmail.com.
