If I have a short attention span or ADHD, how can I focus for a lesson?

Many students these days face a similar problem, and from my experience, large classrooms are not conductive to these learners. Typically each subject is studied for 1 hour or more before moving on to the next. How can we adapt as educators to make sure everybody can work to their full potential? If you relate to these problems, let me know what helps you!

I agree completely! I have had a couple of students with ADHD. Before I started incorporating movement breaks, they would begin to get frustrated and super antsy. I love working with my Special Education students because it broadens our view on how people learn!
