James M. Lang : Distracted : why students can't focus and what you can do about it
(New York : Basic Books, 2020. - 284 p.) 

It was so refreshing to read James Lang’s new book, Distracted: Why Students Can’t Focus and What You Can Do About It. Lang is clear that distraction is a natural state of the human brain, but is not simply defeatist. It’s right there in the title: what you can do about it. So what is the answer? Lang writes:

    (We) need to turn our heads away from distraction and toward attention. Our challenge is not to wall off distractions; our challenge is to cultivate attention, and help students use it in the service of meaningful learning.
