  1. This was a very interesting and informative episode! I know I am probably not alone in my erroneous belief that students are less engaged simply because they lack interest in the topic. There are a host of reasons, and the only way to get at them is to ask.
    One thing that still bugs me is the presence of cell phones in the classroom. On the one hand I can take the position that if they miss important information because they’re texting instead of listening, that’s on them. But on the other hand I find it distracting and personally disrespectful. I feel like a lot of energy is wasted on trying to navigate what to do on a case by case basis.
