It is important for students with difficulty staying focused, and who have issues with inconsistent alertness, to be given opportunities to move around. Students who struggle with attention often do better if they are given opportunities for brief breaks, which help to enhance the learning process (Jensen, 2000). When students are engaged in a task that involves higher order of thinking for a long period of time, students can experience a “burnout,” which results in no new learning to occur (Jensen, 2000). Having scheduled breaks will assist students with attention disorders to better process information and learn new material in the classroom. Many students have experienced time-outs, however, it is important to decipher between time-outs and taking a break.
