What to do in class while bored

 

It’s inevitable. A college class will bore you from time to time. Even if your professor is interesting, sometimes the talk will get off topic or repetitive. Below are some great tips to get you through those times when class is so boring, from taking role to the last moments before you run out the door to freedom.

By assessing people's clothes you might to see small other details such as, distinct facial hair (men and women), visible tattoos, or even the number of bifocals or sunglasses. Some students will take part in a variety of other activities than the normal note taking, eating snacks, texting and day dreaming.

Please realise they have a life outside of school to and it just might be a bad day. Does your professor hold himself in a high regard? Is he someone you would like to emulate or someone you would like to forget? When this teacher becomes distracted does she transgress into other educational topics or useless information.
 
What does your professor talk about when she’s off topic? Start a list at the beginning of the term so later you can say, “Professor Boring, I know you want to tell us about your trip to Maui, but we already heard about you son’s recital and your house burglary. Can you please talk about the test next week instead?” Use this strategy wisely for when you get your grade in jeopardy.
