 5/17/11 Attention is Developed How we feel as adults is different than what children  feel, because we’ve learned and practiced attention  control, experienced overload, etc., and know what  to do. Children have not developed these same abilities. Later we will do an activity to see what it might feel  like for children to experience attention overload.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
