I'm the Queen of falling asleep in lectures, so I became a voracious notetaker to stay focused. I really believe that students must be engaged physically (writing, roleplaying, experimenting) and/or mentally (creating, problem solving, memorizing) in their learning. Actively involving them even if you are just asking closed questions allows the teacher to make sure they are engaged. You teach less, but they remember/understand more.
