It is interesting to me that most You Tube videos are between 2 and 9 minutes and I even get bored watching those sometimes. Yet when I am required to attend meetings at school I am almost always bored or disengaged within the first 5 minutes. How much more so do my students disengage when my presentation to them is more than 10 minutes long? Why do we assume that the presenter's information is so much more authoritative than the presentees? I think it is vital that we consider our audience always when presenting information, whether in the classroom or professionally.

I think and 80/20 focus could more helpfully be applied to focusing our instruction on the 20 percent of the curriculum and skills that will most successfully benefit our students. I definitely do not think that only focusing on 20% of our students is a good idea :)
