How can I structure a class session for success?

Chunking is the art of breaking up lessons into short bursts of learning/teaching in order to facilitate more interesting classes. The process limits learning tasks to 15-20 minute increments, which has the benefit of promoting more attention and interest in the subject matter while helping both neurodivergent and neurotypical students who may tend to be easily distracted. With chunking, a teacher can reduce their own speaking burden and promote more social interactions with students. Likewise, students benefit from learning in different configurations (both individually and collaboratively).
