As I was reading Hidden Intellectualism by Gerald Graff I was cooking so the first time I read it, it was a bit unclear but the second time gave me a more clearer view of the text and I had to reread certain parts, at times. Yes, I was a little distracted because I didn't find the reading interesting but there was parts that really caught my attention.

Can You Keep My Attention?
Hidden Intellectualism by Gerald Graff basically examples his thoughts on the educational system and how unfocused he was as a student ,he felt as if instructors didn't or more like dont take time out to figure out what their students are interested in ,which makes it easy to lose their attention. Graff main focus was sports so in his days as a student and because none of his instructors know, he wasn't concern about anything they were teaching especially if it didn't involve sports. Gerald Graff also believed that knowing whats going on around you was more important that what was being taught in school, what people call being " street smart".
