Boredom

One of my students is having difficulty. She is a sweet girl, and she tries to stay awake, and I tease her a little during class to try to keep her awake, but to no avail.

So, we met after class today. I asked her what the problem was. She was frank: "It is so boring!" She tries to do the reading, but when you have no interest, it is difficult to get through the first paragraph of the very heavy history text.
