history and math, no, I could always just teach myself better than I could in school, since the internet exists, and history tests were always just common sense stuff, as they were moving away from memorizing dates and focusing more on what we can learn from history. I slept though my junior year of US history and still passed with a b, the teacher did not like me when I would ace the tests after sleeping the whole class...

english and science were different, Im actually kind of interested in science and english requires you to know the material to participate in the dicussions.

You sure showed that teacher, haha

Yeah, i think it's actually unnecessary to focus to subjects that you are not interested on

i don't have online classes but when it comes to modules i give almost zero shits and rush it out

sometimes if there are activities like drawing and such, i'll do more better but yea

i would try to remain focus the whole class until it gets boring or really confusing or i got sleepy. science (physics, biology, chemistry), geography, and sociology has been really hard. meanwhile math and english is a breeze.

I usually use my phone during zoom classes but occasionally I pay attention to what the teacher's saying. I used to be able to pay a lot more attention in class pre-COVID, but online school combined with senioritus has killed my drive.

Sometimes I pay attention.
Most of the time, I'm just watching YouTube and waiting for the conversation to either call my name or the class to end.
Like ghoulybits, senioritis has killed my motivation for things that I just don't care about. Music and Japanese class actively keep me up, and I actually want to be there for those moments. Marine Science is interesting, too, but I'm mostly just doing math for "fun facts" (like how many burgers a person would have to eat to match the diet of a minke whale). But I just slack off for the rest of the classes; English, History and Gym. I don't have to try in English or Gym, and History is the class subject I hate with a passion.

TL;DR, it depends on the class.

When I'm at high school, I'm trying, but even here it's still difficult sometimes. At home, I just don't care lmao

no

I don't pay attention to certain subjects that only requires common sense/good behavior. The subjects that have formulas, branches and all that type of shit, that's when I actually pay attention because not even my common sense gets it.

I still only sometimes pay attention.
Even though it's my fourth quarter, and I have to pass this quarter or risk repeat. I'm not repeating any aspect of high school.
I should probably get serious, because my family wants me to graduate.
