Combination of "focus" and "faux," describing the act of pretending to pay attention in class while you're doing something else. Well-timed nods at important assertions and brows furrowed in intellectual curiosity go a long way toward indicating that you are actively engaged in the class conversation. In truth, however, you may be texting, emailing, or shopping for shoes.
