How do you handle noisy class?

Answer:

If students are noisy in the classroom they cannot learn effectively and they will get tired very soon. It is the teacher’s duty to control noise level in the classroom.

As a teacher, I never try to talk over noise or yell at my students. On the contrary, in such cases I low down my voice - this enables me to focus my students’ attention and they start listening. I know that if I speak quietly, my students will follow my lead. If I shout, they will considerably increase the noise level in the classroom because they will see this as my permission for them to yell as well.

As a matter of fact, I never permit noise to get out of control in my classroom. In some rare cases, if students are very loud, I have to take excessive measures to make them quiet. My experience showed that it is easier if I start to control noise level as soon as begin my class.

I believe that it is important to be consistent in enforcing the noise levels in the classroom: students should always know what they can expect from their teacher. Every teacher should set his or her rational restrictions and abide by them if they want their students to deliberately learn how to manage their own noise effectively and to avoid conflicts.
