Concern with noise level
If this looks too familiar, I apologize. I should've posted this in the correct category and I posted this same problem under a "general" forum:
Hello! This is my 1st time posting. Does anyone know an effective way to keep noise level to a minimum when students are engaged in teams? I've always had this problem and I had to keep using my signals to let them know that the noise is becoming unacceptable. This is one of the problems I'm facing when students are engaging in accountable talk. Sometimes I feel that they become so passionate that the noise starts to escalate. I keep reminding them to use indoor voices but I keep having to do it every 5 to ten minutes. Does anyone have any suggestion in order to sustain an acceptable noise level when students are engaged in teams? Thank you for any suggestion. Happy Teaching!
