kids shouting out

Taking this at face value, it means they don't get it. I would be glad in getting this feedback because your students are being honest. Or are you annoyed that they are shouting because that's being disruptive? Or are you feeling frustrated because of their audacity? And you don't have other means to explain something in a way that they get it.
Your students may be trying desperately to communicate with you (good) or they may have established a method for upsetting you (bad).
For the good:
1. Give them a protocol for sharing. A "parking lot" would support their questions, and diminish shouting.
Parking lots are written and later posted. Read about them here: http://www.competencyworks.org/how-to/creating-a-classroom-parking-lot/
2. Give them the opportunity to turn and talk -making comprehension the focus. This will keep them engaged and other students might have answers.

3. If you're using a whiteboard, type one question -really big, for all to see. Allow this question to guide ideas and clarification. Write notes together.
Students love it!
For the bad:
Address your classroom culture by using the good stuff. Don't expect students to know anything -including good manners and study habits.
