From 27 Attention-Getters For Quieting A Noisy Classroom
To read later.
My freshmen last year would get what I call “adorably loud,” in which they’d just we talked excitedly about something they’d be talking OVER each other and the noise level would be too much. So a few times I’d say, “Hey guys, you’re doing that thing when you’re trying to out yell each other. Please don’t.”
Which turned into, “Hey guys, you’re doing the thing.”
Which turned into, “Hey guys!” and someone responding, “We’re doing the thing!”
Accidental classroom management FTW!
