Re: [teacherartexchange] what do you do about too loud voice level??

One of the grading categories I have for every project assignment is WORK
HABITS. This includes maintaining focus/concentration on the work, care of
materials, and, of course, working so as not to disturb others in the class.
A low Work Habits grade and kill a potentially good grade on a project.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] what do you do about too loud voice level??


I teaching high school ceramics and have been having problems with too loud
voice levels during studio time. I've been giving the whole class a warning
and then if the voice level doesn't change, I make it silent time the
remainder of the period and give detentions to those that are talking.
However, this isn't working. I still have to do this very frequently. Do
you have any ideas for how to maintain a quiet, workable environment during
studio time?
