To few teachers surprise, a new study has found that shouting at children is counter-productive. You can read all about it at Shouting at children ‘increases their behaviour problems’ in the British newspaper, The Telegraph.
There have been plenty of studies (and years of countless teachers experience) that have found the same thing (you can find out more at The Best Posts On Classroom Management).
Do I sometimes raise my voice at my class? Of course, we’re all human. But, fortunately, I seldom do so.
I just don’t understand why some continue to use shouting as a part of their classroom management strategy.
