Speaking in the Classroom
McBain, Robert
Online Submission
Too much speaking and indiscipline in class is an on-going problem for any teacher, it is at its least disruptive and at most it destroys a good positive classroom atmosphere. This article recognizes this and continues this debate and suggests key clues to support teachers in their efforts to maintain a positive classroom atmosphere and discipline so that those students who do want to speak and give answers can do so without being drowned out by other more confident students and any other distractions. At the same time it also suggests activities and practices that teachers could use to teach students to become more independent and responsible in class and enhances the idea of self regulation in student's attitudes towards their own learning so that they learn to concentrate on what's important which aims to give other students a chance to speak up and be heard.
