How to manage class noise levels

Behaviour guru Sue Cowley coaches a teacher how to manage class noise levels by using clear instructions, time targets, and varying the teacher's voice level.

Sue Cowley observes a 3D shapes lesson via hidden cameras taught by E'Van Tsang at Greenholm Primary in Birmingham. She is able to coach her about keeping noise levels down throughout the Year 4 lesson via a concealed earpiece. It is when E'Van is unclear or hesitant about what she asks them to do that the children become noisy.
