Are you wondering how to get students to stop talking in class? A noisy classroom, or even just one talkative child in class, can have a negative impact on learning for all students. This blog post will share strategies to get students to stop talking and explain how to turn chattiness into a positive tool for learning.

Now, there is a difference between a class that is chatty and a class that has academic conversations going. Both may sound similar to an outsider, but the effects it has inside the classroom can be very different. If you have a class of chatty kids who want to talk non-stop, or just that one child who loves to shout out over everyone during your lessons, it can be very stressful (for both you as the teacher and your students). This creates an atmosphere that no one wants to be a part of. 

A classroom where students are free to talk whenever they want about whatever they want can have many repercussions including a decrease in learning. This is not something any of us want, but unfortunately is happening all across the country. As a teacher, you want to show that you have control over your students in your classroom, that they can be respectful individuals, and that learning is happening inside. Here are some ways to make sure your class has positive academic conversations going on and not just uncontrollable non-stop chit chat.
