Be quiet


Best piece of advice I ever recieved? Stop talking so loud. 

Those exact words. Written by an AH who happened to pop into a Y9 lesson on my PGCE. Scribbled on a post-it.

Stop talking so loud.

Best piece of advice I ever recieved.

Now I have a competition with myself to find out how quiet I can be.

So. You. Yeah, YOU. Stop talking so loud.

I love practising this with students. Such a huge sense of achievement when I get through an entire lesson with a soft voice. #smallvictories

And the more of these small victories the greater the conditions for learning become.

As you take the register, get quieter and quieter - the kids do too. It's magic!
