Hi I'm working with quite a chatty yr8 class and can have to tell them reasonably frequently that they need to stop chatting to themselves, especially when I need their attention. I'm working on my behaviour management strategies anyway, but have been told I could make more effective use of my voice. My only worry is that my voice doesn't seem that strong, and on my previous placement I found I got a sore throat quite easily. Can anyone advise on any ways they have effectively used their voice/ found of looking after their voice (other than drinking lots of water, which I'm already trying to increase)? I know I can go quieter so that they have to be quiet to listen, but am looking for any other strategies people have found that also work for them, so that I can at least try them. Thanks.
