Learning to be Loud

Discussion in 'Professional development' started by greenskittle, Jan 20, 2011.

  1. I have always been quiet in life when meeting new people, but generally am quite a loud person once I know someone.
    I just taught my first lesson (second year undergrad QTS) and although it was good to begin with it did fall apart near the end, one thing I was told to work on was being louder,
    I knew beforehand that it was going to be something I had to focus on and so all the time during the lesson I was talking with a raised voice - however I was informed that I was still too quiet at times. Also I would like to be able to raise my voice and shout at a pupil at times Im just not sure if I have it in me. It also doesn't help that I am short, slender and female.
    I know someone else who has had this problem and went on a course to help with it... but i cannot remember the name of the course... Is there anyone else who has this problem? Could anyone give me some advice?
    Thankyou
