Adjusting the volume: Addressing emotional noise in the classroom
May 21, 2020
In classrooms, there are always more people and voices present than meet the eye. The visible 30 students, as well as the educator tasked with leading them, each bring in a host of invisible burdens: lost family members, financial poverty, incarceration, physical and emotional traumas, social and familial challenges, and cultural and personal biases. This phenomenon is known as “emotional noise,” and our approach to addressing it either increases the volume (escalating behavioral episodes) or decreases the volume (deescalating behavioral episodes). This webinar provides real-world examples and methods used to “adjust the volume” appropriately in the classroom and promote a strong classroom culture.
