#099: Why Shouting is a Sign of Deeper Classroom Management Problems

classroom management Jun 09, 2022

News Flash! I have shouted at my class. Ok, who hasn’t, really?! In fact, I've had my share of classroom management problems too.

So I know from experience when it comes to behavior management in your class, yelling [more than on rare occasions] is a sign of a deeper classroom management problem. I don’t do a lot of classroom management episodes, but truly behavior management is something that pervades all areas of teaching and needs to be discussed in the context of various teaching times and situations so you can simply teach.

 In case you haven’t guessed….Today, we’re talking about classroom management strategies in the literacy classroom.


If you find yelling is not a rare occurrence for you, to have to shout to gain back control of your class, or you find yourself lecturing about behavior more than you’d like…then you already know [deep down] that you’re struggling to maintain control of your classroom. You KNOW that your students don’t know how [or refuse] to take responsibility for their actions.

And that means...you're dealing with the same issues over and over again and doing the same things over and over again and wondering why the result is the same. Been there. Done that.

Let's dig in and figure out what the deeper classroom management problems are so you can quit shouting and teach joyfully once again.

Listen in to the full episode to find out:
  • Why you are yelling and what to do about it.
  • Why all is not lost. You really can successfully restart your behavior management.
  • How to diagnose the deeper classroom management problem
  • A plan to get your students’ behavior back on track
  • Where to begin.
