Classroom Management Funny Series #2 – Quiet Your Faces

Classroom Management Funny Series #2

  • This strategy is intended to be fun
  • It is not designed to transform classroom culture but helps gain attention from students
  • Use it a few times throughout the semester (But don’t overdo it!)

Quiet Your Faces

  • Use “Quiet Your Faces” when attempting to get attention from a noisy class
  • It allows you to get their attention in a fun way because “Quiet your faces” sounds funny
  • It sounds like it could be inappropriate (similar to Shut Your Mouths!) but the beauty is that it isn’t inappropriate, which makes students laugh
  • It kind of stuns students when they first hear it (What did he/she just say?) so you can gain their attention, to give them instructions or to start a discussion
