Welcome to Class
Not what you say
but how you say it
And Now for #7
teacher's voice
is the voice you use when you're standing in front of your class. It's your professional voice and often different in quality from our day-to-day ordinary speaking voice. So how is your teaching voice?
Now we have research to show the quality of a teacher's voice has a dramatic impact on how children
We also know through research done by communication consultants that the major important components of communication are a combination of what you say (the words) and how they are delivered.
"According to Albert Mehrabian, a communications specialist, there are three elements in any direct, face-to-face communication: words, tone of voice and body language.
You’ve probably heard that words account for only
percent of the message, tone of voice accounts for
percent of the message, and body language accounts for fully
percent of the message.
In a nutshell it means that what you do with your body while you explain the lesson is as influential as the words themselves.
If you want energized, focused, actively listening students then you need to mirror that in your actions. The trick is to SHOW while you are TELLING what you've got to share is exciting, relevant and important. Our body, tone of voice and words must match.

Speak Softly
and carry a BIG Stick!
You’ve heard the saying that God gave man two ears and one mouth, and in conversation, you should use them in those proportions.
Are you sure?
You know how
to speak correctly!
The ability to communicate is a skill that you can learn by becoming genuinely interested in people and by putting their needs ahead of your own when sending a message or asking them to do something for you.
Warm and expressive voices, used in an imaginative way, draw pupils in and make them want to pay attention and listen. If such a voice has quality and liveliness, they will be motivated to attend, participate and learn.

asking the right kinds of questions
asking and directing in order to make your students work on-task, constructively.
1. A piece of work assigned or done as part of one's duties.
2. A difficult or tedious undertaking.
3. A function to be performed; an objective.
Your questions, your directions -- and the
they make with children -- can be the central dynamism at work in your classroom.
