  • Teachers that use strict tones have been proven to be less effective at inspiring students in the classroom, study finds

    It was discovered that when faced with a strict teacher, students were more likely to rebel, their well-being was affected, and they were less likely to reveal any problems they may be facing, such as bullying. The study, conducted by researchers at The University of Essex and the University of Reading, found that students felt unable to express themselves when confronted with a harsher, more controlling tone. On the other hand, a supportive-sounding voice inspired a connection to a teacher, which in turn increased their intention to cooperate. The results of this study have the potential to greatly impact teacher training and improve overall classroom success.
