Any ideas on how to work with a student who speaks extremely loudly? I have two boys, in two separate classes, that I consistently find myself reminding, "I am right here, you can speak quietly." They do not scream, they just speak so loud that it will literally make my ears ring. It is not simply when they are excited, it is constant. I have had their hearing tested, and it is fine. I can only think that they need to be loud at home to be heard for some reason, but I do not know! The parents are not excessively loud people. It is making me CRAZY and it is really hurting my ears at various points throughout the day, but I just have no idea what to do about it! Thoughts? Maybe I am overlooking something.
