The exhausted youngsters were alert & I even observed that they were taking more of an interest in the subject material
One thing that I have learned from being a educator is that the temperature of a classroom is something that has a large impact on the way students learn & behave throughout the day. When students are too frosty during the day, they tend to become more whiney & complain about everything. When the classroom is too warm, they can become too comfortable & begin to get lazy & sporadically, students will even fall asleep during lessons. I have found a temperature that keeps the students alert yet comfortable, & all it took was a survey of the hot & cold temperatures that parents use in their own homes. I asked the students to take condo a small survey for their parent to complete & return to me by the end of the week. The questions in the survey were in regard to the average temperature they keep their homes throughout the year. I found that most families keep their condo around 80 degrees. I started using my smart control equipment to keep the classroom at a comfortable 80 degrees throughout the week & my students had a good reaction to this, then most of them were glad with the temperature, & only a few felt like they needed to bring an extra layer to class. The exhausted youngsters were alert & I even observed that they were taking more of an interest in the subject material. Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of research to see what makes the students glad in the classroom.
