Teaching and temperature

One thing that I have l gained from being a educator is that the temperature of a classroom is something that has a sizable impact on the way students learn and behave throughout the day.

When students are too chilly while we were in the day, they tend to become more whiney and complain about everything.

When the classroom is too warm, they can become too comfortable and begin to get lazy and periodically, students will even fall asleep while we were in lessons. I have found a temperature that keeps the students alert yet comfortable, and all it took was a survey of the un-even temperatures that parents use in their own homes. I asked the students to take home a small survey for their parent to complete and 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 home around 74 degrees. I started using our smart control unit to keep the classroom at a comfortable 74 degrees throughout the week and our students had a great reaction to this, then most of them were glad with the temperature, and only a few felt love they needed to bring an extra layer to class. The sleepy youngsters were alert and 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.
