The case study from Dartmouth-Princeton matchup is one of many studies over the years that has confirmed an essential truth about our human nature: we see what we want to see. More importantly, we look for evidence that supports the belief systems we already have in place. The psychological community has given this phenomenon a name: confirmation bias. Confirmation bias means that we interpret new information in a way that confirms what we already believe to be true.

This article provides some interesting ideas on how to work with a class of students who talk excessively. Click on the link below for the whole article from Cult of Pedagogy.
With the onset of collaborative learning groups and hands-on learning activities, the lines of when students can and cannot talk have become blurred. So, how do you manage the talking going on your classroom without stifling creativity and learning?

A great idea from Mrs. Laffin's Laughing Blog:
So I came up with this very simple, yet powerful, way to control all of the talking. I call it Beat the Teacher.
It basically is a game of you versus the students, and who doesn't love a little friendly competition? The way it works is that when I need the class to quiet down, I start counting backwards from five: 5-4-3-2-1. Sometimes the count is quiet, sometimes loud. Sometimes it's fast, sometimes very slow. Either way, the students have to be listening...
If I get to "1" and there is even one student talking, I get the tally point. If the entire class is quiet, they get the point. It is awesome to watch the students try to quiet each other down. Points accumulate through the day (or week) As you can see from our score above, I lost this day. :) (But did I really???) The prize is simply bragging rights....Or it could be a simple class incentive (brain break? extra 5 minutes of recess?) Either way, we are all winners!
