“This diagram is to give information about how loud you should be in the hallway. I want the information to be noticed so the diagram is bright and colorful. I made the diagram that way because it is information explaining how loud we are when we speak to others. The diagram also connects voice to how the air quality is affected by the droplets we emit when speaking.“
The is an adaptation of a voice level chart that students use at the Boggs School to manage the loudness of their voice. The original chart has a range from 0 to 4 with description included. Students explored voice level and the connection to air quality by attempting to incorporate decibels (dB) and droplet spread, with or without masks. This exploration allowed students to share what they learned about contributing to clear air in a pandemic in a non-threatening way. I hope you find it helpful!
