Gauging the intensity of our emotions and energy levels is an important component in the development of self-regulation. When students’ acquire an ability to recognize when their emotions and energy levels are not conducive to learning, they are in a better position to modulate this towards better focus and availability for learning. Gauging class-level emotions can help an educator to take the emotional temperature in the room and introduce ways to shift the tone to help all students to re-focus.
