Resumen This study was undertaken in response to numerous complaints by teachers concerning school noise. It was carried out in two German elementary schools. Based on noise measurements taken in classrooms during 175 lessons, it was analysed how the different modes of teaching (frontal lessons as and differentiated lessons) have an effect on noise levels (expressed as LA95 et LAeq). Next, it was investigated how changes in classroom acoustics affected the sound levels in context with each kind of work. It was found that with acoustic improvements, sound levels decrease, students' social behaviour becomes calmer, and teachers experience less stress and a lower sensitivity with regard to the sound level. Implications of these findings are discussed.
