One thing about classroom “chattering” during other students’ work… I make a point to step to the corner of the room farthest from the student/students speaking. Why? Because so many Koreans speak very loud in Korean and very soft in English, I make “voice quality” a part of my grading criteria… and I tell the rest of the class that if they’re talking during the presentations, I won’t be able to hear the students’ voices, and they’ll have to give their presentation again. Yeah, I know it sounds like punishing the victims, but, it has worked, so far.
