According to these researchers, purposeful action is one of the main classroom management methods. This technique involves monitoring and thorough follow-ups by teachers. An effective teacher will always ensure that during the learning process, students are on the right track of the subject being taught. For example, a teacher can go round the class two minutes after a lesson has begun. This is to ensure that students are on the correct page. Additionally, purposeful action may also include consistent checkups of assignments given to students. Moreover, during the learning process, clarification of statements plays a vital role in ensuring comprehension of whatever is taught as found by the researchers.
Eyster and Martin also found that students can be recognized positively, personally, or negatively. Students who score high grades can be positively recognized by giving them presents. On the other hand, negative recognition involves bad actions such as a class in attendance by students. Therefore, students should be taught the importance of class attendance in the learning process.
In conclusion, all these researchers found that classroom management techniques ensure the creation of appropriate learning climates
