Classroom monitoring : degree of implementation in schools of Bangladesh
This research attempts to find out the types of classroom monitoring techniques used in different Bangladeshi schools at secondary level, while teaching and learning English. And what type of monitoring method is preferred and used by their teachers. There are various techniques of classroom monitoring; this paper will discuss about three techniques. They are: elicitation, motivation and error correction. All of these methods are important for improving their second language learning, but the preferences vary towards a significant method among the teachers for this level of students. The hypothesis of this study is: the teachers prefer what extent of using these techniques in secondary level. To test the hypothesis, an interview session was arranged with the school teachers and a survey questionnaire was given to each of them to know their perception about different classroom monitoring methods. Also students' questionnaire scripts were collected to find out the current scenario and types of monitoring practiced in their learning. Along with that, the study will look at the reasons of challenges and difficulties of implementing classroom monitoring techniques in our context. Then the collected data were analyzed. After analyzing the responses of the teachers and the students' written copies, some recommendations were provided to make an effective use of these different classroom monitoring techniques. Also some recommendations were given how the challenges and difficulties can be handled with ease in our classroom context.
