Classroom monitoring techniques as; participating in activities, eliciting the information, motivating to participate in activities and giving helpful feedback are the important role of teachers while students’ are engaging in individual or pair or group works. There are two types of monitoring; active or participate and discreet or vanish monitoring. Active monitoring is to monitor the classroom activities with equal participation of a teacher by helping with language items and continuously giving correction. On the other hand, discreet monitoring is to monitor the activities without providing frequent help and participating in the groups (Scrivener, 2011, p.68). How a teacher monitors the activities in class depends up to him/her preferences. The hypothesis of this study is: the teachers’ preferences ways of monitoring at this level in Bangladesh and how much the learners’ are benefited from it. To test the hypothesis, an interview session will arrange with the school teachers and a survey questionnaire will provide to know their perception about different classroom monitoring systems. In addition, students’ questionnaire scripts will also provide to find out what types of monitoring are practiced in their class and which method they prefer most to be a successful learner. The study will also investigate the reasons of challenges and difficulties of implementing classroom monitoring techniques and possible recommendations to make an effective use of monitoring activities that promotes learners’ performance.
