Techniques for promoting positive classroom behaviour among secondary school students in rivers state
This study investigated techniques for promoting positive classroom behaviour among secondary school students in Rivers State. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The correlational research design was used for the study. A sample size of 630 students in public secondary schools in Rivers State was drawn from the population using simple random sampling technique. An instrument named Techniques for Promoting Positive Classroom Behaviour Questionnaire (TPPCBQ) was used for data collection. Pearson Product moment correlation statistics was used to answer the research questions and test the hypotheses at 0.05 alpha level of significance. The study found that reinforcement and punishment relate to positive classroom behaviour. Based on the findings, it was recommended that; teachers should reinforce students whenever they elicit a positive behaviour in order to strengthen such behaviour and also apply authorized punishments on defaulting students immediately and then make them understand the reason for the punishment.
