Classroom Management can be defined as actions taken by the teacher to establish order, engage students, or get their cooperation. Teachers who have problems with behaviour management and classroom discipline are frequently ineffective in the classroom, and they often report high level of stress and symptoms of burnout. For many educators, CM evokes several terms such as '' order'', '' discipline'', '' cooperation'', and '' misbehaviour''. Doyle (1986: 395) sheds light on these terms. According to Doyle, order prompts engagement whereas a teacher uses discipline to prevent misbehaviour. The result is cooperation. Doyle defines misbehavior as '' any action by one or more students that threatens to disrupt the activity flow or pull the class toward a program m of action that threatens the safety of the group or violates norm of appropriate classroom behaviour held by the teacher, the students, or the school's staff''.
