"Misbehavior hampers the effectiveness of learning and teaching. Everything depends on the management that the teacher employs and how students react. For instance, if the class is bored, students misbehave, start cheating or fighting, and talk without permission (Burden, 1995). The objectives of this quantitative study were to determine the effect of common behaviors on student performance in the classroom and to analyze the strategies teachers use to get the students' attention and better comprehension. The participants were 18 students aged 14 to 16 years old. The results show that the most common way students behave in an English class is opposite to what teachers indicated; they do other activities instead of paying attention. For further research, misbehavior may be explored with other variables such as anxiety, feelings, types of personalities, learning style, friendships, relationships, and confidence. To keep more on student misbehavior and its specific cause that make students misbehave".
