Educators have been using different reward and punishment systems to educate learners since the history of early pedagogy. This research aimed to explore the effectiveness of different techniques of reward and punishment to facilitate teaching and learning in the classroom environment in Dhaka. The research also sought to implement Prophetic teaching methodology in today’s classrooms in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to demonstrate its effectiveness in teaching. A survey was conducted in the form of a questionnaire using 28 educators and 29 students of Dhaka city assessing the effectiveness of different reward and punishment systems in the classrooms. Analysis of the responses demonstrated that half the students participating in the study believe that both reward and punishment are required for managing behavior and improving class performance, and less than half the educators reflect the same view. The study also concluded that the use of corporal punishment is a highly ineffective method of classroom management. The study also employed educators acting as volunteers to implement Prophetic teaching techniques in Dhaka’s classroom and found out that the techniques are well received by students. On this basis, it was recommended that Prophetic teaching methodologies are used in everyday classroom settings to ensure proper management of classes and effective learning.
