The paper was designed to investigate the effects of classroom transition techniques on the student’s motivation. Students observe relevance to their learning when they have ownership of the process, and when they feel it is appropriate to meet their needs, they are more motivated. These are important factors to believe both in the planning of daily lessons and in the introduction of transition techniques in the class. Connecting students to the actions of classroom management created a change in the behavioral model so that everyone in the classroom worked together. In order to motivate students to participate in appropriate behavior, they needed to know that their efforts and actions were important. The study was based on the quantitative approach. The Population of the study was all Government Secondary school students in district Peshawar. A stratified sampling technique was used for the collection of sample size. The Sample size of the study was 400 students from 20 schools. The instrument used for data collection was a questionnaire.
