Classroom Uses Positive Reinforcement: If a student performs well academically and receives positive reinforcement or a reward, the student will want to achieve again! Punishment: A student turns in a paper late, and the teacher gives them a zero. The student learns that he must turn in things on time!
Behavioral change occurs for a reason! The students work for certain things that bring them constructive feelings, and for approval from people they look up to. They learn to change behaviors to please the things they have learned to value.
