Students, what did you discover when you mixed the substances?
This is so boring
Remember for anyone that participates this week will receive a movie pass
Yes Mike, go ahead
It creates bubbles and carbon dioxide
Mike discontinued his in appropriate comments when he was reminded that if he participated in the lesson that he would be rewarded with a movie ticket. The model of motivation according to Skinner and Belmont allowed for the teacher to "effectively achieve desired outcomes".
Mike, you are very smart. I would love for you to graduate and so I need you to complete your assignments on time.
You know that I know the information so why do I need to do it again?
I know that if your classmates see that you are doing the work they will also be motivated and may even ask you for help.
wow! I understand now I will do my work and help the other students too from now on. Thank you for believing in me.
With constant reinforcement and giving Mike more responsibilities, he was able to adapt a sense of social cultural independence. He no longer needed his teacher to remind him of what to do. She continuously offered great incentives and positive feedback that reassured him that he was doing the right thing. He was constantly motivated to do and be his best even outside of this microsystem.
