Description

The focus of research is on the different types of reinforcement used in the classroom and the affects that they have both in negative and positive ways. Specifically, I focus in on positive reinforcement, reward systems, and negative reinforcement. My aim was to answer the question: How does using different types of reinforcement affect teaching practice? This question was chosen to help teachers who are struggling with students with poor behavior and to inform them of the results of using certain types of reinforcement. Findings reveal that using negative reinforcement was unproductive for my teaching practice and using positive reinforcement helped with managing behavior in my classroom. Implications are also discussed.
