Suggested Responses: Students should describe strategies which involve a system of rewards to shape the child's desirable behavior. Giving praise or stickers for hand-raising, turn-taking, and ignoring calling-out would be appropriate examples. Time out should be mentioned as a possible strategy. Praising other children's hand-raising and modeling turn-taking would also be acceptable examples. Use of negative reinforcers, such as taking recess away from the child, would not be an appropriate application of the behaviorist theory.
