Effectiveness of positive reinforcement in classroom?
Positive reinforcement is very effective in classrooms. If you positively reinforce students in a classroom with anything from 5 mins free time to a tangible reinforcer or even verbal priase you will see an increase in the behaviour you are reinforcing. You must make sure when reinforcing an individual with something that they really and truly want what you are offering. If you do not see a change in the individuals behaviour, they are likely not being effectively reinforced. You can do positive reinforcement methods in classrooms like a Token Economy or individual reinforcement. I would say if you are considering using positive reinforcement techniques in a classroom to do some research on Applied Behaviour Analysis. There is tons of literature on the effectiveness of positive reinforcement and tips and techniques to improve the classroom.
Asked in Cat Behavior, Emotions
Your cat gets mad at your dad and brother but takes all his anger out on you how do you stop this behavior?
When this happens, tell your dad and brother to give your cat a treat once in a while so your cat thinks only of them as good things. If this doesn't work, then you only give it a treat when its nice to you. Cats are not people. They do not get angry and hold grudges, they react out of instinct and need for survival. If your brother and dad are mean to the cat, the cat may react negatively to whomever/whatever it sees first. The cat does not specifically seek you to take out its anger. You can reinforce positive behaviour towards you by using treats or extra affection. Negative reinforcement does not work. Reward good behaviour and ignore negative to reinforce the positive behaviour.

Asked in Psychology
What is it called when a response is followed by the removal of an unpleasant event?
Negative reinforcement. Reinforcement is an aspect of behaviourism where an action or response is associated with an outcome, which affects the likelihood of that action/response being repeated. In positive reinforcement, a behaviour leads to or is at least associated with a positive outcome, meaning the individual is more likely to repeat that behaviour in the hope of (whether conscious or unconscious) repeating the positive outcome. In negative reinforcement, the behaviour is associated with the avoidance of an aversive or negative outcome or event and so the behaviour is repeated in at attempt to further avoid such an event.

What is innate behavior and learned behavior?
Innate behaviour is when you have already got that behaviour "inbuilt" in your genes but learned behaviour is when you either in psychology terms: learn through Classical conditioning - by associating a stimulus with a response learn through operant conditioning - through positive/negative reinforcing - encouraging a behaviour to be repeated! =)
Asked in Human Behavior, Psychological Disciplines
Why behavior is important for human being?
It tells to society who you are. The best is your behaviour the more accepted you are in your community. Good behaviour includes to dress yourself conveniently, say hello to people you meet anywhere, (This means that you are popular, so you use to act nicely, adding positive points to you.) Behaviour standards stands for good behaviour, which is interesting to society. Bad behaviour is another issue.

Asked in Human Behavior
What is the meaning of behaviour breeds behaviour?
Behaviour means the manner in which one behaves. The actions or reactions of a person or animal in response to external or internal stimuli. Behavior breeds behavior" - this means that not only will your actions and behavior affect those around you, but others can affect yours too. If you want to improve your business and success, you need to do two things; 1) You must surround yourself with positive people, positive energy, and engage in positive activities because this will affect and influence the path of your life and your business 2) You must ensure that your own actions are positive, and that you put out positive energy yourself, because others will be affected by you.
