Question 4: SOLUTION

What should we avoid, when applying positive reinforcement?

  1. High fives, Fist bumps
  2. Emphasize what they did correct
  3. Say "don't do..."
    • CORRECT: Avoid saying this!
  4. None of the above

SOLUTION: Positive reinforcement is a key to efficient learning. Sometimes it's okay to show the kids the wrong way, but you want to try your best to use positive phrases when telling a student what to do.  Wrong way: "don't break your wrists while putting". Right way: "what happens when we break our wrists while putting? What letter do we do while putting?  If we break our wrists while putting, then are we doing the letter "Y"? Now show me some straight wrists.  Now copy me (demonstrate)."
