Counterpoint: Practice versus Process--Rigidity of Reinforcement Requirements Results in Regressive Research: A Reply to Ward.
Biederman, Gerald B.; Davey, Valerie A.
Exceptional Children, v61 n5 p493-97 Mar-Apr 1995
This counterpoint responds to Phillip Ward's commentary on a study by Gerald Biederman and others which concluded that verbal reinforcement in combination with interactive modeling strategies may produce confusion in children with language/learning difficulties. The counterpoint argues that the commentary indicates problems with semantics and with educational practice, not with the experiment. (JDD)
