Cipani, Ennio C.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v27 n4 p36-40 Sum 1995
This article examines the concept of negative reinforcement in relation to the maintenance of off-task and disruptive behaviors in classrooms. Suggestions are given for determining whether negative reinforcement (in the form of escape from the instructional task) or teacher attention is maintaining the behavior. Suggestions for making tasks less aversive are also offered. (DB)
