3.2 Consultation with Mrs. Howell Part 2

Mrs. Howell explains she starts by giving students two tangibles of their choosing to hold for use at free time. She points out that by doing so, she bypasses the need to worry about delivering reinforcers. Furthermore, Mrs. Howell argues the approach prevents any negative impact to the student’s self-esteem if rewards are not earned. She clarifies a rule in which any student’s acting out or disrupting the lesson in any way results in forfeiture of one of the items. Another such occurrence then leads to loss of the other item. Nonetheless, they still have free time in which to choose activities available to anyone.
