Question and answer
•Sometimes, people unknowingly reinforce undesirable behaviors. Provide an example of this and discuss the resulting consequences. •Discuss how one can avoid rewarding wrong behaviors. •Based on what you have learned about rewarding behavior, what advice would you give to the 6th grade teacher?
g
A situation where this often occurs is in the classroom. Children who act up in class want attention from the teacher. [ So when the teacher turns around to tell them off for acting up, even though they may think the child is being punished by being told off in front of the class, the child behaviour is being reinforced as he is getting what he wants - attention. Therefore the next time they want attention they will just act up again. In this certain situation, one way to avoid reinforcing the child is to utterly and completely ignore the child, completely forget he exists. Then after the
class when all the children have left, punish him by making him lose some of his lunch time, assign extra homework, or send him to speak with a higher teacher, etc This should discourage the bad behaviour in class ]

•What forces contributed to the cultural makeup of early civilizations? •What social issues arose because of this cultural makeup? •What were the main cultural influences on early civilizations? •From your perspective what are the pros and cons of revisionist history? Explain your response
Weegy: The first culture started in the days of the caveman. Their culture revolved around family, hunting, and the dangers that were present during that time. Their stories were passed down through the generations. [ As they moved around to different lands, their culture changed to include new experiences. In each early civilization, that main forces were simple, survival and creating new tools to facilitate this survival. As humans evolved, so did their culture. Humans became more intelligent and created tools, homes, and simple machines to help them develop the land and survive. Forms of religion and worship were also forces that helped to shape many early civilizations.Because different groupings of humans developed different cultures, misunderstandings and disagreements over land became more common. If two groups could not understand each other, it is easy to get offended without cause. Wars lead to the development of armies and more food production. The development of tools lead to the development of weapons. Religious wars also became common as different cultures worshiped different deitiesWhat were the main cultural influences on early civilizations? In the beginning, the main influences were the desire for food, clothing, warmth, and housing for their families. In later times, food, housing, region, and the security were the influences present. ] (More)

what are example of evolutionary psychology
Weegy: A common example is language acquisition. All humans, assuming normal physical structure, are capable of learning language. At some point in history, early man developed language skills beyond grunting and pointing.

Which language or languages are learned depends on the language spoken in the home and neighborhood, demonstrating the importance of cultural input. ] (More)

what are consequences of positive and negative?
Weegy: The Negative & Positive Consequences of the Korean War; Proper Behavior Management Consequences for Kindergarten Children; Comments You May Also [ Like. ] User: what are consequences of positive and negative reinforcement? Weegy: Positive reinforcement is often associated with a rewards system, when, in reality, it is an attempt to create sustained positive behavior. For example, a limited time sales bonus is not positive reinforcement. It is an example of a reward. [ Sustained quarterly sales bonuses based on exceeding goals is positive reinforcement. Likewise, negative reinforcement is not punishment. For example, suspending an employee for substandard work is punishment. Allowing employees to skip a daily safety training session because the company safety record has improved is negative reinforcement. The effects of reinforcement need to register in terms of changes in long-term behavior. ] (More)
