Last week, Mrs. Lark’s A.P. Psychology students hosted a very special guest as they explored effective principles of Operant Conditioning as part of their Learning chapter. Sir Marty, our 4-month old campus comfort dog, graciously stopped in to demonstrate his training regimen to the class, providing students with a fascinating real-world application of Operant Conditioning principles as well as some much-appreciated love and cuddles.
The students were able to see in action the very principles of Operant Conditioning they’d learned about, and it was a treat for everyone to get some Marty cuddles-a wonderful form of positive reinforcement provided right in the middle of the school day! Thanks, Marty!
