Summary of Theory (include citations/sources used in summary) B.F. Skinner’s theory was that anything is susceptible to have their behavior changed by certain conditioning. This means that everyone will change their own behavior based on what the response is around them. If someone responds to their actions positively, then the subject, or student in this case, is likely to do the specific action again. If their actions are received negatively, then they are more likely to stop preforming those behaviors. Skinner called this “behavior modification,” where behavior is shaped by the reinforcement given, which can be negative or positive.
