Bruce Hamm Bruce Hamm "everyone has suffered, and unfortunately continues to suffer, from mentalistic theories of learning in education ...yet the point of education can be stated in behavioral terms: a teacher arranges contingencies under which the student acquires behavior which will be useful to him under other contingencies later on. The instructional contingencies must be contrived...The teacher cannot bring enough of the real life of the student into the classroom to build behavior appropriate to the contingencies he will encounter later. The behaviors to be constructed in advance are as much a matter of productive thinking and creativity as of plain facts and skills.". Skinner, About Behaviorism
