| Learning | March 16, 2015

(I am working as a TA to receive my cost-of-living stipend while pursuing my PhD. I am teaching a review session for an upcoming exam, and discussing operant conditioning with my class.)

Me: “So, say we have a first-grader who keeps getting out of their seat, and we want to find some way to encourage him to stay seated during class. What can we do?”

Student: “Tranquilize him?”

Me: “…I guess.”
