What is the difference between positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement?
Positive reinforcement utilizes the use of rewards in order to help motivate a wanted behavior. ex: Peter gets an extra 5 minutes of TV is he eats all his vegetables. Negative reinforcement removes a desired reward/item in response to an unwanted behavior. ex: Peter looses his TV time if he does not eat all his vegetables.
What is the difference between passive-voice and active-voice in a sentence?
In passive-voice sentences, the subject of the sentence is being acted upon rather than doing the action. For example, "The test was failed by the class." An active-voice example would be , "The class failed the test". It is often simpler and less confusing to use an active-voice approach.
