Flagged for attention.[edit]

I posted this article on WP:CLEAN and tagged it for cleanup on the basis of bad formatting and navigation/sectioning. I will also request that it be semiprotected soon. Kingsocarso (talk) 22:27, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

TV Guide[edit]

This quotation contains a spelling error, "The criticism extended to TV Guide, which featured an interview with Skinner and called his ideas "the teaming [sic] of mankind through a system of dog obedience schools for all". Should be " ... taming of ... ". Autodidact1 (talk) 10:49, 16 November 2013 (UTC)

Request for Comments[edit]

There is an RfC on the question of using "Religion: None" vs. "Religion: None (atheist)" in the infobox on this and other similar pages.

The RfC is at Template talk:Infobox person#RfC: Religion infobox entries for individuals that have no religion.

Please help us determine consensus on this issue. --Guy Macon (talk) 17:08, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Skinner on Education[edit]

I plan to contribute additional information detailing Skinner's views on education. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tiff1194 (talkcontribs) 18:15, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

B.F. Skinner's perspective on education begins with understanding that learning is a fundamental change in behavior. Both positive and negative consequences in response to particular behaviors impact the way we learn. Tiff1194 (talk) 18:39, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
