training the press the BF Skinner way

Y'no, at college in America, one takes many courses. Certain ideas come up again, and again, in other courses. The education school professors at Ohio University were Deweyists (experiential, discovery learning); out in the world it was the Skinnerians (behaviourists); i was a Thomist with Socratic method [naturally, i was a proponent of a scoffed at minority]. Well, i saw these handy-dandy charts on the tweety by a behaviourist. She [i think it was (Caroline O. (click)] has adeptly described a situation we suffer through. Operant conditioning, no pigeons harmed in this study.
