Use the following links as well as chapter 6 in Bernstein to familiarize yourself with the main learning theorists and then make a blog post describing and comparing two of the theorists and their theories. For example, you could compare Ivan Pavlov and John Watson pointing out how Watson took Pavlov's Classical Conditioning and expanded it into the realm of emotion.
