Back from the Summer of '69, it's the Good Behavior Game! We debunk the rumors that the benefits of this classic group contingency is all hype--it totally works--and rattle off a whole bunch of replications in addition to reviewing the original article that started the craze for this behavioral vaccine.  Then, finally, the wait is over as we crown the worst classroom ever described in research.  That teacher could only wish that her biggest problem was tardy Sailor Moon fans or a zombie apocalypse.  Plus, Rob has a good idea, maybe.
