Welcome to the Keelat Nursery. Today, we will learn a new rhyme and along with it, a little about our history. In the process of learning the rhyme, we will also observe the culture of how we dress, speak, eat, drink and interact.
“Experts have not yet determined exactly what causes phobias to develop. However, there are numerous theories on their development. According to learning theory, phobias develop when fear responses are reinforced or punished. Both reinforcement and punishment can be positive or negative.
Positive reinforcement is the presentation of something positive, such as a parent rewarding a child for staying away from a snake. Positive punishment is the presentation of something negative, such as a child being bitten by a snake.” Lisa Fritscher, B.A. (Psychology)
About the Lecher of Art
The Lecher of Art is a series of performance-presentations that revisits ways of exploring the art of speech while ‘lecherously’ engaging the audience. These seemingly fictional, un-assumed and alternative methodologies of speech and presentation contradict the authoritative, anticipated and doctrinal manners in which lectures are conventionally delivered.
