In this week’s Learning Resources you read about Skinner’s radical behaviorism. Skinner’s learning principles can be applied in the areas of behavior management and education. For example,
“reinforcement” is one of Skinner’s learning principles and refers to anything that increases the likelihood a response will recur. In a classroom, this learning principle can be seen in the form of a “token economy,” whereby the teacher awards tokens immediately after a desirable behavior as a technique to reinforce the desirable behavior and decrease undesirable behavior. The tokens can later be exchanged for a meaningful item or privilege.

For this Assignment, you will describe specific instances in your own life experiences, or life experiences you have observed in others, that seem to be consistent with Skinner’s learning principles and use your own judgment to evaluate their effectiveness and appropriateness.
