Alanapinell theory

  1. 1. By: Alana Pinell
  2. 2.  What is Behaviorism? Who is behind the Behaviorism? How can the Behaviorism be used in a classroom? How will I use the Behaviorism in my classroom?
  3. 3.  Behaviorism is the prediction and control of human behavior using positive or negative reinforcement. Behaviorism believes that man and animal learn to behave solely through a system of positive and negative rewards.
  4. 4.  The belief is that if you want a child/student to produce a desirable behavior, reward them for it, and the behavior will be repeated. If you respond negatively to a behavior than that behavior will stop.
  5. 5.  (1849-1936) Famous for experiments with dogs. He provided dogs with food every time he rang a bell, eventually the dogs would start to salivate at the sound of the bell with no food being given. Process is called classic conditioning.
  6. 6.  (1904-1990) Did experiments on pigeons and taught them to dance by using positive reinforcement. Skinner believes human behavior was based on stimulus-response theory. Observed when children made attempts at sounds, parents would smile and reinforce them. Eventually children learn to talk through parents reinforcement.
  7. 7.  Teacher’s often use behaviorism in classroom management. When student’s behave well they get candy, when they disrupt the class, they get time-out. Students learn that behaving well produces a reward while being disruptive will produce a punishment.
  8. 8.  Many software programs already use behaviorism. Many children’s games produce a positive sound and/or visual every time a student does something right. In contrast, many will make a harsh sound and/or visual if something is done wrong.
  9. 9.  Reward students with candy and/or stickers when behaving well. Discipline students with time-out when behaving badly. Reward students for good grades with special snacks or extra play time.
  10. 10.  I believe that behaviorism has many positive uses in the classroom, one being classroom management. Behaviorism doesn’t necessarily need negative reinforcement but rather only positive. I think it’s best to reward students for positive actions.
