Drazin behaviorism

  1. 1. By: Joshua Drazin
  2. 2. What is Behaviorism? John B. Watson Behaviorism inKey People of Behaviorism the classroomBehaviorism in my classroom
  3. 3.  A theory of learning based upon the idea that all behaviors are acquired through conditioning Conditioning occurs through interacting with the environment There are two typed of conditioning, classical and operant
  4. 4. Conditioning  Classical conditioning is technique used in behavioral training in which a naturally occurring stimulus is paired with a response  Operant conditioning is a method of learning that occurs through rewards and punishments for behavior.
  5. 5.  Largely centered around experiments by Ivan Pavlov His work centered around conditioning His findings were made more relevant by the launching of “Psychology as the behaviorist Views It” by John B. Watson
  6. 6.  B.F. Skinner found that by rewarding successive approximation of movements, he could train a bird Skinner introduced operant conditioning and shaping
  7. 7.  Was interested in stimulus-response reactions to various situations Followed the findings of Pavlov’s dog experiments First presented his ideas at psychological meetings between 1908 and 1912, and by 1912 was using the term "behaviorist."
  8. 8.  In 1916 began observing infants The experiment centered around a baby and a white lab rat The experiment successfully showed the behaviorist idea of association
  9. 9.  In a classroom, teachers can reward students for right answers. Teachers can instruct by conditioning the student’s behavior. Teachers who use behaviorist techniques will repeat this pattern until it becomes second nature.
  10. 10.  Behaviorist teachers believe that students will make mistakes without using repetition and conditioning. However, some students might begin to expect rewards for every behavior and if there is not a reward to be given, they will not give their work the best of their ability.
  11. 11.  In my future classroom I plan to reward the students who are doing well. If you are succeeding with your work I will encourage them to keep working by giving them treats and other miscellaneous things.
  12. 12.  I will also focus on not rewarding too much. I will reward my students where I see fit, so they don’t expect something for every time they do good. However, if they are doing good I will praise them in other ways by telling them so and making sure they know that they are doing the right thing.
