Transcript of Behaviorist Approach
Father of Modern Behaviorism
Important to study and understand data obtained from observed human behavior B.F Skinner
Introduced Operant Conditioning
The frequency of a behavior can be increased by a reinforcing event which occurs immediately after the desired behavior The behaviorist approach follows the idea that learning is externally motivated.
This idea ignores the curious nature of children
The behaviorist approach uses three techniques to manage classroom behavior

The curriculum is often not planned centered around the individual abilities of the students
Focuses on more direct instruction Implications for Teaching Using Self-Modification to Change Behavior:
The Six Step Plan Step 1: Identify a problem of behavior Step 2: Select specific target behaviors Step 3: Collect baseline data for the behavior Step 4: Plan your program Step 5: Carrying out the program Step 6: Terminating your program References The behaviorist approach.
