Tokens for the Behavior Analysis Classroom: A Teaching Guide.
Bushell, Don, Jr.
This manual briefly describes, in both English and Spanish, the basics of behavior analysis classroom procedures involving a token system. The token system is an exchange system. Teachers give the children tokens (any object such as a poker chip, marble or card) for acceptable behavior (paying attention, working on an assignment, correct answers, helping, etc.), and the children give the teacher tokens for things they desire (stories, games, recess, play materials, etc.). To keep the exchange going, behavior analysis classrooms have alternating earning periods and spending periods throughout each day. The manual describes procedures for giving tokens and exchanging tokens, helpful accessories for a behavior analysis classroom, and ideas for handling on-the-job problems which may emerge. Also included in the manual is a list of addresses of Behavior Analysis Follow Through projects in the United States. (Author/SS)
