A Token Manual for Behavior Analysis Classrooms.
Bushell, Don, Jr.
This dual language manual, written in both Spanish and English, will help the teacher in a Behavior Analysis classroom utilize the Token System to motivate, reinforce, and foster independence in pupils' learning activities. The rationale and procedures for earning, giving, and exchanging tokens is clearly explained. The use of helpful accessories such as a kitchen timer to announce when it is time to exchange tokens earned for items or events, token aprons with pockets, and tickets (alternatives to tokens) are described. Some solutions are presented to common problems (tokens put in mouth, stealing tokens, and the have-not-child who has not earned enough tokens for exchange). The manual serves as a practical guide for elementary or preschool teachers who work in classrooms where positive reinforcement for good learning behavior is practiced. (WY)
