Modeling and Cognitive Behavior: The Effects of Modeling, Modes of Modeling and Selected Model Attributes on Rule-Governed Language Behavior.
Grieshop, James Ivo
The effect of modeling on the performance of rule-governed language behaviors of 208 male and female, Anglo and Chicano, sixth grade students in Albuquerque, N.M. was experimentally investigated. Eight boys and 8 girls (4 each Chicano and Anglo) were randomly assigned to each of the 12 experimental conditions and to the control group. Three modes of modeling were used: live, audio-taped, and written. Within each mode, the age and ethnicity of the model were manipulated. The results of the study indicated that sixth grade students, with neither reinforcement nor instructions to imitate, were able to abstract rules governing the use of modeled sentences and subsequently to use those rules to generate new sentences response to novel stimuli. Imitation phase stimulus pictures and modeled sentences are included. (PS)
