Brent, George; And Others
This module cluster enables (a) students to operationally define various classroom behaviors; (b) define and utilize behavioral principles; and (c) correctly employ measurement methods which facilitate information gathering, monitoring, and management of academic and/or "problem" classroom behaviors. It contains modules in the following ten areas: (a) operationally defining behavior, (b) defining operant terms, (c) basic operant principles, (d) analysis of behavior in operant terms, (e) operant measurement techniques, (f) specifying the situation in which measurement takes place, (g) measurement of a discrete response, (h) measurement of a continuous behavior, (i) examples of operant studies, and (j) modification of social behavior (or inappropriate behavior). Each module is broken down into (a) objective, (b) prerequisite, (c) pre-assessment, (d) uniform instructional activities, (e) supplementary instructional activities, (f) post-assessment, and (g) remediation. Many of the modules include behavioral examples which have been carefully selected to reflect the kinds of problems teachers frequently report as warranting "modification." (MK)
