The Behavioral Perspective in Contemporary Education.
Williams, Robert L.
Teacher Educator, v35 n2 p44-60 Aut 1999
Contrasts the philosophical premises of behaviorism with those of humanism and cognitivism, examining behavioral contributions in three areas for educators (description and explanation of student performance and evaluation of educational interventions). Alteration of classroom environment is represented as the principal strategy for promoting student behavior. The article asserts that learning research must involve reliable assessment, replicable interventions, and generalizable results. (SM)
