Behavior analysis for effective teaching.


Behavior analysis for effective teaching.

Vargas, Julie S.



362 pages




For teachers and undergraduate and graduate students in education, educational psychology, and psychology and social work, Vargas explains the science of behavior analysis and how to apply it in the classroom. She discusses how to use this science to find the causes of behavior, understand learning, set goals to improve achievement, better describe progress, evaluate instructional activities, and shape behavior. She also addresses punishment and reasons to avoid it, standards, and aspects of behavior not addressed by standardized testing. Vargas is a former third and fourth grade teacher who has taught behavior analysis and instructional design to undergraduate education majors and teachers for 30 years.
