For undergraduate/graduate courses in Behavior Modification, Behavior Therapy, and Behavior Management. This text offers a solid introduction to the principles of behavior using a clear, interesting, entertaining style with many case studies and everyday examples while maintaining a high level of intellectual rigor and addressing fundamental concepts. Since writing the first edition of Principles of Behavior the authors have sought to address a unique need of the students in their behavior modification classes: levels of student ability, experience, and exposure to the topics addressed in these courses often varied greatly. From freshman undergradute courses straight through graduate level research, there was a need for a text that was flexible yet rigorous enough to appeal to both the novice and advanced student. Here, the authors have been able to do just that. Princibles of Behavior offers a solid introduction to the principles of behavior using a clear, interesting, entertaining style with many case studies and everyday examples while maintaining a high level of intellectual rigor and addressing fundamental concepts.

This book reviews how people and animals learn and how their behaviors are changed as a result of learning. It describes the most important principles, theories, controversies, and experiments that pertain to learning and behavior that are applicable to diverse species and different learning situations. Both classic studies and recent trends and developments are explored, providing a comprehensive survey of the field. Although the behavioral approach is emphasized, many cognitive theories are covered as well, along with a chapter on comparative cognition. Real-world examples and analogies make the concepts and theories more concrete and relevant to students. In addition, most chapters provide examples of how the principles covered have been applied in behavior modification and therapy. Thoroughly updated, each chapter features many new studies and references that reflect recent developments in the field. Learning objectives, bold-faced key terms, practice quizzes, a chapter summary, review questions, and a glossary are included. ? The volume is intended for undergraduate or graduate courses in psychology of learning, (human) learning, introduction to learning, learning processes, animal behavior, (principles of) learning and behavior, conditioning and learning, learning and motivation, experimental analysis of behavior, behaviorism, and behavior analysis.?

It provides teachers with a very practical system to influence students to choose to behave productively and to strive for academic success. This widely used text presents an array of decision-making options that guide teachers in developing positive, pro-social classroom learning environments through relationship building, effective teaching strategies, and deliberate structuring of the classroom environment. The text also provides sets of principles to intervene when students are not focused in they way should be and to help them choose more productive behaviors. The text also addresses working within the classroom and with families and other school resources to help students who exhibit chronic behavior problems. Thoroughly revised and updated, Principles of Classroom Management: A Professional Decision-Making Model, 7th Edition, includes a much stronger focus on relationship building as a core activity in all phases of teaching(See new Chapter 7 as well as Chapters 3, 4, 5, 10, and 11) increased attention to the principles of motivation and their application in helping students to set high expectations for themselves and to believe they can achieve them(See new Chapter 7 as well as Chapters 3, 4, 5, 10, and 11) greater coverage of the knowledge teachers need to develop about cultural differences (Throughout the text) much more coverage of the challenges posed by new technologies, including cyber-bullying, cyber-cheating, and sexting (See Chapters 2 and 3) a variety of new cases as well as pre and post-chapter reflective activities (New iterative cases are included at the end of Chapters 1, 4, 7, and 11 and new cases are also embedded in Chapters 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10.) From reviews of the book: “The text provides a very comprehensive view of classroom management that builds hierarchically, logically, and strategically. . . . The text provides not only the skills for effective classroom management . . ., but [it] includes a conceptual and theoretical perspective that is comprehensive and coupled with numerous examples and case studies that clarify and strengthen.” –Marilyn Howe, Clarion University of Pennsylvania “I really like the way in which the authors engage readers from the beginning in a realistic conversation about the influence and importance of handling behaviour problems at all levels.” –Eleanor Wilson, University of Virginia

Most of the classroom discipline problems are actually created by the teacher. The way a kid can be sure of getting her reinforcing attention is by misbehaving. If you put misbehaving on extinction and provide other avenues to reinforcement, there will be no discipline problems.

This thoroughly updated edition provides a balanced review of the core methods and the latest research on animal learning and human memory. The relevance of basic principles is highlighted throughout via everyday examples to ignite student interest, along with more traditional examples from human and animal laboratory studies. Individual differences in age, gender, learning style, cultural background, or special abilities (such as the math gifted) are highlighted within each chapter to help students see how the principles may be generalized to other subject populations. The basic processes of learning – such as classical and instrumental conditioning and encoding and storage in long-term memory in addition to implicit memory, spatial learning, and remembering in the world outside the laboratory – are reviewed. The general rules of learning are described along with the exceptions, limitations, and best applications of these rules. The relationship between the fields of neuropsychology and learning and memory is stressed throughout. The relevance of this research to other disciplines is reflected in the tone of the writing and is demonstrated through a variety of examples from education, neuropsychology, rehabilitation, psychiatry, nursing and medicine, I/O and consumer psychology, and animal behavior. Each chapter begins with an outline and concludes with a detailed summary. A website for instructors and students accompanies the book. Updated throughout with new research findings and examples the new edition features: A streamlined presentation for today’s busy students. As in the past, the author supports each concept with a research example and real-life application, but the duplicate example or application now appears on the website so instructors can use the additional material to illustrate the concepts in class. Expanded coverage of neuroscience that reflects the current research of the field including aversive conditioning (Ch. 5) and animal working memory (Ch. 8). More examples of research on student learning that use the same variables discussed in the chapter, but applies them in a classroom or student’s study environment. This includes research that applies encoding techniques to student learning, for example: studying: recommendations from experts (Ch. 1); the benefits of testing (Ch. 9); and Joshua Foer’s Moonwalking with Einstein, on his quest to become a memory expert (Ch. 6). More coverage of unconscious learning and knowledge (Ch. 11). Increased coverage of reinforcement and addiction (Ch. 4), causal and language learning (Ch. 6), working memory (WM) and the effects of training on WM, and the comparative evolution of WM in different species (Ch. 8), and genetics and learning (Ch. 12).
