Respond to the following questions in 175 to 350 words each.


  1. Choose a behavior you would like to shape on someone you know. Select
    a terminal and initial behavior and the steps you would use to shape the
    behavior. Would you utilize punishment or reinforcement? Would fixed or
    variable outcomes play a role in your procedure?


  1. Choose a task that you would teach a 5-year-old child to
    perform. Consider some of the following: tying shoe laces, brushing teeth,
    making a sandwich, making a bed, and so forth. What would your task
    analysis look like? For example, what would the steps be and how many steps
    would you have? Once you develop the task analysis, what might you do
    before putting it into place to ensure its effectiveness?


  1. You just taught a shy 2nd-grade student how to ask for help
    when he needed it on his vocabulary sight words rather than sitting
    quietly and not completing his work. However, you want the behavior to
    occur in other settings when he needs help. What process would you follow
    to teach him how to ask for help in multiple contexts?


  1. Conversly, one of the 2nd-grade boy’s classmates is raising her
    hand and asking for help even on tasks she knows how to complete. This happens
    during recess, in phys ed, or when given a task she has completed multiple
    times before. What process would you follow to teach when and where
    raising her hand is appropriate?
