principles associated with each theory

principles associated with each theory

principles associated with each theory. For this assignment, you must create an outline and annotated bibliography

Your outline should contain a heading for each of the three required conditioning theories (classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and neobehaviorism)


. Each heading should have a one- to two sentence description of that theory.

Under each heading, you must include sub-headings as outlined below, with a two-to three sentence description of each.

The description should demonstrate that you have done significant research, evaluation, and critical thinking on the issues related to each theory as well as its application to various learning environments.

For example:

A. Describe the major principles associated with each theory.

B. Explain the contributions of the major theorists who worked to develop each theory.

C. Define each theory as they relate to the psychology of learning.

D. Summarize how each theory makes use of prior experience in explaining how people learn.

E. Describe how each theory explains how permanent change in behavior takes place.

F. Apply each theory to a real world setting (e.g., schools, treatment facilities, businesses, social activities).

Conditioning Theory

Definition: The Conditioning Theory refers to the behavioral process, whereby a reaction (response) becomes more frequent to a given object (stimulus) as a result of reinforcement, which is a reward for the response in a given situation.
