Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering the basics of operant conditioning. I use this for my AP Psychology class.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is guaranteed to capture student attention. Each slide has rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Topics covered include:
Differences Between Classical Conditioning and Operant Conditioning
Edward Thorndike and his Cat Studies
Thorndike's Law of Effect
Reinforcement vs. Punishment
Negative vs. Positive
Limitations of Punishment
Numerous examples of every type of operant conditioning
Review questions for students to practice operant conditioning
