Students will apply schedules of reinforcement as they "gamble" to see how the schedules affect their behavior. Teachers "stack the decks" and students "gamble" with candy while they try to identify the pattern of schedule of reinforcement. Fixed, Variable, Ratio, Interval, Extinction and Continuous reinforcements are addressed. This is a favorite of my students!
Resource includes lesson plan, student organizer, and ticket out the door with reflection questions.
