Editor: B. F. Skinner Foundation

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In 1934, at the age of 30, B. F. Skinner found himself at a dinner sitting next to Professor Alfred North Whitehead. Never one to lose an opportunity to promote behaviorism, Skinner expounded its main tenets to the distinguished philosopher. Whitehead acknowledged that science might account for most of human behavior but he would not include verbal behavior. He ended the discussion with a challenge: "Let me see you," he said, "account for my behavior as I sit here saying, 'No black scorpion is falling upon this table.'" The next morning Skinner began this book. It took him over twenty years to complete. This book extends the laboratory-based principles of selection by consequences to account for what people say, write, gesture, and think. Skinner argues that verbal behavior requires a separate analysis because it does not operate on the environment directly, but rather through the behavior of other people in a verbal community. He illustrates his thesis with examples from literature, the arts, and sciences, as well as from his own verbal behavior and that of his colleagues and children. Perhaps it is because this theoretical work provides a way to approach that most human of human behavior that Skinner ofter called Verbal Behavior his most important work.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Primary text or supplement for graduate-level courses or seminars on applied behavior analysis, educational reform, and evidence-based curriculum and instruction. The nineteen chapters in this edited volume were developed from presentations given at The Ohio State University's Third Focus on Behavior Analysis in Education Conference. The contributing authors present literature reviews, conceptual analyses, and data from several original studies; they describe advancements in curricula, classroom and schoolwide interventions, and teacher training programs; and they offer personal perspectives on the current status and future directions of behavior analysis in education. This text is an ideal resource for three groups (1) educators seeking information and resources on measurably effective instructional tools; (2) students of behavior analysis wishing to learn about its applications, accomplishments, and future research needs in education; and (3) anyone-pre-service education major, in-service teacher, school administrator, parent, or consumer-who has heard about the "behavioral approach" and wonders what it is all about.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The US Dept. of Education, in conjunction with the US Dept. of Health and Human Services, recently unveiled a $50 million effort to expand research on early childhood cognitive development. A key issue identified requiring more information and research was the education and professional development of educators. Along these lines, Doug Greer has prepared a book discussing how best to teach, how to design functional curricula, and how to support teachers in using state-of-the-art science instruction materials. The book provides important information both to trainers of future teachers, current teachers, and to supervisors and policy makers in education. To trainers there is information on how to motivate, mentor, and instruct in-service teachers to use the best scientifically based teaching strategies and tactics. To in-service teachers, there is information on how to provide individualized instruction in classrooms with multiple learning and behavior problems, school interventions to help prevent vandalism and truancy, and how curricula and instruction can be designed to teach functional repetoirs rather than inert ideas. To policy makers and supervisors, the book discusses how to determine the effectiveness of curricular innitiatives toward meeting mandated standards in national assessments. Doug Greer was recently awarded the Fred S. Keller Award for Distinguished Contributions to Education by APA for the research and application of the material covered in this book. School programs incorporating the material used in this book have produced 4-7 times more learning outcomes for students than control and baseline educational programs (see www.cabas.com) The book provides research-based and field-tested procedures for: * Teaching students of all ability levels ranging from preschool to secondary school * How to teach special education students in the context of a regular classroom * Best practices for all teachers to teach more effectively * Means of monitoring and motivating teachers' practices * A comprehensive and system-wide science of teaching—post modern-postmodern! * Tested procedures that result in four to seven times more learning for all students * Tested procedures for supervisors to use with teachers that result in significant student learning * Tested procedures for providing the highest accountability * A systems approach for schooling problems that provide solutions rather than blame * Parent approved and parent requested educational practices * Means for psychologists to work with teachers and students to solve behavior and learning problems * A comprehensive systems science of schooling * An advanced and sophisticated science of pedagogy and curriculum design * Students who are not being served with traditional education can meet or exceed the performance of their more fortunate peers, * Supervisors can mentor teachers and therapists to provide state of the science instruction * Parent education can create a professional setting for parents, educators, and therapists to work together in the best interests of the student, * Teachers and supervisors who measure as they teach produce significantly better outcomes for students, * Systemic solutions to instructional and behavioral problems involving teachers, parents, supervisors provide means to pursue problems to their solution, * A science of teaching, as opposed to an art of teaching, can provide an educational system that treats the students and the parents as the clients.
