Discussion Question 5
Choose ONLY one (1) of the following questions to answer:
(1) Sometimes we learn new tasks using small or “baby” steps. In psychology, we refer to this as shaping, which includes learning as a result of successive approximations. Discuss something you either learned or taught using shaping techniques. Be sure to explain how shaping was at work in your example.
(2) One way we learn is by observing others. In psychology, we refer to this as observational learning or behavioral modeling. Discuss something you either learned or taught using behavioral modeling techniques. Since we can learn both positive and negative behaviors through observation, feel free to discuss a positive or negative learning experience.
