What we would like you to do is to either go to NPR (http://www.npr.org/ ), the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/ ), there are some good news source links at the bottom of the following page (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/listed in their news sources) and read, watch, or listen to something that is interesting to you and relates to reinforcement.
For your news I would like you to 1) briefly describe/summarize your piece, 2) tell us what behavior (target behavior) you are using that illustrates a behavioral concept we have studies so far, 3) tell us what the consequence of the behavior is, 4) tell us how, that consequence will alter the frequency of the behavior, 5) tell us if the consequence involves the addition of something or if it involves the removal of something, finally 6) tell us to the antecedent is.
Please then list the ABC's of the behavior
Now state if this is an example of positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, extinction etc. Explain why.
Tell us if it involves extinction, establishing operations, use as many terms from the chapters we have already covered as you can.
For originality sake, make sure the news pieces you are not using the same pieces of news the other students before you just used.
When you are done, copy and paste the URLs at the bottom so we can go and see the sources you used.
Once you are done with your post make list of the terms and terminology you used in your post.
Let us know if you have any questions.
