B.F. Skinner And Programmed Instruction
[ send me this paper ]
An 18 page paper. B.F. Skinner has often been called the most influential behaviorist in history and definitely the most influential in the field of learning theory. His operant behaviorism laid the foundation for learning theories that have been used in our classrooms for the last forty years both in terms of managing classrooms and in terms of instructional strategies. One of the offshoots of his work was programmed instruction, also called programmed learning. This paper explains Skinner's theories and provides a history of programmed instruction. It then discusses the integration of the two. The writer also makes a point to discuss the fact that Skinner's theories are theories and not processes. Examples are included. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

Baddeley’s Model of Short Term or “Working” Memory
[ send me this paper ]
This 12 page report discusses Alan Baddeley’s working memory model (published with Gregory Hitch in 1974). According to the model, working memory consists of three components: a phonological (articulatory) loop that is responsible for speech-based information, a visuospatial sketch pad that is responsible for visual images, and a central executive which integrates information from the two other structures in conjunction with information from long term memory. In his model of working memory, Baddeley demonstrated that those multiple components of working memory serve as the mechanisms for the temporary maintenance of information. The central executive also plays a role in planning and controlling behavior. What Baddeley ultimately demonstrates, both through his model and his many other contributions in the field, is what an important role memory plays in the day-to-day lives of human beings. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Behavioral Evolution and the Formation of Culture
[ send me this paper ]
An 8 page discussion of behavioral evolution and the role of behavioral science in that evolution. Notes that behavioral changes occur over time on both an individual level and a cultural level. Compares these changes with biological evolution through the process of natural selection. Warns that while the intervention of behavioral science may be of positive use in correcting truly aberrant individual behavior, it could be of tremendous adverse impact to cultural evolution as a whole. Encourages cultural self-control and warns against the approach of Westernization and deliberate cultural design and intervention. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
