Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on sharons behavior issues, and solutions through behaviorist approach Paper must be at least 1250 words. Please, no plagiarized work! In this scenario, the environment is perfect to induce stimuli that will encourage a negative response. Consequently, the classroom provides the environment. The stimulus is the sitting still and the response is losing concentration and moving around the classroom.
In as much as the conflict is inevitable in an active classroom where free social interaction occurs (DEVRIES, 1994.p.79), learning is an interacting process involving activities of group participation, in Sharon’s case, her participation in group activities in class acted as an impetus, contrariwise plunging her into displaying totally different set of behavior from what was expected.
Another interesting setting sparking negative behavior is that she is averse to challenge. Whenever challenged she reacts by exhibiting a negative behavior and therefore displays an unexpected reaction.
Time-outs gave to her also elicits a different behavior from what is expected. Therefore it constitutes a negative class setting since fails to fulfill the intended purpose of preventing her from negative behavior.
Walking around with the supervisor and refusing to join with other children during playtime is another scenario likely to spark and encourage negative behavior. Playtime is the moment when children have fun, unwinding their systems and renewing their minds before returning back to class.
Not having her in school at lunch-time like the other students may escalate her negative behavior even more thereby continuing to spark the negative behavior. Though her family is secure, the fact that it is large may act as an impetus for negative behavior. As a young child, she could be suffering neglect and lack of affection which she interprets as rejection.
Since sitting still and concentrating for any length of time is difficult leading her to move around the classroom. Classical conditioning is applied. The naturally occurring stimulus is difficulty in sitting still and concentrating. The learning process .can be made to be more fun by actively engaging her in learning activities such as choosing her to distribute to other pupils learning materials like papers, books, crayons and gauging her concentration by eliciting for answers from her about specific questions asked.
