Learning Principles

This discussion has two options. Select one of the options and indicate which one you chose in your response.Option A:
Learning through classical conditioning occurs across the lifespan. It
can be associated with pain (like a trip to the dentist), or with
pleasure (like the endorphins released in response to exercise). Select
one example of learning that can occur through classical conditioning.
You cannot select Pavlov s experiment that is described in your
textbook. Clearly describe your learning example, and detail each of
the following for the example you selected: Unconditioned stimulus > Unconditioned ResponseConditioned Stimulus > Unconditioned Response Conditioned Stimulus >Conditioned ResponseOption B:
Ten-year-old Billy has started to use foul language in casual
conversation just as his mother does. She laughs when Billy uses this
language and does not see it as an issue. It is only when Billy gets in
trouble and his mother is called to the school that she recognizes there
may be a problem.
As Billy s school teacher, explain and provide examples of how you would
help him overcome the use of this foul language through operant
conditioning (e.g., you may use positive reinforcement, negative
reinforcement, punishment).
Lastly, what advice would you give to Billy s mom about how she might
deal with this problem at home? Be sure to explain the role
observational learning plays in this behavior, and what his mother could
do differently to help him avoid this behavior.
Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words and utilize at least
one scholarly source (e.g., the course textbook, a peer-reviewed article
from the Ashford University Library, or a professional web source),
cited according to APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
