Additional Book Details

The first step in promoting new behavior is getting the behavior to occur so that it can be reinforced with praise, feedback, or other things the person values. One important way to initiate new behavior is to prompt it. Behavioral research has documented ways of making prompts work better at guiding behavior that teachers, parents, coaches, managers, and administrators want to promote. Of course, once the behavior occurs, it is necessary to reinforce or select it so that it continues to occur in the absence of prompts. If a prompt is well crafted, it can establish the behavior very quickly and easily. This book presents a program designed to help instructors and students to become more skillful in using this powerful instructional tool.
