DABA 610 - Verbal Behavior

In this course students will study the philosophy of verbal behavior and the application of Skinner?s principles. Particular emphasis will be placed on the application of the science of behavior analysis to teaching verbal behavior. The primary verbal operants, which are most often initially discussed in relation to teaching language, are echoics, mands, tacts, and intraverbals. Within this course we will explain the functions of these operants and how they may be taught. Within this course we will also teach establishing operation and how they relate to teaching language. All readings will be complimented by a study of Skinner?s seminal book Verbal behavior.
