For purposes of writing your  scenario, your character is named Rad and you are the Instructor. The  scenario should be based on the following steps outlined in your book:

  1. Step One – Set Behavioral Goals. Describe the desired behavior you would like Rad to achieve. Note: Consider what have you observed about Rad related to the desired behavior.
  2. Step Two – Determine Appropriate Reinforcers. Define reinforcers,  and explain the reinforcers that you have selected for the desired  behavioral outcome for Rad. Include the primary reasons why the selected  reinforcers are appropriate for Rad, you (the Instructor), and the  environment.
  3. Step Three – Select Procedures for Changing Behavior. Describe the  procedures that you implemented to achieve the desired behavior in Rad,  and specify the main reasons why you chose these procedures.
  4. Step Four – Implement Procedures and Record Results. Discuss the  implementation of the procedures that you chose in Step 3, and create  fictional results. Explain the method(s) that you used to observe the  results.
  5. Step Five – Evaluate and Revise. Discuss the method(s) that you used  to evaluate the effectiveness of your desired behavioral change in Rad,  and determine the major revisions you may consider to your program in  the future.

  1. Typed, double spaced, Times New Roman font (size 12), one inch margins on all sides, APA format.
  2. Use headers for each of the subjects being covered, followed by your response.
