Ch. 2: Conditioning Theories - Habit Formation and Change

Pg. 42-43 Table 2.2 Guthrie's methods for breaking habits.
I found this very interesting.  Breaking a habit with the fatigue method.  Knowing this would have been very helpful with that student that liked making and playing with those paper spinners during class.  Has anyone tried/used the fatigue method in their classroom to break a habit?

  1. Nila I thought this conditioning theory was very interesting. If you think about it, a child is asked to do something he really likes without really knowing that in the end the instructor will be successful in having that student break the habit. I'm not a teacher but I would like to try that with my son and see if it really does work.
