Students are a passive participant in behavioral learning—teachers are giving them the information as an element of stimulus-response. He wrote his famous book, “Language and Mind\" in 1972, in which he proposed his famous theories on language acquisition. When a child is acquiring a language, she or he imitates the sound or speech patterns produced by adults. (3) Arrange practice with feedback so that the new information is effectively and efficiently assimilated within the learner’s cognitive structure. Behavior theorists define learning as nothing more than the acquisition of new behavior based on environmental conditions. The teacher is passive because the students  do their personal discovery knowledge, The students understand the information or material  constructed by themselves. A.APPLYING CLASSICAL CONDITIONING IN THE CLASSROOM. (2003).Behaviorism.Available on Behavior theorists define learning simply as the acquisition of a new behavior or change in behavior.

Watson believed that if he could make a child fear a rat, then he could create any situation and response that he desired( Waltman, 2003). Reward is the positive feedback that is given to the learners because they can response to the stimuli correctly For example reward can be realized through stikers, treat , food  and shopping, While punishment  is the negative feedback that is given to the learners if they can’t response the stimuli well. The scientific study of mankind should be restricted as much as possible  to directly observable quantities.

Behaviorist theory is the habit formation theory of language teaching and learning, reminding us the learning of structural grammarà Language learning concerns us by “not problem-solving but the information and performance of habits” The response to stimuli can be reinforced  with positive and negative feedback to condition  the desired behaviors. Behaviorist Learning Theory and Instructional Strategies in Technology. Man is generally a shallow  and imprecise observer of both his own  and others’ behavior. (2) Arrange practice situations in which prompts are paired with the target stimuli that initially have no eliciting power but which will be expected to elicit the responses in the natural setting. Negative reinforcement shows by giving punishment to decrease response.

Blaise (2011, p. 112) states that the core feature of behaviorism is that “learning is conditioned by external events or factors.” Pritchard (2013, p. 7) states that behaviorism “is a theory of learning focusing on observable behaviors and discounting any mental activity. Language development is the result of habit-formation through conscious imitation. Tell the students which behavior is being punished. It means that the mouse can response to the stimuli well so, the  mouse can get reward in the  form of treat .Through his experiment he concluded that behavior could be changed by providing reinforcement based upon the response.

Available Mowrer, B.F. Skinner, andA.W. The theory is that learning begins when a cue or stimulus from the environment is presented and the learner reacts to the stimulus with some type of response. "Contracts, consequences, reinforcement, extinction, and behavior modification" are all examples of behaviorist applications used in the classroom. However, the child will receive rewards (positive stimuli) or punishments (negative stimuli) and this way the child's behavior will be gradually … These are formed correct and incorrect response, are rewarded or punished ( Hubbard Jones and Thornton Wheeler, 1983;326 as cited in Demirezen (1988:135)).

The dualistic portrayal of mankind which distinguishes between mental processes and observable behavior is scientifically unproductive.

Some things to remember when incorporating behaviorist principles into your teaching: • Write observable and measurable behavioral learning outcomes, • Specify the desired performances in advance (the learning outcomes serve this purpose) and verify learning with appropriate assessments, • Emphasize performance, and practice in an authentic context, • Use instructional strategies to shape desired skills, • Reinforce accomplishments with appropriate feedback.
