ABA665-01Q Verbal Behavior (with Cormac Alastair Macmanus)

This is a 3-credit graduate level course designed to review the literature relevant to the understanding of verbal behavior. By the end of this course students will demonstrate the basis for a functional analysis of human language. This will include establishing a familiarity with elementary verbal operants, the ways in which verbal behavior is established, the relevance of the behavior of the listener, and ways that verbal behavior becomes organized. Students will establish vocal verbal behavior with regard to the topics addressed. Students will define and distinguish among the elementary verbal operants. Students will design a lesson plan and a research idea related to one verbal operant.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this summer. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
