Summary

The staats motivated learning reading procedure is an application of an integrated-functional approach to learning in the area of reading. The method involves a system of extrinsic reinforcement which employs tokens backed up by a monetary reward. The student reports to the program administrator some item for which he would like to work, such as a phonograph record or a pair of shoes, and the item's exact price. When he has earned tokens which equal the amount necessary, he is given the money and allowed to buy the item. Procedures are explicit, simple to administer, and are applied on a 1-to-1 basis by nonprofessional personnel. The procedures are designed to progressively reduce the amount of reinforcement given per reading response as the training progresses. The method has proved applicable to students with severe behavior problems, to the emotionally disturbed, the educable mentally retarded, and to students from regular elementary and junior high classrooms identified as poor readers. Samples of the materials used and step-by-step lesson procedures are appended. (rh)
