Storyboard Text

  • Isabel's mom asked her daughter to complete her chores before she went out with friends.
  • Please clean up your room before you go out
  • Why can't I do it when I come back?
  • When Isabel refused to do so, her mom told her that she would use an unconditional stimulus that would cause a response that's automatic. So, she put money on the table.
  • When Isabel saw the money on the table, she had the unconditional response of taking the money, which is a response that occurred from her mom putting the money on the table. 
  • Once Isabel takes the money, the money acts as a conditioned stimulus that causes a response because Isabel learned to associate the money with completing her chores.
  • As time went on, Isabel's mom realized that her daughter would complete her chores before she went out with friends if she had an initiative. 
  • From then on, Isabel's mom was sure to put money on the table so her daughter would complete her chores before she went out with her friends. This was a conditional response because Isabel learned that the completed chores = money to go out with friends.
