Recent Applications in Stimulus Equivalence-Based Instruction and Practice Tips (ARCHIVED)
Stimulus Equivalence-Based Instruction was first introduced and used by Murray Sidman (1971) to teach reading comprehension to a young man with microcephaly and intellectual disability. Since then, equivalence-based instruction has been applied to many teaching situations and contexts from teaching math (Fisher, 2005), geography (LeBlanc, Miguel, Cummings, Goldsmith, & Carr, 2003), statistics (Critchfield & Fineup, 2010), art history (Aguayo & Garcia, 2005), second languages (Ramirez & Rehfeldt, 2009), etc. This presentation will review a variety of recent application of equivalence-based instructions from the research literature, as well as offer new and innovative uses for this technology. In addition, tips will be suggested for using this technology in practice.
1. Participants will be able to define stimulus equivalence.
2. Participants will be able to list at least 3 recent applications of equivalence-based instruction from the literature.
3. Participants will be able to describe the steps and components of equivalence-based instruction.
