Since it makes noise and tells the story, he thought it would keep her attention for a long time. He then realizes that he forgot to turn on the “on” switch. As soon as he does so, the book begins to sing and Cassie’s interest is returned to the book. Cassie’s increased interest in the book is known as recovery. She begins to play with the book again because her interest in it has been rediscovered. Referring back to the alarm clock scenario and the scenarios with Alayna, Billy, and Cassie, we can see that classical conditioning, operant conditioning and habituation/recovery happen all of the time without our realization. It is important to know and study these forms of learning because children learn this way, and teachers need to know how to instruct using these methods.
