									AP Psychology                                                                  Unit 8: Learning
Project #1
Name:                                                                    Date:

You must create your own classical conditioning scenario. You may choose anything to
condition as long as it illustrates the key points of classical conditioning. You must include:
1. the unconditioned response (UR)
2. the unconditioned stimulus (US)
3. the conditioned response (CR)
4. and the conditioned stimulus (CS)
You should also include a diagram (stick figures are fine) with captions illustrating your
experiment.

Then, IN DETAIL, you must explain exactly how you would condition your subject. What
will you do step-by-step to ensure conditioning?

Then, consider the following questions. Be as specific as possible!:
   - What would happen if generalization happened?
   - What would happen if extinction occurred?
   - What would happen if spontaneous recovery then occurred?

This project is worth a total of 40 points and is due on Tuesday, March 2, 2010 at the
beginning of class. Any projects turned in after this time are considered late and will lose
points accordingly.

PROJECT CHECKLIST:
  4 parts of conditioning (UR, US, CR, CS) = 10 points
  Illustration with captions of the 4 parts above = 10 points
  Detailed description of your experiment = 10 points
  Thorough answers to questions on generalization,
   extinction, and spontaneous recovery = 10 points
