PowerPoint Presentation: Theories of Deviance InstructionsOverview
Societal members dictate deviant behaviors. In this assignment, you will create a PowerPoint Presentation covering the different theories of deviant behavior. Consider how the theories impact definitions and perceptions of normal and abnormal behaviors.Outcomes
- Identify different definitions of deviance (A, C)
- Differentiate the positivist theories of deviance (B)
- Compare and contrast the different positivist theories (B)
- Apply the positivist theories to deviant behavior (B)
- Differentiate the constructionist theories of deviance (B)
- Compare and contrast the different constructionist theories (B)
- Apply the constructionist theories to deviant behavior (B)
Create an 8-10-slide presentation about the theories of deviance. Include the following in your presentation:
- Explain the major approaches to deviance: Positivist Theories of deviance include the Anomie-strain Theory, Social Learning Theory and Control Theory.
- Constructionist Theories of deviance focus on the Labeling Theory, Phenomenological Theory or Conflict Theory.
- Describe two specific examples of deviant behaviors that fit for each theory.
- Detailed speaker notes that represent what would be said if giving the presentation in person. Place speaker notes in the “notes” second under each slide.
- A title page, reference page, and citations.
- At least three scholarly sources.1. Explain why it is important to provide students with specific verbal and written praise. Why is specific praise more effective than non-specific, general praise?2. Describe how each of the following strategies can influence the behavior of students in the classroom: choice-making, contingent instructions, and criterion-specific rewards. Provide specific examples.
3. Why is it important to operationally define a target behavior before conducting a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)? Provide an example of an operationally defined target behavior and describe how that target behavior will guide data collection.
4. Identify basic types of data collection procedures and describe the importance of data collection as it relates to Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) in classrooms.
