This theory supports the belief that a learner’s behaviour
is shaped by feedback, positive and negative reinforcement (Light 2008).   Positive reinforcement increases the chances
of an event happening again and punishment decreases the chances of an event
happening again (Videbeck 2011).  
Students will learn/solve a problem by trying alternative options until
a correct solution or desirable outcome is achieved. To get this correct
solution or desirable outcome many errors are involved before correct behaviour
is learnt. Therefore, I got them to repeat the several passing techniques as my
first drill because by repeating the different types of passes they will eventually
an accurate or wanted outcome will be achieved.

Skinners theory of operant conditioning includes the correct
response to a situation or task being compensated (rewarded) This will be done
throughout my whole lesson. Positive reinforcement will be used by rewarding
the correct response with praise (using words like “well done” and “Good job”)
or a treat making this response more likely to be repeated in the same
situation in the future.  Punishment will
also be used when the action performed is not desirable meaning that this
action is less likely to be repeated in the future. For example, stopping
certain drills or making them start over. Research by McLeod (2008) suggests
that skinner placed a hungry rat inside a box. The rat was initially inactive
inside the box, but gradually as it began to explore around. Eventually, the
rat discovered a lever, upon pressing which; food was released inside the box.
After it filled its hunger, it started exploring the box again, and after a
while it pressed the lever for the second time as it grew hungry again and
every time it was hungry it would press the lever for food.

 Ivan Pavlov theory of
classical conditioning is used because it Involves placing a neutral signal
before a reflex, Focuses on involuntary, automatic behaviours.  In Pavlov’s experiment with dogs, the neutral
signal was the sound of a tone and the naturally occurring reflex was
salivating in response to food. By associating the neutral stimulus with the environmental
stimulus (presenting of food), the sound of the tone alone could produce the
salivation response (Coon, Mitterer, Talbot, and Vanchella 2010). An example of
this in my lesson pan would be as a Coach, I have them practice repeatedly so
the they will perform the learned behaviour naturally during a game

The advantages of Behavioural Approach theory are that It
doesn’t require a specialist to implement it- anyone can use the approach
because It is easy to put into practice. Due to the fact it’s a command style
of teaching. Decisions on what to do and how to do it are all determined by the
teacher (Shimon 2011). However, there are obvious disadvantages such as
repetition can be quite boring, Not always easy to get people to change their
mind, Punishment is often used more frequently than rewards (Suggests that we
rely on awards in order to perform)
