To successfully shape behavior, one must:
A. Begin by reinforcing a crude approximation to the target response.
B. After a time, put that crude approximation on Extinction (i.e., do not reinforce the crude approximation again).
C. An Extinction Burst will set in, which will lead to a greater frequency and magnitude fo behavior, as well as variability in the behavior.
D. As a result of the variability seen wiht the extinction burst, a closer approximation to the target behavior may be performed.
E. Reinforce this closer approximation
F. Repeat steps A-E until the target response is emitteed perfectly.
