Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper describing an  informal learning experience you have had. You may describe, for  example, how you became afraid of heights, why a particular food or  smell moves you emotionally, or why you dislike elevators. The  experience must be concrete and can be singular or an experience that  occurred over a longer period.

Describe the experience by applying learning theories from this week’s readings to the steps involved. Include the following:

  • Identify what you learned from the experience.
  • Describe how your learning could have occurred through classical  conditioning. Identify the unconditioned stimulus, the unconditioned  response, the conditioned stimulus, and the conditioned response.
  • Explain how your learning could have occurred through operant  conditioning. Describe the behavior, consequence, and reinforcement.  Indicate the schedule of reinforcement, if applicable.
  • Address how your learning could have occurred through cognitive-social learning.
  • Conclude by comparing classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and cognitive-social learning.

Include at least two references from the University Library.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
