Shaping Diagram
Shaping is our sharpest tool for teaching new behavior by 1) reinforcing approximate responses that gradually lead to the final behavior (the goal or target behavior) and 2) extinguishing (withholding reinforcement) for those approximations that lead us father away from the goal. One of the keys to shaping without frustration is to keenly observe the natural variation with which responses are repeated. From that natural variation, we can often select with reinforcement the next closer approximation to the target behavior. Another key to shaping is to return to an earlier successful approximation if the animal and trainer get "stuck" (not advancing). For more details on shaping, read the article "Shaping New Behaviors".
