Cover, Copy, and Compare: Increasing Geography Accuracy in Students With Behavior Disorders
Christopher H. Skinner, Phillip J. Belfiore, Nancy Pierce
A multiple baseline across items design was used to evaluate the effects of a cover, copy, and compare (CCC) intervention on students’ accuracy in identifying states on a map of the United States. Seven students were trained to locate states on a map with the states labeled, turn over that map, place a marker on the appropriate state on an unlabeled map, and check their responses. Students were trained to repeat the procedure until they placed the marker on the appropriate state before proceeding to the next item. The results showed the CCC intervention was effective in increasing the class mean accuracy levels in locating states. Students rated the procedure as highly acceptable and the teacher was able to implement efficiently the class wide procedure in a self contained classroom for elementary students with behavior disorders.
