When we teach learners to discriminate triangle, circle, and square, we are teaching the concepts of triangle, circle, and square. To do this well, we must identify and present examples of the concept that illustrate both the critical and variable features. We will cover how to analyse stimuli on the basis of critical and variable attributes, and the sequence of stimuli presentation.
