Social Learning Theory

The assumptions underlying social learning theory proposed by Albert Bandura are relevant to the impact of social learning on students age 8 with respect to behavior, dress, speech, and mannerisms. The primary assumption of social learning theory is that human behavior is primarily "learned observationally through modeling" (Van Wagner, 2009, p. 1). Social learning has a significant impact on students age 8 because they are impressionable and just learning how to behave based on larger social interactions such as in the classroom. Behavior is affected in a number of ways. Fictional characters in books, films, or other media can be used as symbols to model correct behavior for children.
