High School Psychology: Bibliography, Newsletters, Facts and Figures.
Stahl, Robert J.; Hronek, Pamela
This document contains (1) a bibliography of precollege psychology textbooks; (2) a newsletter and historical correspondence of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Special Interest Group (SIG) of Psychology Educators; and (3) the tabular results of a comparative study of high school psychology teachers certified in social studies, in guidance counseling, and in all other areas. The bibliography cites textbooks which are intended for use in high school level psychology courses. Provided for each title is complete bibliographic information and the contact person in the respective publishing company. The second part of the document contains a sample of the NCSS/SIG of Psychology Educators Newsletter and some correspondence of that group. Included also is a membership participation survey, the preliminary results of a questionnaire survey regarding the status of pre-college sociology, and descriptions of the various 1980 NCSS sessions dealing with psychology. The third part of the document briefly describes the results and methodology of a comparative study and contains all the tabular results. The data analysis revealed that psychology as a separate course of study for credit was taught in 331 of the 554 Illinois secondary schools responding to the questionnaire. One of the major goals of the study was to determine if the certification areas of the teachers would translate into different approaches to the courses. The study shows that all of the teachers used the same teaching methods. (Author/RM)
