Goldman, Jeri J.
Published materials on the teaching of psychology and related behavioral sciences at the secondary level in the United States for the period from 1970 to 1981 are listed and described. Reference sources which were searched included: Psychological Abstracts, Education Index, Dissertation Abstracts International, Current Index to Journals in Education, and Resources in Education. Cited are guidelines, curricula modules, conference reports, newsletters, annotated bibliographies, position papers, educational research, curriculum guides, textbooks, course descriptions, and essays. The literature demonstrates that the period covered was a particularly decisive one in the long history of high school psychology, as it witnessed a resolution of the conflict over cognitive vs. affective curriculum concerns and marked the commitment of professional psychology to precollege psychology. During this time the American Psychological Association created its Clearinghouse on Precollege Psychology. Contributions by the Clearinghouse, including a description of its publications, are highlighted in the introduction. (RM)
