Program on the Teaching of Psychology in the Secondary School. Final Report.
American Psychological Association, Washington, DC.; Oberlin Coll., OH.
The present report is intended as a source book for teachers of psychology, particularly at the high school level. Prior to the decision to produce this book, it was recognized, by the participants in a five-week project at Oberlin in the summer of 1970, that psychology is presented to students in diverse ways at this level --in courses designated psychology, social studies, biology, contemporary problems, and mental hygiene. They decided that only those courses that in some way treat the classic areas of the discipline (methods, learning, perception, social psychology, etc.) should be called psychology. Accordingly, it was decided to develop this resource. Included are: 1) reviews of tests, readings books, and laboratory manuals; 2) descriptions of journals; 3) a catalogue of audiovisual materials; 4) a listing of source materials for the teacher; 5) a listing of suppliers of equipment and animals; 6) a listing of popular collateral books; 7) the addresses of national organizations from which materials for instruction can be obtained; 8) a sampling of some methodological successes used by the program members in their teaching; and, 9) some suggestions of ways to organize a first course in psychology.
