Survey of Precollege Psychology -- U.S.A. -- 1973.
Snellgrove, Louis
Results of a survey of precollege psychology conducted in 1973 are presented. The survey consisted of 1000 mailed questionnaires, 419 of which returned to be analyzed. Each of the 30 questionnaire items is stated and the results listed. Responses show that most schools which replied have over 1,000 students, that most teachers have taught psychology for four years part-time, and probably teach either history or sociology as well. Most psychology teachers have a Master's degree and teach psychology at the 11th and 12th grade levels. Textbooks and books of readings most commonly used are noted. The educational background of the teachers, specifically in psychology, is analyzed. Rankings of topics in psychology are given in their importance for both teachers and students. Techniques used in the classroom, ranking of importance of instructional objectives by teachers and students, and information on state certification of teachers in psychology conclude the survey report.
