A Convention for High School Psychology Students.
Cameron, Samuel M.
Conventions offer high school psychology students an opportunity to meet psychology students from other schools, present projects developed in class, and have those projects evaluated by students and teachers from other schools. If the convention is held on a college campus, as was the one described in this paper, the college also gains by familiarizing high school students with its campus. A successful convention requires the involvement of teachers in planning, determining policy, evaluating projects, and acting as session chairs. Necessary planning includes setting a date, sending out a call for papers, helping students develop appropriate projects, setting up the program, publicizing the convention, designing certificates, and coordinating the convention with the college where it is held.
