Teaching psychology in secondary schools by Richard A Kasschau( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The document examines the teaching of psychology at levels below college. Its purpose is to establish a separate identity for high school psychology teachers by tracing the growth and documenting the breadth of present-day psychology at the secondary school level. The focus is on distinguishing between the needs of the college professor and the high school psychology teacher. Discussion is limited primarily to high school psychology courses, where most curriculum development efforts and enrollment increases have occurred. A few efforts at the elementary and junior high school levels are also mentioned. A brief history of the field and documentation of the rapid growth in recent years are reviewed. Next, some of the philosophical issues behind the teaching of psychology below college are considered. The main issue of contention is whether personal development or substantive knowledge of psychology as a discipline should be the primary goal. The last two sections are devoted to the primary areas in which the philosophical issues have had an impact: instructional approaches and teacher training. (Author/KSM)
No small part : a history of regional organizations in American psychology( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychology's evolution, from its consolidation as an independent science in the early 1900s to the rapid post-World War II expansion and proliferation of specialties, can be traced through the histories of regional associations in the US. This book brings together for the first time the histories of these organizations, presenting and analyzing a wealth of previously unavailable archival information. /// With a focus on the educational goals that these organizations promote for both newcomers to psychology and seasoned professionals, information on the founding, bylaws, meetings, programs, and membership comes alive in the context of trends and transformations in American psychology. These histories not only chart past progress but provide a unique perspective for understanding the issues that unify and divide psychology today.
