Teaching Psychology outlines the major problems and issues
confronting psychology teachers. It presents an overview of the "nuts
and bolts" of teaching psychology including dealing with troubled and
troubling students, choosing and using technology, developing
evaluation instruments, and selecting methods for self-evaluation.
Written by two award-winning psychology professors with over 50 years
of combined teaching experience, the book offers a wide range of
down-to-earth suggestions and immediately usable materials intended to
help psychology teachers teach better and help students learn more.
chapters are organized to roughly parallel the sequence of tasks that
new psychology teachers face, beginning with goal setting and ending
with evaluation of one's teaching. Each chapter is chockfull of helpful
tools including checklists, sample lecture notes, writing assignments,
and grading criteria. To make it easier to customize this material,
these tools are available on an accompanying CD along with a rating
sheet for choosing a textbook, a student grade-record sheet, a sample
statement on academic integrity and a pool of less-than-perfect test
items to hone item-writing skills.
