This book is the second edition of
Introductory Psychology Teaching Primer:
A Guide for New Teachers of Psyc 101. It exceeds its predecessor by the inclusion
of updated student learning outcomes put forth in the APA Guidelines for the
Undergraduate Psychology Major Version 2.0, as well as new resources
designed to help students reach these objectives. This primer is designed to be a pragmatic aid
that will give instructors what they need to get started right away. Authors divide each chapter into sections
including: Coverage Suggestions, Learning Objectives, Activities and
Techniques, Possible Assessments, Relevant Articles from the Teaching of Psychology journal, Links to
TOPIX materials, and Chapter Connections.
Given the importance of the
introductory psychology class in American education (approximately 1.7 million
students take this class every year) it is prudent for the premier organization
for the teaching of psychology, the Society of the Teaching of Psychology (STP),
to provide guidelines for this course and prepare an explicit statement to aid
teachers of this course. STP’s Executive Committee charged the Early
Career Psychologists Committee to create a primer to aid those teaching
introductory psychology. This document
is the revised and updated version of the result of their labors.
