On Highschool

teacher-wars-coverA lot of great activity going on around teaching in high school.  Here are some key links:

  • APA’s Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools (TOPSS).
  • Excellence in Psychology Instruction Consortium (EPIC).
  • Teaching High School Psychology (Blog).
  • In 2017 APA will host its first Summit on High School Psychology (Web site soon).

Some great reads on K-12 Education:

  • The Teacher Wars: A history of America’s most embattled profession (Dana Goldstein, 2014). A great history of schools in America. How normal schools began. The demographics of the first teachers and many interesting facts. Eye opening.
  • The smartest kids in the world and how they got that way (Amanda Ripley, 2014). When you look at schools around the world, it provides some good comparisons to what we do here in America.
