Like its predecessors, Volume III of the Handbook for Teaching
Introductory Psychology provides introductory psychology
instructors with teaching ideas and activities that can immediately
be put into practice in the classroom. It contains an organized
collection of articles from Teaching of Psychology (TOP), the
official journal of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology,
Division 2 of the American Psychological Association. Volume III
contains 89 articles from TOP that have not been included in other
volumes. Another distinction between this volume and its
predecessors is its emphasis on testing and assessment. The book is
divided into two sections. Section One, "Issues and Approaches in
Teaching Introductory Psychology," contains 52 articles on critical
issues, such as: how to approach the course; understanding
students' interests, perceptions, and motives; students' existing
knowledge of psychology (including their misconceptions); a
comparison of introductory textbooks and tips on how to evaluate
them; test questions and student factors affecting exam
performance; an overview of different forms of feedback; giving
extra credit; and how to deal with academic dishonesty. Section Two
consists of 37 articles that present demonstrations, class and
laboratory projects, and other techniques to enhance teaching and
learning in both the introductory, as well as advanced courses in
the discipline. This section is organized so as to parallel the
order of topics found in most introductory psychology textbooks.
Intended for academicians who teach the introductory psychology
course and/or oversee grad assistants who teach the course, all
royalties of the book go directly to the Society for the Teaching
of Psychology to promote its activities to further improve the
teaching of psychology.
