Since 2007, the APA Committee of Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools (TOPSS) has invited all divisions to develop PowerPoint demonstrations for high school psychology teachers.  We would like to remind all divisions of this invitation.  Once created, these demonstrations could be accessed and used by high school teachers in their classrooms for instructional purposes. Enrollment in high school psychology courses is growing; Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and regular psychology courses are all popular high school courses.  Created demonstrations should be about 8-12 slides in length. 
A template is available online; the template covers slides on History, Main Topics, Main Theories, Current Issues, Careers, and Resources.   

Templates can be submitted directly to Emily Leary.
