Applying Psychological Science to Practical Instructional Problems

apapo-03282012-classroomThese modules were created by the members of a Task Force on the Applications of Psychological Science to Teaching and Learning. Their goal was to use research from the psychological and educational sciences and show how it can be applied to practical instructional problems and needs. They selected topics for these materials based on the Teacher Needs Survey that was conducted from 2004–06 with over 2,400 teachers giving feedback about their greatest professional development requirements.


Based on those outcomes, these 10 teaching modules were created to reflect the array of challenges teachers may face in the classroom.
