Overview

While the history of psychology as a discipline is well documented, relatively little attention has been paid to the history of pedagogy in the field. Teaching Psychology in America: A History addresses this unmet need by providing an organized chronology and placing the teaching of psychology in a social and intellectual context.

A rich source of archival details and historical analyses, the 22 chapters present a comprehensive range of topics related to the art and science of teaching psychology, comparing the few standard courses taught 100 years ago with the proliferation of specialties and subfields today; examining the shifts in curriculum recommendations over time; analyzing the changes in textbooks, handbooks, and teaching-related journal articles; discussing the role of national and regional conferences and organizations in supporting psychology students and faculty; and reviewing the part played by outstanding teachers who have made distinctive contributions to psychology during the past century.
