2018 RMPA High School Teachers Workshop

Psychology has been a part of the high school curriculum on occasion since the 1840s and more regularly since the 1920s, when its focus was mental hygiene. Subsequently, there has been a steady shift to an emphasis on the scientific underpinnings of the field and a steady growth in the number of high school students who take a course in psychology.  High school psychology teachers deserve adequate preteaching and professional development opportunities to allow them to teach a science-based course that reflects contemporary perspectives and topics in the discipline. To provide an opportunity for professional development, RMPA is pleased to offer a full day workshop on teaching psychological science for high school teachers.
