PSY 423: Educational Psychology: Home


According to the American Psychological Association,

Teachers [and psychologists] "can apply a wealth of psychological research in their classrooms. Psychology's insights can help teachers manage behavior problems, motivate students, assist struggling learners, handle stress, support gifted and talented youth, and more. APA also supports the teaching of high school psychology".

This includes:

Classroom Behavior                   

Disruptions such as bullying and violence against teachers can make it difficult to teach effectively, but current research can provide solutions for schools to promote a positive atmosphere.

Curricular Materials                   

From kindergarten through high school, whether you’re a math, science, social studies or English teacher, these resources can help you apply research on teaching and learning; find exciting lessons and activities; and stimulate interest and increase achievement.

Diversity Issues                   

Findings from psychological science can support and advance issues of diversity and help create safe and supportive school environments for all students.

Gifted & Talented Education                   

Enhance the achievement and performance of children and adolescents with special gifts and talents, whether it's in psychology, music or basketball.

Math & Science Education                   

Psychological research sheds light on how brains process math and science, achievement gaps and how students learn, but psychology itself is also a scientific discipline.
