Monitor on Psychology
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".
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.
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.
Findings from psychological science can support and advance issues of diversity and help create safe and supportive school environments for all students.
Enhance the achievement and performance of children and adolescents with special gifts and talents, whether it's in psychology, music or basketball.
