A Guide to Teaching Introductory Psychology focuses on the critical aspects of teaching introductory psychology to undergraduate students. The volume begins with an orienting history of the course and evaluates current trends in teaching, as well as offering suggestions for developing personal techniques. Sandra Goss Lucas addresses a number of relevant issues, including how to teach difficult topics; linking course content to everyday experience; developing and using class presentations, lectures, and active learning ideas; and increasing interest in course topics.
