Abstract and Keywords
Teaching the history of psychology offers both challenges and opportunities for the psychology instructor. We present a variety of course development and pedagogical strategies by reviewing the literature on teaching the history of psychology that has developed since the late 1970s. Specifically, we 1) survey a variety of course aims and objectives; 2) address how to situate the history course within the psychology curriculum; 3) discuss approaches to teaching history (including how the course can help students develop a critical-analytic perspective on the discipline); and 4) highlight historiographic issues and debates. Finally, we survey a small selection of on-line resources that are particularly useful for teaching history.
