UTOPSS Fall Conference: September 13, 2013

The 15th annual Utah-Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools (UTOPSS) Fall Conference will be held Friday, September 13, 2013 at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.  The goal of the Conference is to improve the teaching of scientific psychology at the high school level.  High school teachers receive activities that they can implement in their classrooms, resources, and the opportunity to network with others.  Presentations by university faculty give teachers insight on topics that may not always be covered in their textbooks. We have a fabulous day planned! 

Dr. Elizabeth Yost-Hammer (Xavier University of Louisiana):  I think (about thinking), therefore I am: Fostering metacognition in Introductory Psychology

Dr. Elliott Hammer (Xavier University of Louisiana): Beating the lag: What we have learned since your textbook was published

Dr. Lesa Ellis (Westminster College, UT):  Adolescent Brain Development: New Explanations for Old Observations

Lisa Jensen (Herriman High School, UT) and Lisa Olsen (Davis High School, UT):  My “go to” activities!

David Rockwood (Payson High School, UT):  Teaching Sports Psychology

Dr. Elizabeth Yost-Hammer (Xavier University of Louisiana) and Kristin Whitlock (Viewmont High School, UT) What’s New in AP Psychology?
