As we near the end of the calendar year (but not the school year), let's take a look back at the top posts of 2017. In no particular order, here are the posts with the most page hits:

13 Reasons Why--remember when this was a huge issue? Teen suicide and its prevention still is, but I posted a couple of blogs examining the show and added some commentary.

Blended Learning Posts

Oh, and we surpassed three million views of our posts. Kinda cool if you ask me. :)

PsychSessions: Podcast

Back in October, the first of nine episodes of the PsychSessions podcast came out. At the time, I was coaching and had no time to listen. I was able to listen to two of the episodes this week and am impressed. Perhaps I am biased because I know the people interviewing and being interviewed, but I found the discussions with Randy Ernst and Elizabeth Yost Hammer engaging, entertaining, and educational. The interviews are informal and examine educational and psychological topics as well as delve into the personal experiences of the interviewees. For me, those are the most fascinating parts--they share stories about the histories of organizations they've been a huge part of and their own lives.

Psychsessions has a website for the podcast here.
Link for Apple Podcast

From the website:
This podcast, co-hosted by Garth Neufeld and Eric Landrum, is about the teaching of psychology. We leverage our connections with top psychology educators as well as up-and-coming superstars to have deep conversations about what it means to be a teacher of psychology. Of course we veer away from the teaching conversation from time to time to hear about origin stories and the personal perspectives of our guests.

Quizlet and MATOP Resources

This information has been published before but is worth repeating. The teachers from the Milwaukee Area Teachers of Psychology have produced some amazing resources that we all can access.

Go to this link at Quizlet. It has links to several sets of vocabulary for numerous textbooks--use one or more that applies to you. Quizlet as a tool is quite flexible and helpful for students who use it for studying. Create your own study sets, copy the MATOP sets to your account in order to share with your students. Your students will be very thankful.

Create your own account.

Be sure to find your own text at the link. Copy the sets to your own accounts. This way you can create your own classes for your students to use. My students find these resources to be incredibly valuable.
