APA TOPSS Charles T. Blair-Broeker Excellence in Teaching Awards

Back in 1997, I met this quiet and humorous gentleman from Iowa named Charlie. He was one of the instructors at the Nebraska Wesleyan Psychology Teacher Institute. Little did I realize the impact he would have on my teaching career and the entire world of high school psychology. I now get to call him a friend.

Prior to October 2014, this award was named “APA TOPSS Excellence in Teaching Awards.” It is now called, the "APA TOPSS Charles T. Blair-Broeker Excellence in Teaching Award." You may not know Charlie, but you have likely been influenced by his approach to teaching, the activities he created or popularized, or may even use his textbook. In any case, there is this excellence in teaching award that is named after him.

There are a few items needed to apply, so get started now. No matter where you are in your career if you can get the materials together because you are an excellent psychology teacher, make the time and apply. This award is one of the high marks in anyone's teaching psychology career.

Make the time for this one--you won't regret it.
