Banyard, Philip; Hulme, Julie A. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2015
In George Miller's famous address to the American Psychological Association in 1969 he explored the aims and future direction of psychology.

Newstead, Stephen E. – Psychology Teaching Review, 2015
Despite the widespread use of the term psychological literacy, it is argued in this paper that it lacks a clear definition and empirical support. The claim that all psychology students possess psychological literacy in the sense of knowing the main ideas and concepts is relatively uncontroversial. However, the claim that they also possess a wide…
