The affective domain the role of emotions attitudes and motivation in teaching and learning

Emotion and Cognition are inextricably linked and perhaps never entirely separate, distinctive nor pure. ~William James

The separation of the head from the heart has contributed to a fractured education system that produces minds that do not know how to feel and hearts that do not know how to think. ~Parker Palmer


The affective domain the role of emotions attitudes and motivation in teaching and learning

I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess tremendous power to make a student’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a student humanized or de-humanized.

~HaimGinott
