Affective Teacher Education is one of the first books to provide teacher educators, classroom teachers, school administrators, and teacher candidates with research and recommendations related to affective education. All teachers want to become professional educators; they want find satisfaction and reward in their chosen careers. Likewise, all teachers want to show their students in all grade levels and in all subject areas how to acquire, apply, and appreciate appropriate dispositions or outlooks related to the course content and as a community of learners. This book guides and supports teachers to fulfill these two goals. Each chapter explores a different aspect of affective education and offers the reader useful suggestions to prompt self-assessment, professional conversations, and developmental activities. Affective Teacher Education helps teachers to visualize teaching and learning holistically, linking the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that students need to know, do, and feel, to achieve in school and become lifelong learners.
