Because research suggests that the key to substantial educational reform is the displacement of didactic strategies by a more personalized approach to teaching, the need for an affective emphasis in teaching is implicated. In Affective Teaching, Lynne Rompelman extends the research on the affective domain by incorporating students' and teachers' voices on the caring of teachers within an academic setting. Students emphasize that certain aspects of the affective domain are important to an environment in which they become fully engaged in learning. Teacher knowledge about the affective domain, alone, is not sufficient for effectiveness in the classroom. The book contends the actual employment of affective techniques is necessary to promote student involvement.
Lynne Rompelman is Psychology Instructor, Psychology Department Chair, and Social Science Division Chair, Concordia University-Mequon, Wisconsin.
