The Feeling Words Curriculum: The Missing Link.
Maurer, Marvin
The Feeling Words Curriculum, a curriculum that integrates the cognitive and affective domains in one course of study, is described in this paper. The opening sections explain how "feeling words," key vocabulary terms, are used to provide the missing link from one person's life to another's. Stressing the importance of helping students to develop humanistically and emotionally as well as intellectually, the next sections explain how to infuse this curriculum into a seventh through twelfth grade social studies format, giving examples of how the curriculum has already worked with sixth grade students. Procedures for introducing the vocabulary words and projects for reinforcing them are given next. The paper then mentions the functions of the right hemisphere of the brain and gives exercises dependent on right hemispheric processees. A few additional assignments close the paper. (JL)
