Seven Major Foci of Affective Experiences: A Typology for Educational Design, Planning, Analysis, and Research.
Roberts, Thomas B.
Affective education attempts to educate the emotions. Many available works describing affective techniques offer little guidance to teachers who wish to design their own learning experiences or to administrators and researchers who want to understand and analyze what's going on in affective education. This taxonomy not only describes some objectives of learning experiences, but classifies affective education into seven major types and eight subtypes giving teachers, curriculum designers, and administrators a means of adding reason in their selection of affective experiences. When planning affective experiences teachers can cast affective methods within categories of personal awareness, creative behavior, interpersonal awareness, subject orientation, specific content (joining affective and cognitive), affective styles of teaching/learning, and teacher, administrator, and other educators (the focus here is on the educator as a growing person). A perfect technique would meet the criteria of all seven. Transfer values high in this typology which applies to educational situations but can be adapted to business situations and also to other fields. A short bibliography is included. (Author/SJM)
