A Structure for the Affective Domain in Relation to Science Education.
Klopfer, Leopold E.
A classification scheme for the affective domain in relation to science education is presented in this article to clarify student's affective behaviors and their representative phenomena. Discussion is made in connection with the content-objectives grid in the cognitive domain. An analogous grid for the affective domain is delineated by a two-dimensional presentation. Krathwohl's taxonomy of educational objectives is incorporated along the behavioral objective dimension, and the second dimension is composed of a set of phenomena. The phenomena are grouped into four divisions: events in the natural world, activities, science, and inquiry. Each division is further grouped into subdivisions with some divided into still smaller categories. Sample statements along with the applicable cells of the phenomena-behaviors grid are given as examples. Applications of the present structure to science teaching and educational research are provided. Included are five tables relating to organization of the scientific enterprise, interactions of science with society, scientists as people, processes of scientific inquiry, and nature of scientific inquiry.
