Affective Education: Its Implications for Teaching a Communication Arts Course in the College English Program.
Anderson, Sada Mae
This study reviews, analyzes, and summarizes the scientific research and professional literature pertaining to affective education (education concerned with the emotional needs of the learners) in order to determine its implications for a communication arts course in the English program. A review of the literature indicated that when the basic human needs are unmet, the development of the higher needs, creative and intellectual, is suppressed. A synthesis was arrived at which provides guidelines for teachers in the cultivation of affective dimensions in education. Ten needed research issues were listed. A review of programs and theoretical positions indicated that the state of the art was in its initial stages and that research on affective education had been based on subjective, personal observations, rather than on highly controlled experimental statistical studies. Considerable consensus was attached to the idea of a interactive approach to education which combined individuals developing their cognition along with their affective lives. (Author/JM)
