This resource guide is for elementary and secondary level educators who are interested in affective education and in formulating their own strategies for more meaningful learning experiences in their classrooms. The guide is based on the idea that affective learning is essential and that the best learning experiences are those in which the affective element is planned. The guide begins with a learning model showing the necessity of personal awareness and a positive self-image. An inventory allows the teacher to evaluate himself in terms of affective qualities, and a bibliography of nine books about the teacher's role is provided. A large section of the guide contains over 35 suggested classroom procedures for improving the affective climate, and approximately 40 classroom activities with stated objectives. These involve values clarification, development of creative thinking skills, and acceptance of others' opinions. A model for professional development planning suggests and describes over 50 activities including in-service evaluation. Twenty instruments for assessing affect are reproduced with permission to copy from the guide. They include student self-report inventories, teacher and administrator inventories, and general instruments for students, parents, and teachers. An annotated bibliography is included of 66 books about in-service training, method and techniques, and theories of affective learning. (AV)
