Curriculum Development in the Affective Domain.
Feldman, Beverly Neuer
This document presents an affective domain curriculum and reviews the behaviorist and humanist learning theories on which it is based. Recognizing the significance of the relationship between positive self concept and ability to learn, the affective curriculum was designed for the continuing development of self concept and interpersonal skills in the college classroom. The curriculum consists of eleven sequentially-paced components--such as "ice-breaking" activities, formation of intra-class groups, pairing of class members, and information exchanges--each involving a number of different activities. The curriculum is intended for incorporation in regular course curricula in any subject matter. Anticipated outcomes from employment of this curriculum include enhancement of student self concept and the fostering of more meaningful relationships between students and teachers. It is noted that affective domain development helps personalize the institution and humanize the classroom, and is of particular importance for the new population of students attracted to the community college by the open door policy.
