Spirituality: An Affective Facet for Curriculum Consideration.
Dickmann, Leonore W.
Affect Tree, v5 n1 p8-9 Oct 1980
The current age has been characterized as an Age of Materialism in which personal goals are material aims and pleasures. The need for getting back to a spiritual culture is considered foundational. It is the duty of educators to provide for the spiritual or affective domain of a learner's development. To neglect this aspect of a person's being is to miss fostering completeness in a learner and in the curriculum. The following characteristics could be competency-based objectives for a spiritual curriculum: a sense of humor, flexibility, joyousness, resourcefulness, responsiveness, patience, and resilience. This paper concludes with a list of 30 ways to explore spirituality and enhance the affective domain. (DC)
