Generic Affective Competencies: A Model for Teaching Socially and Emotionally Disturbed Adolescents.
Described in this report are a set of interrelated teaching competencies addressed towards affective-domain behaviors. These 41 competencies are intended for both special and regular classroom teachers, with special importance for teachers of socially and emotionally disturbed adolescents. The competencies relate to three major areas: (1) creating an affective climate (using accepting rather than rejecting language, involving students in creating limits and learning activities); (2) managing conflicts and crises in the classroom (accepting and recognizing feelings accurately, communicating confidence in the student's ability to learn and grow); and (3) using positive classroom management practices (depersonalizing roles, using humor to decontaminate stressful situations).
