Intended for curriculum designers, educational planners, teachers, and others who have responsibility in creating school programs, this book focuses on affective education, a domain of education in which feelings and attitudes come into play. The book provides guidelines for developing a practical, affective program that will gain the cooperation, support, and enthusiasm of teachers. Chapter 1 presents problems and difficulties of society that affective education can remedy, and presents a justification for affective development education. Chapter 2 defines affective development education in a down-to-earth manner that makes academic sense. Chapter 3 deals briefly with the current status of affective development education and describes its current state in the schools. Chapter 4 looks at the future of affective development education. Chapter 5 deals with curriculum design for affective development education in the schools. Chapters 6 and 7 present instructional methodology and discuss evaluation and assessment procedures in affective development education. Chapter 8 deals with the implications of affective development education for teacher education. Chapter 9 presents problems of implementation, and chapter 10 presents examples of a device found useful by instructors in a number of countries--an affective development education handbook for teachers. Two appendices are included that describe the current situation in affective education by country and offer examples of affective education lessons. (TJQ)
