When Affect Informs Instruction.
Wood, Karen D.; Jones, Jeanneine P.
Childhood Education, v73 n5 p292-96 1997
Discusses instructional strategies that address five affective needs of middle school students: freedom of choice, appropriate peer interactions, instructional diversity, personal expression, and broadened perspectives. Suggests that when incorporated into existing curriculum and laced with relevant application, these strategies can lead to a tighter match between the developing adolescent's affective needs and teachers' instructional obligations.
