The Significance of Emotions in Teaching and Learning: On Making Emotional Significance
Pitt, Alice J.; Rose, Chloe Brushwood
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v10 n4 p327-337 Oct 2007
We follow the insights of psychoanalytic theory to offer a way of thinking about emotional life in the classroom. Using three case studies, each of which illuminates an aspect of emotional difficulty in relation to learning and failing to learn, we argue that educators and educational leaders benefit from attending to and listening for difficulties in making emotional significance, that is, in refusing to separate affective and cognitive processes, in encounters with knowledge and with others.
