A Feeling for the Environment: Emotion Talk in/for the Pedagogy of Public Environmental Education
Reis, Giuliano; Roth, Wolff-Michael
Journal of Environmental Education, v41 n2 p71-87 2010
Emotions are important aspects in/for the pedagogy of environmental education (EE). However, the literature on the relationship between emotions and EE has not explored how emotion talk furnishes teaching identity claims and mediates instruction in/about the environment. Therefore, the present study draws on two ethnographic case studies to investigate the rhetorical and situational use of emotion discursive categories in interviews and authentic EE learning situations. Our findings suggest that rather than just being an outcome of effective instructional models designed to instill an environmental consciousness in students, emotion discourses are means to help account for and concretely realize the pedagogy of EE.
