Emotions Matter: Teachers' Feelings about Their Interactions with Teacher Trainers during Curriculum Reform
Yin, Hong-biao; Lee, John Chi-Kin
Chinese Education and Society, v44 n4 p82-97 Jul-Aug 2011
Compared with the rich exploration of teachers' emotional geographies in the West, there have been only a small number of studies conducted in Chinese societies that have adopted Hargreaves's emotional geographies to analyze human interactions in education. This study explores the nature of emotions felt by teachers during their interactions with teacher trainers during the period of national curriculum reform in mainland China. Three kinds of emotional geographies were evident: professional, political, and moral. The implications for teacher emotion research and teacher development are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
