Editorial Reviews

Annette D. Digby
Affective Teacher Education makes a significant contribution to the field of teacher education by addressing directly and unapologetically the importance of the affective dimension of the educational process. While acknowledging multiple domains of teaching and learning and their potential impact upon student learning, the authors take an in-depth look at teacher dispositions and practical applications of affective education, both for teacher educators and for PK-12 teachers. The book balances theory with practice and is a must-have resource for teacher educators and anyone else dedicated to improving student achievement and outcomes.
April 2010 CHOICE
Provides exploration and encourages discourse while making connections to research, practice, and the importance of professionalism. . . . Recommended.
W Robert Houston
Recent research and practice in education has verified the importance of dispositions and affective feelings in student cognition. This book describes the myriad ways that these less tangible but vital domains impact student development and outcomes. For those who are committed to improved student achievement based on test outcomes, this book is particularly vital as it considers the practices and outcomes of other dimensions of education.
