Overview

The emotional features of teaching and learning, while crucial in everyday classroom practice, are all too often overlooked by theorists and educational researchers. Teaching, Learning, and Loving gathers together a group of prominent scholars whose work touches and explores, among other things, the connections between reason and emotion in teaching and learning. Daniel Liston, Jim Garrison, and their collaborators stress the importance of engaging in more conversations about the emotional investments of teaching, the hazards they can present to teachers and students, and the losses teachers experience daily in their classrooms. In the process, the authors of this provocative new collection reinvigorate the desire to create hope, meaning, and more effective teacher education.
