Affective Education: State of the Field and Source Guide
Beginning in the late 1960s and continuing into the first part of this decade authors, including John Holt, Nat Hentoff,James Herndon, Jonathan Kozol, Herbert Kohl, William Glasser,and Charles Silberman, have written to the point that classroom atmospheres are repressive and schools are dehumanizing. In total, the message is that the educational process does not promote meaningful and personalized learning. In large part, failure in the affective domain (feelings, values, attitudes) has been identified as a major contributing factor to this distressing situation.
