Title:
Teaching the Heart with Heart
Topic:
Teaching the Heart with Heart Aristotle wrote, “Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.”
Summary:
Centuries of research tell us that effective learning and teaching take into account both the affective and cognitive domains. Aristotle wrote, “Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.” Effective teachers touch and engage the heart as well as the mind. How do we help students to feel something about what they are learning? How do we teach compassion, respect, integrity and other values? Come and learn practical teaching strategies that will build emotional intelligence and at the same time consolidate learning and motivate your students.
