Course Description

Course Description

The purpose of this intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the Frontiers in Psychology journal, is to investigate antecedents of teachers’ emotions in the classroom. The relationships between students’ motivation and discipline and teachers’ enjoyment and anger are addressed as well as how these relationships are mediated by teachers’ subjective appraisals.  Teachers’ emotions are examined though a study hypothesizing that classroom conditions are related to teachers’ emotional experiences and that appraisals can arbitrate the relationship between classroom conditions and teachers’ emotions.

Course Objectives

1. Summarize the components of Franzel’s theoretical model on the antecedents and effects of teachers’ emotions.

2. Discuss how teachers’ appraisals mediate the relationship between student behaviors and teacher emotions.

3. Identify study findings investigating relationships between students’ motivation and discipline and teachers’ enjoyment and anger.

4. Describe the central appraisals for teachers’ emotions, including goal conduciveness, goal importance, accountability, and coping potential.

5. Outline ways that classroom conditions predict teachers’ emotions.

6, Review study implications pertaining to optimizing teachers’ emotional experiences in class and thereby contributing to their overall health and well-being.
