Topic: The Affective Filter and Bloom’s Affective Domain – How They Work Together
Date: February 11, 2017
Time:   TBA       Duration: 45 Minutes
Location: Lone Star College – CyFair

Session Objective: 

This 45-minute session will help you to:

  1. Gain a deeper understanding of Krashen’s Affective Filters,
  2. Gain a deeper understanding of Bloom’s Affective Domain,
  3. Understand how Bloom’s Affective Domain course integration enables the ESOL students
    1. broadened and deepened cognitive development
    2. increased investment in the course material

Session Description:

Over the past 30 years, we have heard a lot about the Affective Filter and have linked this pedagogically to “make your classes fun and exciting,” “make your student’s happy,” and other positive psychology pop notions. However, much less research or interest has been given to Bloom’s Affective Domain, it’s connection to the cognitive, and psychomotor, and how these three domains function as a unit to engage and develop broader, deeper cognitive development in students, without regard to a student’s happiness.
