Bloom's Taxonomy of Knowledge: Affective Domain

Teaching with the Affective Domain in Mind : Video

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education (STEM)


Affective Domain: 

The affective domain relates to aspects of emotions, motivation, group dynamics, values, and characterization of knowledge.  It could also pertain to the classroom atmosphere and whether or not it is conducive to learning or whether it is "cold" and hostile to many students' learning.   For example, within the context of university education, particularly within science and mathematics education, "curving" tests, often against the benefit of students, in order to produce a "normal distribution" of test scores often creates an overly-competitive learning environment unconducive to cooperative modes of learning.    Consider the following examples:

     A regressive curving system within a university science classroom.

     A language learner intimidated by speaking with members of the native language speaking group.

     A shy grade school student.
