"Teachers at all levels of education are expected to foster productive thought, although this is not as effective as it might be when they ignore emotion and moods and their effect on learning. Combining the most up to date theory with practical advice, this key textbook delves into the question of the interaction of emotion, moods and thought, and its implications for learning, to show how you might manage that interaction to improve your own teaching. Building on a comprehensive framework of productivethought, Douglas P. Newton explores the interrelationships between each of its constituent elements - reasoning, understanding, critical thinking, creativity and wise decision making - and the emotions"--

Addresses a frequently ignored area in schools by challenging our understanding about the interaction of moods, emotions and cognition in the classroom It offers teachers invaluable practical advice on developing and sustaining productive thought in the classroom.

Are emotions good or bad for thinking and learning?
Have you ever wondered why a good lesson of one year falls flat in another?
Why do students behave the way they do?
Teachers are expected to foster productive thought yet the neglect of emotion in the classroom, in favour of intellect, means teaching and learning is often not as effective as it might be. "Thinking with Feeling "explores what we mean by productive thought, its interrelationship with mood and emotions, how teachers can manage that interaction to improve teaching and learning, and what teacher trainers could do about it.
Synthesising the most important international research in the field, it" "offers a framework for productive, purposeful thought - deduction, understanding, creative thinking, wise thinking, and critical thinking - and explains how mood and emotion can support and also impede learning. It considers the effect of the interplay of emotion and intellect on classroom behaviour, on students public performance and performance in tests, and how emotional labour can affect the teacher.
Illustrated with examples from practice, this challenging, thoughtful study offers education professionals a basis for understanding the interaction of emotions and cognition and making it a successful partnership in order to improve teaching and learning.
