The Feeling of Teaching is part of a larger project, Teaching through Emotions (TTE), developed by the author, Elizabeth Burris. The project is based on these premises: * that teaching and learning depend on relationships; * that teaching is fraught with emotion, often negative; * that working through emotions can help illuminate the nature of classroom relationships, which points to ways teachers can improve their teaching; and * that teachers need support in surviving and understanding the emotions and relationships that necessarily accompany teaching and learning. This book describes the TTE approach to teaching. Through stories from real-life classrooms, the book demonstrates how teachers can turn negative experiences into positive, lasting learning for their students. In the chapter on pushed buttons, teachers learn how to recognize even subtle instances of acting out and the ways students and others defend against anxiety. In the chapter on insults and compliments, teachers learn the value of not taking students personally so students can use them for cognitive and emotional development. In the chapter on crossed boundaries, teachers explore how they and their students sometimes move into each other's "circles" and wreak havoc, including indulging in the urge to take revenge. And in the chapter on power struggles, teachers consider student resistance and several ways to dissolve it. Throughout the book, readers are shown the power of emotion work: practicing self-awareness, describing, looking for good reasons, guessing, self-disclosing, listening, and planning. By doing emotion work, teachers can take full advantage of the emotional and relational data their students are constantly providing to shift their teaching and better attune with the learners in their classrooms. This book shows how such attunement can fundamentally transform teachers and students alike. The TTE approach welcomes emotions, even the most negative ones, and uses them to figure out better ways to relate to students and help them learn what teachers want them to learn. In addition, TTE is a way for teachers to get relief. By acknowledging feelings and working through them to crystal-clear understanding and self-change, TTE allows teachers to connect with students in sometimes shockingly effective and satisfying ways. It can turn misery into joy and amazement. That's what teaching should be about. And it's what this book makes possible.

In Feel, Matthew Elliott takes a critical look at what our culture and many churches have taught about controlling and ignoring our emotions. He contends that some of the great thinkers of the modern era got it all wrong, and that the Bible teaches that God intends for us to live in and through our emotions. Emotions are good things that God created us to feel. Matthew helps us to understand our emotions and equips us to nurture healthy feelings and reject destructive ones. -- publisher description

Power Politics and the Emotions

How can we rethink ideas of policy failure to consider its paradoxes and contradictions as a starting point for more hopeful democratic encounters? Offering a provocative and innovative theorisation of governance as relational politics, the central argument of Power, Politics and the Emotions is that there are sets of affective dynamics which complicate the already materially and symbolically contested terrain of policy-making. This relational politics is Shona Hunter’s starting point for a more hopeful, but realistic understanding of the limits and possibilities enacted through contemporary governing processes. Through this idea Hunter prioritises the everyday lived enactments of policy as a means to understand the state as a more differentiated and changeable entity than is often allowed for in current critiques of neoliberalism. But Hunter reminds us that focusing on lived realities demands a melancholic confrontation with pain, and the risks of social and physical death and violence lived through the contemporary neoliberal state. This is a state characterised by the ascendency of neoliberal whiteness; a state where no one is innocent and we are all responsible for the multiple intersecting exclusionary practices creating its unequal social orderings. The only way to struggle through the central paradox of governance to produce something different is to accept this troubling interdependence between resistance and reproduction and between hope and loss. Analysing the everyday processes of this relational politics through original empirical studies in health, social care and education the book develops an innovative interdisciplinary theoretical synthesis which engages with and extends work in political science, cultural theory, critical race and feminist analysis, critical psychoanalysis and post-material sociology.
