Emotional experiences at elementary school: Theoretical and pragmatic issues

Chapter


Abstract


  • The emotions, for a long time cast out of the scientific field, today represent a

    very productive and diversified field of research, and research on emotions in

    the school context is currently experiencing significant developments. The

    objective of this chapter is to present the main trends of emotion research

    in the school context. In the first part, we briefly present two significant concepts corresponding to two approaches to the study of affectivity, which can

    be considered either globally in terms of affects and moods, or in terms of

    emotions. In the second part, we will see how these concepts are studied in

    the school context. Lastly, we present a study on the emotional experience of

    elementary school children before introducing a discussion on the possible

    continuation of such research.
