D.R. Krathwohl, B.S. Bloom, B.B Masia 1964 David McKay Company, Inc
This landmark book lays the foundation for the role of the affective domain in education. The affective domain is the realm which emphasizes a feeling tone, an emotion, or a degree of acceptance or rejection. The book presents a detailed classification scheme for the affective domain, describes each level in the taxonomy and offers methods for assessment. There are also examples of student achievement at each step in the affective domain hierarchy, and a section that relates learning in the affective domain to learning in the cognitive domain.
