Introduction to Yearbook on Emotions in Teaching and Teacher Education for Social Justice

by Amy Johnson Lachuk - 2019

In this chapter we provide an overview of our understandings of emotion, using Barrett’s work on the construction of emotion. We then link this framework to the discussion of three landmark texts in teacher education: Waller’s The Sociology of Teaching (1932), Jackson’s Life in Classrooms (1968), and Lortie’s Schoolteacher (1975). We examine these texts for what they bring to our understandings of emotions in teaching. While these landmark texts elide the emotions tied to teaching culturally and racially diverse learners, what excites us about them is how they work together to create composite sketches of classroom teachers at particular points in time. We identify an often unacknowledged emotional undercurrent to their work that fascinates us. We then discuss how this collection’s contributors take up this call to focus on emotion within their particular work in teacher education.
