TATE Volume 50, Number 1, ISSN 0742-051X Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
The number of articles on teachers and emotions has increased radically over the past decade in Teaching and Teacher Education (TATE). In a search for teachers and emotions published in TATE from 1985 to 2014, 70 articles were found. These articles were classified into seven main themes: 1) emotions in teacher identity and professional learning, 2) emotional exhaustion among teachers, 3) teachers, emotions and relationships, 4) teachers' emotions in historical, political and societal contexts and educational reforms, 5) teachers' impact on students' emotions, 6) teachers' emotional intelligence, skills and knowledge, and 7) teachers' emotions and regulation of emotions. Nine of the 70 articles that represent the main themes were selected for closer examination. This review analyses the diversity and significance of the research that TATE has published on teachers and emotions, describes the changes that have happened in the field and illustrates the trends and gaps, as well as future directions for research on the topic.
