Teaching emotional intelligence: A foundation for better living
Dr. Sonia Anand and Edna Esther Kerketta
The success in academic performance of the students depends on their psychological well being. In order to perform his duty in an effective manner a student should be intelligent in emotion and satisfied as a student because a student is the hope for his society and nation. Student’s personality, behavior, interest, attitude and emotions affect their academic performance. So a student should understand his/her own emotions and other attributes in the teaching learning process. Goleman defined emotional intelligence as the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing well in ourselves and in our relationships. Using emotional intelligence in teaching means that you need to be able to recognize and respond to your own feelings of both you and those of the learners in the classroom in order to make you both more effective an your respective roles. Encourage an emotional state in the learners on your course, which is conducive to learning.
