The Spark of Learning: Energizing the College Classroom with the Science of Emotion by Sarah Rose Cavanagh

In this fascinating book, Sarah Rose Cavanagh argues that we need to move away from the idea that the classroom is a place that should be devoid of emotion if we want to engage our students and ramp up their learning and motivation. Cognitive scientists now know that emotions are powerful tools for learning, and that we become more effective instructors if we consider how to harness that power in our teaching. Join us in reading and discussing this book and walk away with concrete ways to grow learning in your classroom by using the power of emotions.
