The Emotional Core

I first saw this image on Pinterest shared by ASCD and the image let me to this article
In this age of CCS, we've been talking less about social-emotional intelligence; however, this image describes Robert Plutchik's research focusing on 8 basic emotions which may be at the CORE (pun intended) of what we do as teachers, learners, and life-long decision makers in families and relationships. There are 10 suggestions in the article and some may surprise you, such a the one where they suggest you create classroom / family stories that become integral to decision making (what would Grandma do now?).

(The article says the figure is reprinted by permission of American Scientist, magazine of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society.  It was pinned by ASCD.  I hope it is OK to share.  It is something we need to put on our classroom walls!)
