Section I focuses on fundamental principles and theories and the interplay among emotion, cognition, motivation, and the regulation of emotion. Section II examines emotions and emotion regulation in classroom settings. Section III highlights research on contextual factors (classroom, family, cultural), the content domains (mathematics, science, and reading/writing) as well as teacher emotions. The final section examines the various methodological approaches to studying emotions in educational settings.
