Following is a commentary on "de-personalizing" teaching. I am including it here because I think we need to view teaching through a lens that includes what we know about how humans learn - including Costa's work. Courtesy of ASCD SmartBrief.

How schools can prioritize students' socio-emotional learning
Cognitive learning should include human, social and emotional experiences because "they all go together," write Kathleen M. Cashin, a clinical professor at Fordham University's graduate school of education, and Bruce S. Cooper, a professor of education leadership at the school. In this commentary, they suggest going back to when school was interesting and challenging, rather than isolated and quantifiable, as well as ensuring online learning does not replace teacher and student interactions critical to social-emotional development.
