The article examines the influence of affective factors on classroom learning. Different patterns of intellect, motivation, personality and environment may result in productive thinking. Some of the factors affecting teacher-learning processes include learner characteristics, teacher characteristics, learner and teacher behaviors, group characteristics and physical characteristics of the behavioral setting. Affective factors are those which referring to personal-social-emotional behaviors of teachers and learners. Various curriculum reforms projects are based on a cognitive approach. It has been observed that students react positively to teacher behavior characterized as warm and nurturant. Warmth of teachers was also found to be significantly related to student vocabulary and arithmetic achievement.
