The main purpose of this study was to investigate the implementation of affective education by doing a case study in Taiwan, including teaching strategies and assessment. The participants in this study included the principal, the school administrator who had been in charge of curricula, and three teachers. The research setting was in a rural elementary school in Taiwan. The primary method of the data collection was interviews. The findings mainly were divided into three aspects: administration, teaching, and assessment. To implement affective education, teachers needed school administration and parents' support. Two types of courses were designed to teach affective education: in-class and out-of-class. Teachers employed alternative assessment as measurement tools.
