Do They Have the Right Dispositions? Teacher Education in the New Conceptual Age
Karges-Bone, Linda; Griffin, Marie
SRATE Journal, v18 n2 p27-33 Sum 2009
In 1992 the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) coined the term "Dispositions"; the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE, 2002) defined dispositions making dispositions a part of every teacher accreditation process. Since that time educators have struggled over the inevitable challenges of identifying, infusing, and investing dispositions in teacher education programs. Dispositions have become a critical ingredient in the production of new teachers and administrators. With the dawn of the new "Conceptual Age," dispositions are in the center of any discussion of teacher education. This paper examines the topic of teacher education dispositions, both in defining and implementing the concept and process. The Charleston Southern University School of Education's continuing process through the dispositions milieu is addressed.
