The Difficulty of Teacher Dispositions: Considering Professional Dispositions for Preservice English Teachers
Shoffner, Melanie; Sedberry, Tiffany; Alsup, Janet; Johnson, Tara Star
Teacher Educator, v49 n3 p175-192 2014
This article explores the place of teacher dispositions in English teacher preparation by contextualizing the issue of dispositions in English teacher preparation. This allows consideration for the importance of developing professional dispositions during English teacher preparation by recognizing that various stakeholders (teacher educators, university supervisors, mentor teachers, and preservice teachers) in teacher education often understand dispositions differently. The authors reflect and offer suggestions on how professional dispositions might be more effectively addressed in an English teacher education program through richer interactions among all stakeholders.
