Reflective Practice That Nurtures Dispositions

This four-semester study examines the impact of reflective practice on
the self-analysis of dispositions in beginning pre-service teachers.
Pre-service teachers identified dispositional signals [behaviors], messages
those signals sent to students; and the results of the signals on student
engagement. They also set dispositional goals for their next teaching opportunity.
Results over the four semesters indicate an increasingly sophisticated
self-analysis of teacher dispositions both in dispositional categories and
depth of analysis.
