This study explored how preservice teachers demonstrate evidence of cultural competence in the work sample. Using the Teacher Work Sample (TWS), a plan for instruction serving as a teacher performance assessment, the research examines the document for evidence of cultural competence. Twenty TWSs ultimately fell into four distinct categories designated as static, reactive, active, and proactive. The author concludes that this study found heavy evidence of recognition and response within the reactive, active, and proactive TWSs; however, teacher educators must take care to use multiple ways to measure the cultural competence of preservice teachers, and we need more research in this area.
