Defining moments: Developing culturally responsive dispositions and teaching practices in early childhood preservice teachers
The study reports on preservice teachers' perceptions of which memorable experiences contributed to shifts in their culturally responsive disposition and teaching practices. The preservice teachers were enrolled in a teacher preparation program, designed to prepare them for work with a diversity of children and their families. Findings suggest five types of experiences that were instrumental in the disposition shift. These included material resources, diverse internship experiences, interactions with diverse families, critical reflection, and discussion and dialogue.
