Dana A. Gathers (Marist College, USA) and Christina Wright Fields (Marist College, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-4089-6.ch007
The purpose of this chapter is to contextualize cultural dispositions as an integral component in the development of teacher candidates' professional dispositions. Through a culturally relevant pedagogical (CRP) lens, the chapter defines cultural dispositions using the CRP tenets: academic success, cultural competence, and critical consciousness in the field of teacher education. The authors, two Black women teacher educators, argue that developing and supporting teacher candidates' cultural dispositions should be integrated into teacher education programs. The authors center the lived experiences as Black women educators to offer insight and perspectives on the value of developing teacher candidates' cultural dispositions. Other teacher educators can use the teacher cultural dispositions to inform their pedagogical and instructional practices.
