Editorial Reviews

Carol Walker
A timely book! One that not only discusses dispositions but directs the professional educator to reflect and develop sustainable attitudes for student and instructional success. I especially enjoyed the sections on dispositions as mediators and the in-depth description of reflective practices.
Marci Greene
This book is an excellent resource for higher education faculty to use in addressing the complex issues surrounding dispositions and dispositional behaviors. A specific strength of this book is the use of cases and vignettes to guide individual reflection or to use as a teaching tool to generate thought- provoking conversations.
