Abstract
As teacher educators, the authors developed an assignment focused on care ethics to prepare teacher candidates to design classroom-management procedures aimed at cultivating caring community. The teacher candidates revised traditional classroom-management processes, such as class rules, into cocreated norms. They also designed original management processes to explicitly teach their students to care. The findings point to the promise of care ethics to prepare teachers who can manage classrooms in ways that better meet the needs of diverse students.
