Summary:

Student-teachers were asked to rank their values. They then reviewed rankings from peers, which indicated that most student-teachers ranked “a sense of accomplishment” more highly than “mature love.” They were then told that good teachers tended to rank “mature love” more highly than “a sense of accomplishment” and discussed the interpretation of this finding. As compared to students in a control condition, who reflected on how education professors might rank values, those in the treatment condition showed a greater endorsement of “mature love” and were rated by supervisors on a standard scale as more effective teachers 12-13 weeks later.
