Spectrum of Teaching Styles

Spectrum of Teaching StylesGrade 6 physical education students have begun learning physical skills and activities using The Spectrum of Teaching Styles. The Spectrum of Teaching Styles is a conceptual framework which helps to describe and organize the process involved in teaching as well as serving as a repository for gathering results.

The Spectrum consists of a continuum of 11 styles, each of which emerges as decisions shift between teacher and learner. Each style has a specific name as well as a corresponding letter of the alphabet: namely the Command Style (A), the Practice style (B), the Reciprocal style (C the Inclusion style (E), the Guided Discovery style (F), the Convergent Discovery Style (G), the Divergent Production style (H), the Individual Program (I), the Learner initiated style (J), and the Self-Teaching style.
