Teaching Styles in Physical Education
The teaching styles we present here have been slightly modified from Mosston and Ashworth’s work. The main difference is that we promote the inclusion concept for each of the teaching styles rather than treat inclusion as a separate style. Using an inclusive approach allows all students to experience success, tackle challenges, and improve self-efficacy. Choosing a teaching style is based on your experience and ability, what the lesson is trying to accomplish, and the needs of your students. Both you and your students will enjoy having the variety.
