French Canadian Physical Education Teachers' Usage of Mosston Spectrum of Teaching Styles. (Pedagogy)

Article excerpt

Many theoretical models have been developed so far to identity teaching styles used by teachers (e.g. Grasha, 1994; Mosston, 1990; Trigwell & Prosser, 1996). The model developed and refined by Mosston (1966,1990, Mosston, & Ashworth, 1994) has been a popular feature in physical education (PE) teacher training in the United States and in other countries such as Canada, England (Mellor, 1992), and Finland (Telama, 1992). While many studies have been performed to determine which style leads to better learning, little is known about the usage of the various styles. The purpose of this presentation is to identity the extent with which French Canadian physical education teachers use the teaching styles, and to determine if demographic characteristics have an impact on styles used. This research is part of an international effort to identity teaching styles used by physical education teachers around the world. A questionnaire developed and validated by Kulinna, Cothran, and Zhu (2000) to identity physical education teachers' usage and perceptions of the 11 styles as described by Mosston and Ashworth (1994) was used. The questionnaire is comprised of 11 scenarios describing what a physical education teacher typically does when using the different styles. Each scenario contains a series of questions related to the use and perception of the style. Each questions is to be answered using a 5-level Likert scale (never to always; strongly agree to strongly disagree). …
