Introduction

Adam Teaching styles A teacher will use many different styles when teaching a performer. The style of teaching a teacher uses depends on the circumstances, for example, the pupil's age, ability the complexity of the skill to be taught and the surrounding environment e.g. gym, sports field or mountains. More complex skills in dangerous environments (like navigating in the mountains) need a more controlled style of teaching than simple skills in safe environments like throwing a ball in a gym). I am going to compare 3 sports (throwing, tennis and football) and 3 different teaching styles (Command, reciprocal and guided discovery) and how useful each one is in the 3 sports.

It relies on pupil already knowing the basic skills and when to use them, so if they don't know when to use them, this method can't help them to learn new ways of completing the activity. Pupils are generally older and therefore more responsible which allows this method to work The style of teaching the teacher should use will always be different for different sized and ability groups. A larger majority of students will have a better chance of succeeding when using different teaching styles because different students learn differently and also, students will succeed more if they were given longer time periods to learn. However during a school PE lesson there is not always time for everybody to learn all the skills they are taught, and so varying the styles of teaching over the weeks to help everyone to learn the different skills is the best way to get the good results. ...read more.
