What’s Your Teaching Style?
The Authority | Lecture-Style Teaching
You enjoy presenting a topic to your students while they take notes. This is a great style of teaching in large group settings but can be challenging for engagement and individualization. Your style is ideal for older students as younger students may become bored with the lack of participation.
The Demonstrator | Coaching-Style Teaching
You prefer to demonstrate concepts to students through multimedia presentations, technology, and experiments. Combining lectures with visuals, your teaching style may lend itself well to arts and sciences. This style can sometimes stifle student and teacher engagement, so be sure to find ways to include your students in your process.
The Facilitator | Activity-Style Teaching
You love to encourage independent thought and self-learning through hands-on activities. You like to ask questions instead of giving answers. This style encourages student growth but can be hard to pull off in large classroom settings or with topics that rely heavily on memorizing facts, such as history.
The Delegator | Group-Style Teaching
You prefer to observe your students as they learn through group activities. This is an excellent style of teaching for lab-based learning and allows for a lot of peer interaction. Be sure to maintain your position of authority in the classroom, though, especially when working with younger students.
