Inventory on Teaching Styles: A Self-Profile for Self-Analysis. Practical Ideas for FL Teaching: Teachers' Interviews.
Language Association Bulletin, v29 n2 p9-17 Nov 78
An inventory of teaching styles and strategies developed by foreign language teachers is presented as a method to aid in self-analysis, the identification of teachers' beliefs on language teaching, and the discovery of the assumptions that teachers make on how students learn. Teaching styles are defined as habitual, consistent patterns of preferred strategies used by teachers in promoting learning. The inventory covers strategies used in teaching pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, reading, writing, culture and speaking. The frequency of teaching behaviors and strategies, based on a five-point scale, is assessed by the respondent. The inventory contains 13 items covering pronunciation, l6 items covering grammar, 13 items covering vocabulary, 21 items covering reading, 39 items covering speaking, 30 items covering writing, and 18 items covering culture.
