Issue Date: 
Wright, S. C. (1999).The use of critical thinking in physical education: A matter of style. In S. P. Loo (Ed.), Proceeds of the MERA-ERA Joint conference 1999: Educational Challenges in the New Millennium (pp. 437-441). Malacca, Malaysia.
This paper will focus on the role of teaching styles in determining the amount of
critical thinking that students are required to engage in within physical education classes. The
foundation of this paper is Muska Mosston’s spectrum of teaching styles, which suggests that a
teacher have 11 teaching styles to choose from when conducting lessons. These styles can be
further broken down into two clusters: one that contains styles that illicit production (discovery
or creativity); while the other contains styles that foster reproduction or replication. Discussion
will focus on styles that empower students to utilize critical thinking skills to complete tasks
given to them by the teacher.
This paper was published in the 1999 Proceedings of the MERA-ERA Joint Conference held at Malacca, Malaysia from 1-3 December 1999
