I learned about the Spectrum of Teaching Styles when I was a PE teacher and encountered it again later while working on my master’s and PhD degrees. I realized from the very beginning the potential that was enclosed in the Spectrum, and the more I explored it, the more I discovered its potential and usefulness in teaching any subject at school and beyond. Knowing the Spectrum is fascinating! Understanding the Spectrum is exciting! Now, after more than two and half decades of working, exploring,…

Muska & Sara’s Spectrum of Teaching Styles means a lot to me. In Taiwan, I received strict teacher training, but it was not until I entered the master's degree program that I came into contact with the Spectrum for the first time.

I have been practicing the Spectrum for the past 30 years, and I have continued to dialogue with emerging…

For 30-plus years, the Spectrum has served as my compass. I have introduced its framework and 11 landmark styles to dozens of pre-…

In 1969, I attended my first professional conference and heard Muska Mosston speak about the Spectrum. I was blown away and immediately hooked by the Spectrum’s universal and unifying theory that influenced every aspect of teaching. Muska and I spent 25 years together continuously researching the Spectrum. Refining of the Spectrum has been my passion, and the application has been my mission for the last 53 years. Knowing the Spectrum is freeing. It provides a structure that shows the relationship…
