Your teaching style incorporates your understanding of the different ways students learn, how you manage the classroom and how you view your students.
Are they empty vessels waiting to absorb the knowledge you impart? Or do the students play a more active role, engaging in the learning process through activities?
Describe your interaction with the students and how you engage with them. What type of teacher are you? Your style is unique to you. Giving an example of a lesson plan or activity, you do with your students to reveal more of who you are as a teacher.
Here are some words you could use to describe your teaching style:
Entry Level answer example
"Although I recently graduated with my teaching degree, I have put a lot of thought into the ways that I want my teaching style to be formed. I want to be the type of teacher that has a fun classroom environment where mistakes and questions are encouraged just as often as researched statements. We all learn best when we have wiggle room for error. I want to provide my students with securing and confidence inside, and outside, the classroom."
Experienced answer example
"My teaching style can best be described as interactive, supportive, and transparent. I encourage my students to have a voice in the classroom, ask questions when they come up, and participate actively in all conversations regardless of their level of confidence."
