Mosston (1994) created the Spectrum of Teaching Styles to identify the various alternatives that exist to design as well as present instructional episodes. As there are most likely as many ways to define the styles of teaching as there are learners, Mosston's original seven teaching styles have evolved into eleven. As identified by Mosston, each of the styles is differentiated by the decisions that are made by teacher or learner. The sequence of decisions that are made by either the teacher of learner during each of the three specified phases of instruction, before (pre-impact), during (impact) or after (post-impact) helps to create a different learning environment that can be categorized as a teaching style that fits into one of the eleven identified by Mosston's spectrum of teaching style.
