This study addressed the relationship between teaching style and student performance and motivation. Secondary health occupations education students identified their perceptions of the teachers’ (a) personal manners/personality, (b) clarity in relating material, (c) student recognition, (d) instructional methods, and (e) problem solving activities. Inasmuch as previous research suggests a positive relationship between teaching style and student performance, the results of this study can help teachers become more effective with students. Information was obtained that teachers can use to develop individual programs of improvement that will increase student performance and level of motivation.
