AbstractIn a recent article in Educational Theory, as well as in his book The Real World of the Public Schools, Professor Harry S. Broudy distinguishes among three major styles of teaching. These are, first, the didactic, which has as its aim the transmission and reinforcement of knowledge and skill; second, the heuristic, which is intended to stimulate creativity in problem solving situations; and third, the philetic, which involves the teacher in relationships of loving concern in a community of learners.
