Effective teaching in physical education has growing interest due to its direct relation with the student learning. The purposes of this study were a) to examine classroom management behaviours, time management strategies, and teaching style preferences of in-service and prospective physical education teachers and b) to compare in-service and prospective teachers' competencies on these teaching effectiveness categories. Thirty in-service and twenty-four prospective physical education teachers participated in this study. Video recordings of physical education teachers were obtained during the lessons. Classroom management behaviours were analysed by using Physical Education Classroom Management Analysis Form, time management strategies were analysed by the Time Management Analysis Form, and teaching style preferences were analysed by mMosston Spectrum of Teaching Style Checklist. Results indicated significant difference in selection criteria for grouping students, arrangement and picking up equipment, preferred group size category, and preferred classroom formation patterns in terms of classroom management behaviour subcategories between in- service and prospective teachers (p<. 05). Significant difference was not found in use of instructional area and application of summary part between groups (p>. 05). Use of time for instruction, management, and warm-up in terms of time management subcategories differed significantly between the in-service and prospective teachers (p<. 05). Use of time for beginning the class, ending the class, activity, and game did not differ significantly between the two groups (p>. 05). No significant differences were found in preferred teaching styles between in-service and prospective teachers (p>. 05). These results indicated that, there is a need for the development of classroom management and time management skills as well as usage of various teaching styles of both in-service and prospective physical education teachers in order to make their instruction more effective.
