The Hurwitz Instructional Strategy Model (HISM) is applied to Mosston’s spectrum of styles. Each style is redefined as an instructional strategy, and appropriate objectives for each strategy are identified. The structures of the newly defined spectrum strategies are then described and analyzed. The analysis reveals that the styles as strategies can be grouped into three families of strategies: modeling, task, and inquiry. It is suggested that these families may be further expanded. The analysis also identifies a number of additional strategies hidden in the spectrum. It is concluded that the HISM is useful for analyzing instructional strategies and the analysis of the spectrum may enhance its usefulness.
