This study explored if the orientations towards instructing-coaching inphysical activities PA and teaching physical education PE affect theperceived strengths in teaching PE at the primary level PSTPEs. Theorientations were considered as socializing factors into teaching PE. In thisstudy, the perceived strengths were divided into discipline- and pupil-focusedstrengths. Online questionnaire was used to collect the data from 386 firstyear pre-service primary teachers before their first PE course of formalteacher education, to expose the acculturative influences of the orientations.Cross tabulation and logistic regression were used to analyze therelationships. The main results suggested that pre-service primary teacherswith an instructing-coaching orientation perceived discipline-focused strengthssportiness and teaching skills as their assets in teaching PE contrasted bythe finding that those with teaching orientation and without instruction-coachingorientation more likely perceived the pupil-focused empathy as their mainasset. Even though, the associations were not strong, they exposed interestingdirections of effects of acculturative socialization into teaching in terms ofperceived strengths. This study adds to the existing research on teaching PEinformation of the acculturative formation of discipline- and pupil-focusedPSTPEs through instruction-coaching and teaching orientations. In order todevelop the effectiveness of formal teacher education, we suggest widening anddeepening the research of acculturative formation of the perceived strengthsand particularly their practical influences on formal teacher training andlater on their behavior while teaching PE.
