The main purpose of this study was to investigate teaching modalities of vocational high school teachers. A survey was administered to 174 vocational high school teachers from different vocational high schools in Ankara. The survey instrument consisting of 30 likert-type items was used. Cronbach-Alpha for the whole scale was found to be 0.93. In the data analysis, frequency, arithmetical mean, standard division, t-test, Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient method and factory analysis were performed. The results indicate that teachers mostly preferred the visual and individual teaching modalities. Furthermore, a statistically significant difference was determined at the 0.05 confidence level among teaching modalities in terms of teachers' gender, professionally seniority, socioeconomic condition of the schools they work and department. A significant relationship was determined at the 0.01 confidence level among all of the teaching modalities.
