Direct Instruction

What is Direct Instruction (DI)? 

DI Key Features

Key features of DI are:

  • Highly engaging & interactive lessons (students participate on average 10 times each minute)

  • All concepts are taught to mastery. Students don’t move on to new material without having mastered underlying content.

  • Very efficient instructional model that allows teachers to teach more material in less time.

DI has been around 5 decades and there is more research available on this approach than any other teaching philosophy.
