Direct Instruction

Direct Instruction (DI) is a research-based model for teaching that emphasizes well-developed, clearly designed lessons presented in small learning increments. The key beliefs of DI are that teachers are responsible for student learning and that curriculum design is a key factor in student achievement. DI is a highly structured method of instruction, which features a well-sequenced plan of instruction for reading and language. As DI is based on the mastery learning philosophy, students are grouped and advanced according to their individual abilities and progress.
