7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A. Luria-smith on September 1, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful introduction to Direct Instruction - one of the most effective methods of teaching ever created. I used Direct Instruction in a 6th grade classroom where half of the students couldn't read 3 and 4 letter words. By the end of the year, my students were reading like 5th graders, 120 words a minute.

This book gives a teacher or parent the tools to apply Direct Instruction to many different forms of learning. It talks about how to use the idea of Direct Instruction and apply it in many different forms.

The only problem for parents, is after you read the book and want to buy some of the programs . . . most of them are only available to credentialed teachers. (...)
Overall this is a great book for people who want an overview of Direct Instruction and I would highly recommend it to educators, principals and parents who want to understand the theory behind DI.

If you ever needed any answers to any questions you've ever had about Direct Instruction this is the book to pick up. It provides detailed descriptions of many different curricula in all areas of teaching and how to use them effectively. It is essential for all teachers of children to own and know this book. The value of this book is second only to that of your teaching certification.

Kind of a dry book but that's text books. Got an A in the class and this book has lots of good quotes for supporting data.
