pdf Early Exposure to Direct Instruction and Subsequent Juvenile Delinquency: A Prospective Examination Popular

Children eligible for special education were randomly assigned to the Direct Instruction program, DISTAR, or the cognitively-based program, Mediated Learning, in preschool. Program graduates were then followed into adolescence and questionnaires were given to students. Information was gathered regarding behaviors including: fighting, stealing, weapon use, arson, running away from home, and drug use. Results indicate that groups were shown to not be significantly different in level of reported delinquency. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI).

pdf The Effects of Repeated Readings on Student Performance in the Corrective Reading Program Popular

This study examined the effects of adding a repeated reading intervention on oral reading fluency measures for three middle school students in Corrective Reading Level B2. Students practiced the program checkout three times prior to testing. All students made gains from baseline to the repeated reading intervention; however, no generalization to unpracticed passages was documented.
