One of the most critical roles in a successful Direct Instruction implementation is the peer coach. With good, careful peer coaching, teachers will become more skilled and proficient in teaching the program, and students will excel with improved instruction.
In an implementation that does not incorporate high-quality peer coaching, some teachers will become stars, but some may demonstrate little to no improvement, keeping the implementation as a whole from achieving a high level of success.
With effective peer coaching, staff development and strong leadership, teachers using Direct Instruction will improve dramatically, and students will progress farther and faster than they ever have before.
Join the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI) for a 2-day Direct Instruction (DI) Coaching Academy on the essentials of successful DI coaching. This session equips building and district-level instructional coaches, peer coaches, lead teachers and mentor teachers with critical coaching and support skills.
