What our partners say…

We are often asked about visiting schools that use Direct Instruction (DI) and work with the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). Visitors are interested in seeing what DI is all about and how it looks in the classroom. While there are many schools implementing DI with NIFDI support, City Springs School in Baltimore, Maryland is a model impelmentation that welcomes visitors to their site. To learn more about City Springs, including how to schedule a visit, click here.

Implementing Direct Instruction Successfully

When implemented fully, Direct Instruction (DI) is unparalleled in its ability to improve student performance and enhance students’ self-esteem. In order to implement DI effectively, much more is required than simply purchasing instructional materials. The following two-part tutorial guides administrators, teachers and coaches through the key features of a successful DI implementation. Part I provides an overview of the steps schools need to take in preparation for a DI implementation before school starts while Part II provides an overview of the steps schools need to take after school has started.

IMPORTANT: This tutorial is an intensive video series comprised of 18 segments, each followed by a series of questions. Users should allow approximately three hours to watch the videos and complete the questions. NIFDI recognizes the high demand for time placed on school officials and, for this reason, has structured the tutorial so users may stop at anytime and later resume where they left off.

Have a slow connection? You can view the quiz portion (no videos) of the tutorial here. To get a copy of the videos on disk to use with this method, please contact us at 877.485.1973 or info@nifdi.org.
