Beyond fiction: Reading for content – John Fenwick school

fiction Reading for content – John Fenwick school, Beyond
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of Direct Instruction (DI) programs on the academic achievement of elementary students. Reading Mastery (RM) was initially implemented in grade one and later extended through grade three. DISTAR Language was also implemented as a K-2 program. The Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) was administered to measure student achievement. Results from the SAT indicate that students who began instruction with DI in grade one made larger gains in reading achievement in grades 1-3 than students who began instruction with DI in grade two.
