Direct Instruction Training Series

Levels I, II, and III
Intensive Video Training and Practice
with Facilitator's Guide/Participant's Manual

Video series developed by Haddox and Silbert. Haddox presents information and demonstrations with classroom footage.
Each series may be used with teachers, assistants, tutors, supervisors, administrators and others who may have had no prior DI experience. They may also be used as a thorough review of DI teaching or training techniques for those with DI experience, including consultants and trainers. The first tapes in both the Level I and Level II series present intensive pre-service training on basic Direct Instruction teaching techniques and classroom management strategies used in READING MASTERY and the equivalent lessons in FAST CYCLE. The first tape of each series may be used separately as an orientation to DI for school personnel, parents and community members. On the other pre-service training tapes for levels I & II, rationale and critical techniques are presented, demonstrated, and participants are lead through and then practice techniques. Periodically throughout training, classroom teaching demonstrations with students are shown.

Each series continues with in-service training. The focus of each of the in-service training segments is on the new formats and techniques introduced during a specific lesson range. All training for level III is contained on one tape. Each series may be used as basis for local college credit course.
