The Journey of Direct Instruction
8 July | 12:15 pm - 1:00 pm
The rising success and popularity of Direct Instruction can only be appreciated by understanding the journey of two social justice warriors. The approach was co-developed by Siegfried Engelmann and Douglas Canine, and they fought to provide a cohesive curriculum to the most disadvantaged children they worked with. This session will go through the history of Direct Instruction’s development, its field testing, the challenges faced by Engelmann and Carnine and the moments of success.
