DIRECT INSTRUCTION STINKS – from Rory D

 

Here's a link through to a very classic criticism of Direct Instruction in the classroom: http://corinnelopez777.wordpress.com/2013/01/08/why-i-hate-direct-instruction/comment-page-1/#comment-129

As the criticism outlines well, Direct Instruction (DI) is very, very difficult to implement successfully. When blended with Brainsarefun Study Skills 5-5-5's, it can be a barn burner. The place to begin is by always gaining student/child cooperation before undertaking instruction. You will save a lot of breath and frustration.

I think the goal is to become a master teacher.
