Blog posts – Direct Instruction

  • A series of blogposts from @E=mc2andallthat about Engelmann and Direct Instruction   “I recently read Siegfried Engelmann’s and Douglas Carnine’s book Could John Stuart Mill Have Saved Our Schools? which can be thought of as an introduction to the philosophical underpinning of Direct Instruction….this blog will attempt to engage critically with his ideas and arguments.”
  • When I first read about Direct Instruction, my initial reaction was that it sounded too simple and too prescriptive to be any good. However, my passion for evidence based education led me to explore what the research says… [and]…try Direct Instruction myself… Since then most of my concerns have been allayed, and I can’t argue with the results it achieves. The Myths & Facts About Direct Instruction
