  • English Language Learners and Direct Instruction

    A 5 page research paper. In the late 1960s and early 70s, S.E. Engelmann and his colleagues designed a comprehensive instructional model, Direct Instruction (DI), for Project Follow Through, a large experimental program funded by the federal government (Stein, Carmine and Dixon, 1998). DI integrates effective teaching practices with a sophisticated curriculum design that includes classroom organization and management, which is augmented by careful monitoring of student progress (Stein, Carmine and Dixon, 1998). This examination of DI, first of all, looks at what, precisely, constitutes DI practices and then investigates whether or not DI holds the potential to increase the academic achievement of English Language Learners (ELLs).
