Direct Instruction in the preschool

Weisberg, P.
Abstract:
This article describes the effects of implementing DISTAR Reading with low-income preschoolers. Children received 1-2 years of instruction with DISTAR Reading, with children who received two years of instruction demonstrating greater gains than children who only participated in one year of instruction. Additionally, children’s achievement was compared to same-aged peers in other preschools that were not implementing DI programs. Children who received Direct Instruction, for one or two years, made greater gains than children in non-DI programs. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI).
