First Four NIFDI Video In-services Available!

NIFDI video in-services are designed to support school leaders in charge of managing Direct Instruction (DI) implementations. Through the guidance of the videos, participants will view demonstrations and receive information by expert DI trainers. Participants will also practice the skills being taught and receive feedback from the facilitator, who will follow a facilitator's guide. In addition, these video in-services provide a model for district and building-level coaches, APIs (assistant principals of instruction) or building coordinators on how to sequence examples and focus on critical issues when training, as well as provide activities that promote mastery of the targeted skills.

We have received some great feedback and would like to hear from you. If you have used in-services, please let us know what you think of them by sending an email to training@nifdi.org

Special Edition 2018 Calendar Featuring Paintings by Zig Engelmann Available!

When asked about his paintings, Zig says, "I try and make them as realistic as possible. I want people to look at them and be able to feel like they are really there."
