Seventh Southwest DI Conference to Include Effective Trainer Institute!
By popular demand, NIFDI is including the popular Institute Becoming an Effective DI Trainer in the 6th Southwest DI Conference lineup.
The institute provides advanced training for teachers, coaches and building coordinators who already have substantial DI experience and are ready to become trainers. Over the course of five days, participants are introduced to the main steps for developing a program training for teachers new to Direct Instruction: creating a training outline, designing materials for a training packet, identifying critical program formats and articulating the rationale for the program's design. Participants pre-select a program and level to train, develop an outline for training teachers in the program and then deliver a presentation to the other participants. Trainees spend approximately half their time with the course leaders and half their time in other sessions observing and assisting actual program training sessions at the institute.
The conference sessions are focused on the K-3rd grade levels of Reading Mastery Signature Edition Reading, K-2 grade levels of Reading Mastery Signature, DISTAR Arithmetic 1 as well as Corrective Reading Decoding.
