An important aspect of correcting errors is to identify “the part” of the exercise that a task belongs to. If a teacher can identify “the part” quickly, she can make a seamless error correction. If a teacher has difficulty identifying “the part”, the error correction can confuse students and lead to a loss of student’s attention. Dissecting an exercise in a DI lesson to locate the parts can sometimes feel like a daunting task. This video in-service provides information and practice on how to identify the parts.

The 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.
