The materials in this section are designed as supplements to the free online videos offered by NIFDI. Feel free to copy these materials for educational and instructional purposes, such as inservices or staff study groups.
The National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI) has developed video guides to accompany the training and support videos available on this website. These guides were initially developed to help viewers focus on critical aspects of the full immersion model of Direct Instruction (DI) presented in the videos.
Just as DI programs are field tested, these guides have also been designed and tested to ensure they target key aspects of implementation pertinent to successful DI implementations. They help guide conversations of faculty and schools contemplating implementation of the full immersion DI model. For schools or districts already implementing DI, it provides an opportunity for discussion among teachers and staff regarding critical issues associated with implementation and is perfect for a structured inservice.
