Direct Instruction lessons are short 5-9 minute lessons, leveled for grades 3-5 and 6-12, that can be presented to a whole group (teacher-led) or assigned to individual students. Direct Instruction lessons introduce key skills and concepts of the Common Core State Standards, which can later be developed by students in Applied Reading & Writing lessons.
Direct Instruction Features Include
• Audio support
