Abstract

During the past decade, direct instruction has been cited as one characteristic of effective schools. In response to increased accountability, many school districts and schools have incorporated the methods of direct instruction as a way to improve teaching performance and student achievement.

This study was designed to determine if the teachers who were identified as effective would naturally practice the elements of direct teaching to a greater extent than less effective teachers where neither the effective nor the less effective teachers had been trained in specific models of direct instruction.
