If you are a tenured school administrator, Successful and Confident Students with Direct Instruction reinforces the need for teaching to mastery – if you are a newly minted principal, it introduces the critical features for establishing a mastery learning environment in your school.” – Keith Hollenbeck, Ph.D., Director of Administrator Licensure, University of Oregon “DI is a program many may need to see to believe. I never thought I would be a supporter of a scripted program, but having seen the incredible results first hand, I am now a believer...When implemented with fidelity, as described by Professor Engelmann, teachers really are able to forever change the trajectory of their students’ lives.” – Mandy Bailey, Building Coordinator, Union Colony Elementary School in Greeley, CO “This latest impressive work by Zig Engelmann is, among other things, a gift to thoughtful, no-nonsense educators everywhere. Successful and Confident Students provides us with over 40 years of wisdom, insight, sound practice, and true genius collectively applied to educating all students in a brief, easy to read, and professionally inspiring book.” – Laura Doherty, President and CEO, Baltimore Curriculum Project 6 NIFDI Press • nifdi.org
The Science and Success of Engelmann’s Direct Instruction Edited by Jean Stockard For almost a half-century, Siegfried Engelmann has shown how all children can learn if they are taught effectively. The Direct Instruction (DI) curricular programs he developed reflect the most effective and thoroughly field tested instructional materials in the world. They build on sound theoretical understandings of how effective instruction and learning occur, they involve painstaking attention to each detailed step of the instructional process, and they have been validated with rigorous tests of their efficacy. Engelmann’s work has transformed the instructional experience of thousands of students and has led to noted improvements in school behavioral climates and instructional practices. The Science and Success of Engelmann’s Direct Instruction is a tribute to the legacy and genius of Siegfried Engelmann and his decades of work in developing the Direct Instruction curricular programs. The authors of the chapters in this book represent several generations and multiple disciplines, bringing a variety of perspectives to their analyses of Engelmann’s career and impact. Part I of the book documents the extensive research embodied in the development of DI programs, the research that confirms their effectiveness, and the rejection of the work by the education establishment. Part II examines the legacy of his work, including the guidance it gives for transforming schools into effective learning centers for all children and the ways in which it has influenced the tradition of behavioral management in schools. The book ends with a look to the future, the potential for wider acceptance of Engelmann’s contributions, and the hope for truly solving the problems of achievement in America’s schools. This in-depth survey of DI’s history and impact belongs in the collection of all educational researchers, college libraries, and interested administrators and teachers.

Engelmann’s Direct Instruction: Selected Writings from the Past Half Century Edited by Timothy W. Wood Since the mid-1960s, Siegfried Engelmann has shown how all children can learn if they receive appropriate and effective instruction. The Direct Instruction (DI) programs he developed have transformed the lives of countless students. However, in addition to developing these highly effective programs, Engelmann has written extensively about learning and education, providing extraordinary insight into the theoretical and philosophical basis of DI as well as the world of education as a whole. This book brings together, for the first time, a selection of these articles, illustrating the wide variety of topics Engelmann has explored over the last half century and his unique insights into problems within the world of education. Four key themes of Engelmann’s work are highlighted: 1. His theoretical understandings of learning and instruction, 2. The development of the highly effective Direct Instruction curricular material, 3. The need for political reform and change in the organization and orientation of education, 4. Responses to critics and political roadblocks to the development of effective instruction. Appendices provide a complete list of Engelmann’s writings and programs, and an analysis of the development of themes within his work.

Could John Stuart Mill Have Saved Our Schools? By Siegfried Engelmann and Douglas Carnine In Could John Stuart Mill Have Saved Our Schools, Engelmann and Carnine show how the writings of this 19th century philosopher parallel many of their theoretical analyses of effective instruction. Mill applied his System of Logic to understanding science. Engelmann and Carnine show how it can apply to instruction better than to science, and how well Mill’s logic aligns with the principles underlying Direct Instruction. They also show the importance of combining the logical analysis of learning used by Mill with empirical data that confirm what students learn. With many examples and interesting historical asides, this book postulates an instructional methodology that could have been ours a century ago had Mill seen education as a science and not an art. More importantly, it shows that if today’s educators adopted instruction that is consistent with Mill’s methods, education could still become a science resulting in dramatic improvement in our schools.

Theory of Instruction By Siegfried Engelmann and Douglas Carnine In the book Theory of Instruction: Principles and Applications, Siegfried Engelmann and co-author Douglas Carnine describe the theory underlying the development of Direct Instruction curricula. Engelmann and Carnine detail the scientific and logical basis of their theory. They also provide a multitude of in-depth descriptions and guidelines for applying this theory to a wide range of curricula. This book will help the reader understand why the Direct Instruction programs authored by Engelmann and his colleagues have proven uniquely effective with students from all social and economic backgrounds, and how the guidelines based on the theory can be applied to a wide range of instructional challenges– from designing curricula for disadvantaged preschoolers to teaching algebraic concepts to older students.

Rubric for Identifying Authentic DI Programs By Siegfried Engelmann and Geoff Colvin Rubric for Identifying Authentic Direct Instruction Programs is coauthored by the creator of Direct Instruction, Siegfried Engelmann, and educational consultant Geoff Colvin. It articulates and illustrates most of the major principles followed in the development of Direct Instruction programs. This book helps users look at curricular material and judge whether it is true Direct Instruction or some form of imitation that does not adhere to the full set of axioms that characterize true DI. It shows the level of detail associated with what students are told, how they are tested, what kind of practice is provided, and how the material is reviewed and expanded from one lesson to the next. The book shows why each of these elements is a crucial part of authentic DI programs. List Price $15.00 Copyright 2006 109 pages Paperback

Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons
Research on DI: 25 Years Beyond DISTAR
By Siegfried Engelmann, Phyllis Haddox and Elaine Bruner
By Gary L. Adams and Siegfried Engelmann
Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons is a complete, step-by-step program that shows parents how to teach their children to read. Originally published in 1983, it has been a best seller ever since, used by parents to teach preschoolers to read before they start school or to help early elementary students who are struggling with their schools’ reading instruction.
This monograph, originally published in 1995 and now considered a classic in the field, summarizes the research on the efficacy of Direct Instruction programs from the original DISTAR formulations through the mid-1990s. Chapters written by Engelmann describe the essential elements of DI and why it is so effective. Adams presents an extensive meta-analysis of the efficacy literature on reading, language, and math. Special attention is given to the results from the large Follow Through project. Appendices contain a list of Direct Instruction programs and full citations to the articles reviewed. This well researched and fully documented book should be in the collection of all education researchers.
The program is based on the highly successful DISTAR reading program, the precursor to today’s Reading Mastery, and has been carefully adapted for parents to use at home. The book presents a complete, simple and clear program. Lessons are designed to take 20 minutes a day. By the end of 100 days of instruction, children are able to read comfortably at a second grade level and have the foundational skills needed to become good readers and highly successful students.

Conceptual Learning By Siegfried Engelmann Siegfried Engelmann knows how to teach things to children and believes that doing so is a most urgent and important undertaking. Engelmann knows, as does every parent, that there are many times in children’s lives when the things they need to learn should be taught directly and efficiently. Children might eventually discover for themselves, on an incidental learning basis, the rules for crossing streets safely. But we realize that this matter is too critical to be left to children’s own learning style and time. It might come too late or, perhaps, never. Engelmann believes that learning to think, reason, solve problems, and use language effectively is also highly urgent and that it is the business of teachers to efficiently and effectively manipulate the environment so that children are taught these things. This monograph is Engelmann’s answer to how a master teacher derives effective teaching procedures. This book simplifies and highlights some of the main steps involved in a teacher’s determination of how to teach.

Preventing Failure in the Primary Grades By Siegfried Engelmann Preventing Failure in the Primary Grades by Siegfried Engelmann, was originally printed in 1969 and was later republished in 1997. The book is divided into two parts. The first part begins with the rationale behind the development of Direct Instruction (DI) curricula, and is followed by chapters on teaching techniques and behavior management. Teachers working with any student population will find these chapters to be a useful resource. The remainder of the book contains in-depth descriptions on how to teach foundational language, reading and math skills. The descriptions are useful for planning instruction for beginning and primary-grade learners and for older students who have not mastered foundational skills. Teachers using Direct Instruction programs will find Preventing Failure in the Primary Grades useful and interesting as they learn the rationale underlying the instructional programs they are using. Teachers who are not using DI programs will learn how to develop specific teaching sequences used to teach foundational skills. List Price: $24.95 Copyright 1997 359 pages Paperback ISBN 1880183617
Teaching Needy Kids in our Backward System By Siegfried Engelmann Teaching Needy Kids in Our Backward System documents the fascinating experiences of a man some consider the most important educator ever, Siegfried (Zig) Engelmann. Through a tapestry of vignettes that start in the 1960s and continue through 2006, Professor Engelmann describes the battles he has fought to provide effective instruction for at-risk students, particularly children of poverty. The book combines personal memoir, descriptions of the scientific basis of Direct Instruction, and an insider’s analysis of the political and social tensions related to education in the United States. Engelmann describes the beginnings of his work, telling how he extended the principles of Direct Instruction to a wide variety of students and subjects. Several chapters discuss Project Follow Through, the largest educational experiment ever attempted. Although the evidence showed that DI was more effective than any other program, the results were hidden from both the public and the scientific community, and Engelmann tells in enticing detail how this happened. In a witty, humorous, and touching style, this book provides an unmatched insider’s analysis of the history and politics of education and one man’s efforts to make it better.

War Against the Schools’ Academic Child Abuse By Siegfried Engelmann Educational fads come and go in the United States, yet countless numbers of children do not succeed in school. The costs to these children, their families, their communities, and the country are enormous. In this book, Engelmann examines the root of the problem. With painstaking detail, he shows how the fault lies with the educational system and all of its players: educational publishers, boards of education, teacher training institutions, school administrators, and funding agencies. Professor Siegfried Engelmann has, indeed, declared war upon educational practices that literally constitute child abuse. In this penetrating examination of our public schools, Professor Engelmann vividly explains how irresponsible practices have contributed to the paralysis of our school systems and injury to countless school children for decades. In an age demanding intellectual proficiency, the cost to those children–and our nation–is incalculable. List Price $17.95 Copyright 1992 215 pages Paperback ISBN 0894202871

COACHING SERIES A Direct Instruction implementation is a systemic change in the way teachers instruct students. Teachers need to learn a new set of teaching behaviors that involve presenting from a script, pacing a lesson appropriately, correcting students, teaching students to mastery, reinforcing them, and accelerating their learning. Professional development and support is a vital component of a successful Direct Instruction implementation. The coach is key to effective staff development. Coaches share responsibility for students being successful by helping teachers develop a classroom environment where all students are learning. The National Institute for Direct Instruction’s Coaching Series provides a well-developed coaching model that achieves the following goals: • Focuses on the student • Trains teachers to achieve student mastery • Monitors student mastery • Makes the rate and quality of mastery visible • Provides schedules and procedures to enable all qualified teachers to achieve mastery • Celebrates student academic achievement LEVEL A: Designed for initial training of new coaches with a focus on developing skills in analyzing student performance through written records. The Level A manual focuses on teaching coaches how to ensure that basic structural elements are in place in the school and to monitor student performance by reviewing written records. Coaches develop skills in identifying problems based on a review of lesson progress data, student mastery data, and independent work scores. Coaches also learn how to work with teachers to solve problems and follow up after solutions are implemented. As part of the Level A manual, coaches learn the components of how to effectively lead a rehearsal session with a small group of teachers. Key aspects of the structural components of the implementation including materials, physical arrangements in the classroom, scheduling, grouping and placement are addressed.
LEVEL B: A continuation of coaching skills with an emphasis on analyzing student performance through direct observation and increasing delivery skills by planning and facilitating inservices. Level B expands the skills learned in Level A and develops the coaching skills needed to observe in classrooms and interact with teachers. Training sessions include classroom observations and possible demonstrations of effective teaching. Additionally, the manual provides information and structure for coaches to provide inservice sessions based on needs observed in the classroom. 2015–2016 Catalog 15
