Direct Instruction Teaching Curricula





$ Reading Success

Direct Instruction Response To Intervention (RTI) program authored by Bob Dixon, that provides more explicit instruction to teach reading comprehension skills such as the author’s purpose, inferring character traits, choosing the main idea, and related skills to those who have progressed through Reading Mastery but still have residual comprehension issue that delay expected yearly progress.


For more fundamental comprehension issues such remembering information, drawing conclusions, choosing relevant details, identifying contradictions, and finding misleading claims, Corrective Reading Comprehension may be a more suitable program.

Our comment: The manual, while informative and useful in the whole, was originally written in the '70's and is dated in the occasional use of aversive contingencies. Current best practice emphasizes positive programming through positive reinforcement. This caveat does not discount the overall value of this manual in considerations of how to teach basic skills to severe learners.
