Use Direct Instruction To Quickly Improve Reading Skills.
Din, Feng S.
A study investigated whether direct instruction, used as a main instruction strategy, with a concentrated curriculum, can help students quickly improve their basic reading skills. Subjects, 18 students (age 7 to 15 years) with reading problems, received individualized treatments for 3 weeks (or 12 hours). Pre-test, treatments, and posttest was the basic design. Results indicated that after the treatments, the students made significant gains in their basic reading skills, with an average Grade Equivalent gain of 1.5. The findings suggest that when used appropriately, direct instruction (in an integrated approach) can be both effective and efficient in helping students improve their basic reading skills.
