"Direct Instruction: When the Tree Falls." On Behalf of Children.
Jalongo, Mary Renck
Early Childhood Education Journal, v26 n3 p139-41 Spr 1999
Examines the campaign to convince educators to use direct instruction programs such as DISTAR. Maintains that, although direct instruction is appropriate for low-level tasks and in desperate circumstances, direct instruction programs such as DISTAR deprofessionalize what early-childhood teachers do because it ignores their specialized training, and runs contrary to major theorists and historical foundations of early-childhood education.
