When mentoring our pre-service and in-service teachers we need to describe and model both research-based and clinically tested best practices. This is one of many lessons we will be sharing on teaching Judaic content, lesson planning, models of teaching, differentiated and individualized instruction and learning activities designed to transform the classroom into a Jewish community of cooperative learners. The title of this lesson is “What is the Direct Instruction Model of Teaching?” Since there are 13 elements in each lesson plan we will divide this lesson plan into five parts. Here are the first, second , third and fourth parts of this lesson on the direct instruction model of teaching. The fifth part of this lesson follows.
Closure: (Activity that summarizes and ends the lesson)
The teacher summarizes the lesson by (a) reviewing the five steps of the Direct Instruction Model of Teaching, (b) explaining that it is best used to teach a skill, procedure and (c) sharing the chart at the top of this post.
In the next post we will begin discussing the Presentation Model of Teaching.
