We currently support 40 schools in rural and remote communities across Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland. Our partnerships are increasing with the success of our programs.
Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI) is a teaching practice based on educational theory, brain research, data analysis and DI. The education pedagogy combines a set of instructional practices with well-crafted lesson design. It includes continuous “checking of understanding” until students master the skills being taught. It is based on the premise that all children can learn.
Direct Instruction (DI) is an education program that combines explicit instruction pedagogy with a comprehensive curriculum, student assessment and scripted lessons. Students are taught carefully sequenced and highly structured lessons and are required to ‘master’ each lesson before advancing on to the next. This ensures that advanced students can be accelerated and that no child is left behind.
A 2016 independent survey of teachers and principals in schools using our literacy programs showed how the overall learning environment in the school had improved.
