  30. 30. Pros And Cons<br />Why you should or shouldn’t use Direct Instruction.<br />Disadvantages<br />It is based on old learning theories: simple tasks before complex ones, only measurable learning is worthwhile.<br />Students do not have a sense of the overall purpose when it comes to the simple steps. <br />More difficult to access the students’ prior knowledge. <br />Lower retention rate in problem solving.<br />Direct instruction works best in conjunction with other teaching methods.<br />Advantages<br />The teacher has control of the timing of the lesson.<br />Students are physically easy to monitor.<br />The teacher has control over what will be learned and who will learn. <br />The curriculum can be covered so the teacher can say that he/she taught the material. <br />Any information for which there is one right answer can be taught efficiently and honestly by using direct instruction. <br />
  31. 31. High Vs. Low Socioeconomic Income<br /><ul><li>How the Teachers teach is important.
  32. 32. Two different schools.
  33. 33. Two different styles of learning.
  34. 34. Two different socioeconomic incomes.</li></li></ul><li>Research indicates that direct instruction works better even in other countries for teaching young children, children with disabilities, or children that are learning to speak more than one language.<br />
  35. 35. OTHER LANGUAGES<br />~instructors are able to demonstrate the technique efficiently to students as a combination of instructional components.~ direct instruction in language skills can improve conversational grammar. ~Pre and post test comparisons between groups showed that the Direct instruction group made significantly greater gains than the traditional group on phonological/orthographic measures. <br />
