DR LEARNING uses Direct Instruction programs and principles exclusively for elementary-aged students. In a typical lesson, you will see teacher led instruction with rapid pacing, and frequent responses. The teacher follows a very detailed lesson plan with over 30 years in development and testing.
DR LEARNING provides coaching and tutoring in the core subjects. Program-based and teacher-made materials provide the necessary adaptations to meet the students' needs.
Both norm referenced and criterion referenced assessments are available as well as placement tests for each program in the core subjects.
