There is so much on the internet regarding Direct Instruction that we thought it would be a good idea to collate the readings we have found most interesting and put them in one place.
Therefore, at the Direct Instruction South Hub we have put together a collection of articles, blogs, and recommended books that covers everything that you need to know about the thoughts of Siegfried Engelmann and how Direct Instruction works.
This library of course is a working document that we will continue to expand so it is only left to say that we hope you enjoy looking through our library at your leisure or indeed to further your own professional development.
