  • Call for Papers: Direct Instruction

    Direct Instruction (DI) is a powerful teaching system that combines logical selection and sequencing of examples and high rates of student responding to mastery. Countless children and adults owe their literacy and early academic success to teachers who skillfully presented DI programs developed by Siegfried Engelmann and colleagues. In acknowledgement of the central importance of this topic to behavior analysis, science, and learning, Perspectives on Behavior Science and Behavior Analysis in Practice are planning special sections on Direct Instruction and the Science and Practice of Behavior Analysis.

    Submission Deadline: September 1, 2020
