Conducting Direct Instruction Lessons by Presenting Content in Small Sequential Chunks


Educator Deborah Thomas

The teacher chunks content into small, digestible bites for students. If presenting new declarative knowledge (what students must know how to do), the chunks comprise concepts and details that logically go together. If presenting new procedural knowledge (what students must be able to do), the chunks comprise steps in a process that go together.
