What Is Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI)® ?

EDI® was developed by Dataworks founders, Dr. Silvia Ybarra and John Hollingsworth. EDI® focuses on improving education at the lesson level by incorporating a strategic collection of instructional practices from the work of educational and cognitive researchers such as Hattie, Rosenshine, Hunter, Sousa, and Marzano. When all of the research is combined, you get EDI®.

The extensive classroom experience of the Dataworks founders and staff has proven that direct instruction is more effective and efficient, especially for struggling students and English learners.

Checking for Understanding

Most teachers know how to ask questions and call on students for responses. But are teachers asking the right questions to the right students? EDI® has simple tips to help teachers ask powerful, probing questions to non-volunteers that will change the culture of the classroom and accurately assess learning in real-time.

explicit-direct-instruction-lesson-design-components

Lesson Design Components

Create a culture of instructional excellence by providing common procedures for lessons. We cover the critical components of the Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI)® lesson design; learning objective, activate prior knowledge, concept development, sill development with guided practice, relevance, and closure.

Core Concepts for Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI)®

Checking for Understanding (CFU)

There are checking for understanding questions directly on the slides so teachers can make sure students are learning. If students canÔÇÖt answer the question, reteach that slide.

Whiteboard Questions

 The questions are set up for whiteboard responses so teachers can see all student answers.

Complete Sentences

Have the students answer in complete sentences using academic language.

Periodic Review

 The lessons include periodic review so students will retain the information.

Pronounce With Me

Have students practice harder to read words in the lesson.

Choral Reading

Have the students chorally read the key information on the page.

Non-Volunteers

Call on non-volunteers to make sure everyone is learning.

Rule of Two

The lessons provide match problems so the teacher can work one and the students can work the other. Teacher works one question, the student works the other.

Pair Share

All students answer every question using academic language.

Sentence Frames

Questions include a sentence frame to ask the kids to answer in complete sentences using academic language.

How Does EDI® Help Students?

Explicit direct instruction (EDI) is a teaching method that benefits students by providing clear learning objectives, breaking down complex concepts, and giving step-by-step guidance.

It engages students actively, offers direct teaching, and offers immediate feedback.

EDI builds skills, addresses learning gaps, boosts confidence, and teaches transferable skills. It’s efficient, focused, and helps students succeed across subjects.

Is EDI® Training Necessary?

EDI can be particularly beneficial for students who need clear structure, guidance, and practice in mastering foundational skills. It’s effective for addressing learning gaps, building confidence, and improving student outcomes.

When To Deploy EDI® Training

Schools should deploy Explicit Direct Instruction (EDI)® training when they want to improve foundational skills like reading and math, help struggling students catch up, prepare for standardized tests, ensure consistent teaching, and support special education or intervention programs.

It’s effective, evidence-based, and can be useful for new teachers, initial instruction, school reform, and maintaining accountability.
