Guam - Students aren't the only ones getting ready to go back to school. Today marked the start of weeklong Direct Instruction training for teachers from the island's eleven DI schools. Over 340 teachers participated in today's sessions at the Holiday Resort, focusing on being more efficient at using the DI instructional format.

DI project coordinator Donna Dwiggins said, "It's very effective. We're beginning our ninth year now, so we're really starting to see the fruits of our labor so to speak the hanging in there, sticking with it."

Dwiggins says today's high turnout shows that teachers are committed to getting trained and preparing for the start of the school year.
