Many of teaching's best practices have been bundled together and given the label of DII. These strategies involve keeping all students actively involved in lessons at all times. Many of the worksheets have incorporated DII within the lessons.
Example: Students are asked to explain why they chose commas instead of parentheses to add a non-restrictive clause to the sentence below:
If we go to the movie, which lasts for two hours, we should be home by 9:30.
Using sentence frames, the students would respond to a table partner:
"I used commas for my non-restrictive element by adding the phrase ‘which lasts for two hours’. I chose commas because I added bonus information, and it was a mild interruption."
