A paper which shows how a school curriculum design called "Direct Instructions" is based on the model of learning by the same name. The paper shows that the main aim of the curriculum designed for elementary high schools of a district, is the uniformity in the curricula so all the schools impart the same educational quality and therefore there is no discrepancy and the whole community remains satisfied. The curriculum encourages coordination between the schools, identical teacher training, and ease the students transition into high school as they would belong to the same schooling system.

From the Paper:

"The Coordinated Learning methods are designed to drill the students with what is taught in the class. The students are taught "automaticity" where they learn and comprehend their lessons to perfection. They reiterate the lessons till each and every student has learned the lesson. The learning is not limited to the classrooms, but the students are also taught to implement what they have learned and are taught the true usage of what they have learned. The incessant repetition of work transfers the learning from short term to long-term memory of the student. The students are retested at timely intervals so as to ensure that they have not forgotten what they have been taught. Thus the overall effect is that the student's learning power is accelerated and he finds it easier to learn and understand new things once he has been taught the tact of learning."
