Getting Started – DIIMSA Guidesets
Facilitators, teachers and administrators highly recommend the popular DIIMSA Guidesets (VBOARD or Pics-Fair) as a way to get started using the DIIMSA instructional framework for vocabulary and concept enhancement.
DIIMSA VBOARD is a vocabulary-enhancement activity that provides a way for students to connect words (content, concepts, academic vocabulary, PSAT/SAT) to a scene (picture or video) based on their own context of understanding. Printable Brochure: DIIMSA VBOARD
DIIMSA Pics-Fair is a topic- or concept-to-picture Instructional Assignment that provides a way for students to “let the camera drive the content” as they explore and research science in their own communities. Guidesets are full color and categorized for grade-levels and specific topics. Printable Brochure: DIIMSA Pics-Fair
DIIMSA guidesets are available from the DIIMSA online store.
