DISTAR is an acronym for Direct Instruction System for Teaching Arithmetic and Reading, a trademarked program of SRA/McGraw-Hill, a commercial publishing company. The program is used particularly for historically disadvantaged and/or at-risk students. DISTAR has been rebranded by SRA/McGraw-Hill as Reading Mastery. Direct instruction is one of several highly structured methodologies for teaching elementary, middle and high school students. Siegfried Engelmann, a professor at the University of Oregon, created the Direct Instruction model.
