Zig was larger than life. Although it's been 40 years, I have some lasting memories of him that have endured. He would hold class down in the basement of his clinic while lifting weights, and snap himself with a rubber band around his wrist every time he had the urge to smoke. I found myself championing his methodologies for capturing the child not benefiting from a traditional learning approach throughout my career. DI worked wonderfully. This world is better place because of Zig. Philosopher/Educator

Zig was the most AMAZING educator of all time! He cared about kids---especially the hard-to-teach kids and conveyed that commitment to everyone he touched. I was an award-winning ADI recipient; however, I could never have begun to approach being the teacher I was without Direct Instruction. In fact, I told Ziggy when he handed me my award (2000) that I felt as if I was getting an award for "adding two eggs and a half a cup of water to an OUTSTANDING cake mix!" (Zig's kind response was, "It looks like you found the eggs and the water.") We have lost the giant of educational curriculum. There could never be another to fill his shoes!

I had the privilege of meeting Zig at a NIFDI conference, and I was immediately in awe of him. I loved listening to him speak, he was not one to mince words and told it like it was. I appreciated that about him. He will be dearly missed.

I worked for Siegfried Engelmann & Wes Becker at Engelmann & Becker Corp in 1973. Was for only 8 months but enjoyed working for them. Ziggy as he was called in the office will be greatly missed.
