Yager, Robert E.
This program is called Project ASSIST. ASSIST is an acronym for Alternative Strategies and Services for Improving Science Teaching. ASSIST is involved in teacher education (both inservice and preservice), student programs, and community relations. The model consists of five levels: (1) the coordinating staff; (2) the consulting and advisory groups; (3) research and development; (4) programs; and (5) the regional centers. Service possibilities characterizing this project include coordination of programs, educational needs assessment, curriculum and program development, and an instructional materials center. The major activity of ASSIST has been the assistance provided to schools for directly implementing or revising major science curriculum programs in Iowa schools. (Author/BB)
