Pennsylvania Principals' Training Model. Trainer's Manual.
Kovaleski, Joseph F., Ed.
The Instructional Support Team (IST) process is an intensive building-based pre-referral intervention program using teams of teachers and other school professionals to assist elementary students experiencing difficulty in the classroom. This trainer's manual presents a model workshop for training principals. The workshop's goals are to: (1) increase understanding of the IST process; (2) understand the role of the principal in the IST process; (3) recognize belief systems or paradigms of self and others as they relate to the education of children at risk or with special needs; (4) gain an understanding of inclusion and how it relates to the IST process; and (5) understand how IST is connected to other programs, initiatives, and goals within the school and district. The 4-day workshop is divided into 12 sessions. The manual provides a detailed outline of each session for the workshop leader, along with handouts and overheads, and directions for small group discussions. Topics covered include: the background and use of the IST process, "the change game," curriculum based assessment, IST computer programs, effective interaction patterns, role playing, marketing IST, and starting to make connections.
