This introduction to and overview of the series of training modules was developed to assist school personnel in implementing the Instructional Support Team (IST) process. Although each module covers a specific aspect of training, each is interconnected and dependent upon an understanding of the purposes behind IST and the way the IST process functions. The manual is in four parts. Part 1, "Understanding the Instructional Support Team Process," focuses on IST training objectives, general and specific purposes of IST, degree of need, fading out IST services, and key personnel. Part 2, "Understanding How the IST Process Functions," looks at phases of the IST process including hypothesis forming, verifying, outcomes, and documentation. Part 3 covers "How IST Functions for Students with Disabilities." Part 4, "The Use of Coaching and Guided Practice in Instructional Support Training," explores goals and effectiveness of staff development and the definition and value of coaching. The specific objective of each part is outlined, along with activities and key points; overheads are used to illustrate the process. Each part includes references and support materials. The final section provides masters for all the overheads used in the training manual. (ND)
