This is no experiment. This is the future of education.
ASSET’s incredible growth and emergence as one of the country’s leading forces in achieving systemic reform in elementary and middle school science education begins with its research and development programs.
Teachers often are exposed to one-shot training that is soon replaced by another ‘flavor of the day.’ As a result, they’re wary of many training programs. But ASSET is in a league of its own. It offers credible professional development teachers trust.
Some students do best when everything is broken down and explained. Others love the freedom of exploration. The amazing thing about ASSET’s approach to science is that it works for both learning styles. You can follow an experiment step by step — or cut loose and go crazy.
ASSET trainings are truly the BEST professional development I have ever received.
