Just Ask Project
The "Just ASK Project" is a professional development project funded by the National Science Foundation. The aim of the project is to study the effect of "adapting science for kids" (ASK) to teach and reinforce student skills in reading, writing, and other areas of the curriculum while learning science through hands-on inquiry. The project participants include elementary school teachers from rural districts in Missouri and Iowa. As part of the project, this website was launched so that teachers nationally and internationally could share teacher lesson adaptations and video recordings of ASK lessons and discuss their ideas about the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
