ASK: Author, Specialist, Knowledge
TWICE partners with various educational organizations around Michigan to bring ASK Author videoconferences to students. ASK (“Authors Specialist and Knowledge”) is an organized process that provides students with the opportunity to interview an author or a subject specialist in the topic they are reading about in a novel. The program uses excellent literature, journal writing and interviewing to promote reading for understanding.
