ASK = Author * Specialist * Knowledge

TWICE (Two Way Interactive Connections in Education) partners with various educational organizations such as the Genesee ISD and GenNET around Michigan to bring ASK Author video conferences 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.
