The Take Action Project
Boudreau, Sue
Science Scope, v34 n2 p30-36 Oct 2010
The Take Action Project (TAP) was created to help middle school students take informed and effective action on science-related issues. The seven steps of TAP ask students to (1) choose a science-related problem of interest to them, (2) research their problem, (3) select an action to take on the problem, (4) plan that action, (5) take action, (6) make a poster, and (7) share, celebrate, and reflect on their project. Here the authors share three of the preliminary TAP activities they have used in their seventh-grade classrooms over the past two years. (Contains 6 resources, 1 online resource and 3 figures.)
