Project 2061

Project 2061 is a long-term initiative of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to reform K-12 science, math, and technology education nationwide through groundbreaking research and innovative books, CD-ROMs, and professional development workshops. Their website includes an online copy of their book, Science for All Americans, which sets out recommendations for what all students should know and be able to do in science, math, and technology by the time they graduate from high school. An Atlas of Science Literacy offers conceptual maps depicting how K-12 learning goals for a particular topic relate to each other and progress from one grade level to the next. Also available are resources for professional development, news, and articles about textbooks, teaching techniques, workshops, and testing.
