Systems models are diagrams or infographics that contain multiple lines of evidence and data within a single visual presentation. Increasingly used across all subject areas, these graphics can be challenging for students to interpret. In this workshop, teachers will act as the students as they shift through each layer of a complex systems model to harvest the information embedded in the diagram. In a second activity, teachers will work in teams to produce a systems model that conveys a large amount of data in a succinct manner. We will discuss the repeatable method used and share sources for systems models that are applicable to their courses.
