Students aren’t the only ones who struggle to determine the best way to display data in graphic form. Because there are usually many representations that can be used, and each may encourage the reader to make slightly different conclusions, deciding on the most appropriate graph can be tricky. In this 1.5 hr. workshop, participants will learn a repeatable technique using a gallery walk of student graphs, a comparison, and analysis of the many different possible visual representations, and a peer critique all aimed to help students modify and improve the final draft of their graphs.
Although the examples in this workshop will be based in math and science, this 1.5-hour workshop is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.
