Telling Stories with Data: Strategies and Tools for Building Data Fluency. April 11. 7-8 p.m. EST. Register at Shows images of four presenters: Hollylynne Lee, Michelle Wilkerson, David Stokes and Cherise McBride.

Data fluency is something all students need to develop. There are plenty of opportunities across the curriculum (e.g., science, math, social studies) to teach students how to interrogate data and understand how stories can be told with data. The Data Stories project has developed strategies, tools and lessons that can be easily integrated into classroom practices.

Join us in this webinar to learn more about approaches to building data fluency that combine some of the best strategies in helping students learn about socioscientific issues and statistics concepts using literacy and equity-minded practices. We will share example classroom activities that include making sense of graphs used in media and investigating data with the free online data tool, CODAP. The lessons are applicable to teachers in middle and high school. Participants will gain access to our free classroom-ready materials.
