What's Going On in This Graph?
Teaching With Graphs From The New York Times
An open webinar from the New York Times Learning Network
Teaching students how to read, interpret and question graphs, maps and charts is a key 21st-century skill. One of our weekly features, ‘What’s Going On in This Graph?’, provides an authentic way for students to interpret graphs, evaluate their reliability, and draw logical conclusions.
Each week on The Learning Network, we spotlight a new Times graph — on topics ranging from pop music and sneakers to climate change and college costs — as part of our “What’s Going On in This Graph?” On Wednesdays, teachers from the American Statistical Association provide live facilitation to help students notice, wonder and deepen their analysis. And on Thursdays, our A.S.A. partners provide additional background about these graphs and relevant statistical concepts.
In this webinar, The Learning Network will be joined by special guests to explore how to teach and learn with the award-winning graphics from The New York Times.
