Want to integrate data literacy skills into your teaching?
Join us as the Data Literacy Series (December 2018 – April 2019), at the New Brunswick Rutgers University campus.
Through a series of short, 3-hour, workshops we will dive into six common areas that trip up students when working with and learning through data. Each workshop includes tips and tricks of integrating data literacy into what you already do, hands-on activities, and time to modify activities for your classroom that address the data literacy skill.
The workshop is open to science, math, and social studies teachers in grades 4-12 that are interested in pursuing more successful ways to integrate data into their teaching. To learn more about the series, click here. In essence, we will unpack what is involved in teaching with data!
When It Occurs & What to Expect
Each evening we will dive into data literacy concepts that all students need to be successful in the 21st century. Join us for all, a couple, or just one of the 3-hour workshops. Dinner and materials will be provided at every workshop. Come network with colleagues and other data-interested educators.
The series includes:
At the end of each hands-on workshop you will have new skills and tips for exposing your students to data skills and bringing real world data into your classrooms. As a learning community, we will develop strategies to successfully implement these data literacy skills into our classrooms.
To apply: You must be a 4-12th grade classroom science, math, or social science teacher, as well as be willing to dive into data.
Click here to apply now & bring data to your students this year!
Preference is provided to those that apply for each workshop at least a week in advance.
Applicants will receive notification of acceptance and additional information the Thursday before each event.
