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!
