What's Going On In This Graph?
We all know information is beautiful. Analysing and interpreting graphs is so important, and I am excited about the New York TImes’s latest initiative: What’s going on in this graph? Each month, a new graph will be shared. Students can join a moderated online discussion about the graph, and the Times will publish more information about it over the week. Perfect for MS or HS students.
What's Going On In This Picture?
Images are powerful sources of information. What’s Going On In This Picture is a weekly image put out by the New York Times, devoid of its caption. Over the week, students can participate in a live chat about what they observe, and at the end of the week, further information is revealed. It’s a great opportunity to strengthen students’ visible thinking skills and observation.
