Data Visualization - A Scientific Approach to the Art of English

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Construct a hypothesis. Track data. Create graphs. Draw conclusions. Interpret evidence. Communicate results. 

What sounds like a science experiment is actually a technique that makes literary analysis a concrete process leading to a deeper understanding of complex texts.

Participants will learn how to teach students to quantify their literary analysis and share their findings digitally with powerful visual displays, graphs, and infographics. Using scientific inquiry and digital data visualization, students will be able to effectively analyze the development of characters and themes within texts, write arguments to support claims with textual evidence, and present those claims and findings while strengthening skills for life success such as critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.

When we make data from the text visual, we facilitate deeper analysis and engagement.

During this session, participants will:
1. review how this method was used with high school English students.
2. experience the process as learners by
      - reviewing literature using data,
      - experiencing “a-ha” moments as the data is analyzed, and
      - creating data visualizations using RAWGraphs, Canva, and Google Slides.
3. consider how to implement the method in their class with special consideration given to project-based learning.
