Go Figure: Building Data Literacy and Scientific Argumentation Skills with BioInteractive Data Points
This workshop will be offered on Monday, February 26, 7:30–9:00PM EASTERN. Note that the workshop time is in US Eastern time zone. Please verify the corresponding time in your local area.
Being able to interpret a graph and utilize real data as evidence are key transferable skills for all science students. Join us as we model how to engage students in data analysis using BioInteractive Data Points, a free collection of authentic scientific graphs and figures. First we'll see how withholding information can help you motivate students' deep engagement with graphs. We’ll then explore strategies to support your students as they construct scientific arguments using these figures. You’ll come away with flexible strategies that you can use and reuse to build your students’ confidence working with real data.
This workshop is for educators who teach any level of high school biology, including introductory and advanced courses (AP, IB, etc.). Facilitators will model strategies for synchronous online and in-person instruction.
- The workshop will be hosted via Zoom meeting.
- Our workshops actively engage participants and often feature small group work in breakout rooms to build community, foster discussion, and model classroom practice.
- Workshop attendees will receive a certificate of participation and access to the free BioInteractive resources modeled in the workshop.
Live transcription will be available in the main Zoom meeting room. If you require live transcription in the breakout rooms, or any other accommodations in order to fully participate in the workshop, please indicate this on the registration form.
