WGOITGraph?

Quelle: New York Times
Well, we’ve developed a way to do just that. This year, we’re delighted to announce that we’ll be partnering with the American Statistical Association (A.S.A.) for a new monthly feature, “What’s Going On in This Graph?”, or “WGOITGraph?” The A.S.A. educates the public about using data to understand our world and believes that statistical literacy is important for everyone.

Die New York Times startet eine neue monatliche Reihe: What’s Going On in This Graph? Ähnlich zum bereits bestehenden What’s Going On in This Picture?

If you’re familiar with our popular “What’s Going On in This Picture?” series, you’ll have some idea already of how “WGOITGraph?” will work. In that feature, we partner every Monday with Visual Thinking Strategies to publish an intriguing Times photo stripped of its caption, and to invite students to come to our site and discuss what they see. On Fridays, we reveal the original caption along with related information. Teachers tell us that the exercise helps students practice their visual thinking skills and their use of evidence to support claims, across subjects and grade levels. And — just as important — they tell us it’s fun.
