Storyboarding With Data: Using Quantitative Reading to Teach Research Writing part of National Numeracy Network:Teaching Resources:Quantitative Writing:Examples
By using a multi-part storyboard approach, we aim to teach participants how to critically assess visual information in research articles. In this exercise, we have three workshop activities: (1) assessing a single figure, (2) assessing a series of figures to determine coherence across a data set, (3) drafting the text for a research article around those visual representations of data.
