Data Analysis to Drive Civic Action
In this math and civics lesson students will apply skills in statistical analysis (categorizing data, creating and reading graphs) to examine concepts of impact of civic engagement. Using data regarding school-associated violent deaths, students will examine and interpret data and use knowledge of civic life, politics, and government to discuss potential civic engagement. The content of the lesson is driven by Library of Congress resources within an inquiry design to guide students in generating relevant questions and thinking critically about data and civic issues.
