Close Reading: Unpacking the Impact Language Has on How We Understand Statistics
Thursday, July 14, 1:15pm - 2:15pm EST

Presented by Tasha Bergson-Michelson, Castilleja School, Palo Alto, CA
Moderated by Wendy Stephens, Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, AL

How do the words we use to frame and describe statistics potentially change how readers perceive their meaning? Students often go looking for “some number” to use as evidence, but the emotionally evocative language in which the statistics are often embedded may go unnoticed, even while it sways the readers’ opinion of its applicability to their need. Luckily, applying students’ formative skills in literary analysis can go a long way toward helping them move beyond initial responses to successfully analyzing and evaluating data. Come play with the language of statistics and explore ways to extend existing close reading practice to better support data literacy.
