One of the most significant gender gaps is in the STEM area; science, technology, engineering, and math. There are needs and opportunities for women in the STEM fields, especially civil engineering.

They are demonstrating their understanding of Math concepts, data graphs, misleading graphs and communication skills. Laurel chose to give authentic, relevant and meaningful data (not invented data) to her students to analyze from the results of a Challenge Success survey taken the previous school year at the school. The survey compiled data about the school’s extra curricular activities, homework habits, parent involvement, student engagement, sleep patterns etc. Laurel’s plan was to have students analyze the data and then create different types of graphs to be able to communicate their findings in a presentation. Laurel also made connections to standards clear: Laurel, in her own words, lists some of the observations and comparison from teaching the same unit in previous years.

You would see a picture of what the Internet thinks about – this (click on each story). How do we know all this? The data comes from the largest index of links on the Internet (after Google) by Ahrefs. What Does the Internet Say About Us? If the Internet is the largest collection of information, it likely reflects what matters to us, humans, the most. Articles that are not as personal, are either useful, like the article that advises on how to extend your Android phone’s battery life, or entertaining, like the article that shows how we sound when we use #hashtags. If we were to condense all these articles into a recipe for a great article, it would be personal, useful, and entertaining.

While a handful of the charts below only show aesthetic changes compared to others, most are concept maps of sorts–with graphic design that signifies extended function (power verbs), detail (clear explanations), or features of some sort (Bloom’s Taxonomy tasks by level).
