Interviewing your data
Today we’ll spend the whole class digging through different data. I have some different databases listed below.
We’ll spend some time interviewing the data here. Look through the numbers. Are there any outliers? Are there trends in the figures? What is the data telling you? What is the news?
Once you pick a number to use, practice writing a paragraph or two explaining the news from the numbers and describing the data accurately.
Include a screenshot or tally of the numbers you found, exactly as it appears in the spreadsheet.
Post your draft on Medium and submit to the JRN225 projects publication.
