Teaching with Current Comparative Data, Graphs, and Maps.
Coulter, Andrea M.; And Others
This document is a compilation of classroom aids for teachers using statistical data appearing in World Eagle publications. Six teachers and the editors of World Eagle supplied specific examples of materials generated for classroom drills, tests, and assignments. Classroom assignments and documents are designed to teach statistical information through the use of maps, graphs, and charts that are included. One example is a step-by-step explanation of how to draw a pie chart along with a definition of such a chart. An assignment for middle school students on how to interpret a map provides a test to accompany maps used in the classroom. There are also suggestions on how to instruct students to read a table, rank order states, compute a percentage of the total, and identify selected states and countries using blank outline maps. (NL)
