On its own, data does not tell a story. It needs to be bolstered by the insights gained in the process of analyzing data for communicating the significance of the relevant research questions.

This summer, the students of PROW 2000: Writing with Data learned this via a variety of digital tools that enable the effective visualization of data - including Voyant Tools, Storymap.js, and MS Excel.
Coursework Instruction materials, including slides, spreadsheet dataset, and recordings can be found in this box folder.
