Video of the Week: "How to spot a misleading graph"

Before the break, my seventh graders and I were exploring infographics. I'm excited to jump back in today using this video: 

Here's the conversation I'm looking forward to having with them:

  • Take a look at a few infographics. Do you see any misleading graphs? 
  • Now look at your own infographic... do you have any misleading graphs? 
  • Is it ethical to use misleading graphs like the ones shown in the video? 
  • Is there anything you feel like you should do as a consumer or a creator to fight against this?
