The old adage, let the data speak for itself, is often poor advice. Without context it can be difficult (even impossible) to glean insights from statistical graphs and tables. In this seminar, students gain experience in how to write about their data insights in a way that is both compelling and faithful to the data. We explore a variety of genres from technical articles to news stories and blog posts.
