    How Charts Lie: Introduction and Chapter 1 Response

    How Charts Lie: Introduction and Chapter 1 Response

    This semester I decided to take a class titled 'Introduction to Infographics and Data Visualization,' which specializes in interpreting and creating infographics to accompany educational projects or articles. The first reading for the class is titled How Charts Lie by Alberto Cairo, and the main idea of the book is explaining how political, public, and general figures either intentionally or unintentionally misread charted graphics for their personal gain. The book's introduction begins with several graphics illustrated from the 2016 Presidential Election, including this controversial image of the Electoral College votes. The key reason for bringing up the election concerned the fact that President Trump and his colleagues tend to falsify the actual results from the election, using misleading charts to convince the American people that they won by a landslide. In reality they actually lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton, and only won the election via the electoral college where the states with the higher number of representatives voted in his favor. Cairo further explains throughout the remainder of the introduction into the first chapter how it's immensely important that people in such a technical world have a clear sense of graphicacy (graphic literacy), meaning that they can correctly interpret the thousands of charts found around news media daily. Another notion Cairo mentions to help facilitate chart interpretation is making sure that the artists make regional proportions correct to their statistics; this means that if a city, like Miami, FL, has a population of 2.7 million people, while a city, like Los Angeles, CA, has a population of 10 million people, the graphic depicting LA should be nearly four times the size of Miami's representative graphic.

    How to Survive High School

    How to Survive High School

    Let me just start this article off by saying that I was in no way “popular” in high school. I went in to it after graduating 8th grade with only 14 other people in my class, almost all of whom I had known since Pre-K, so the transformation into a public school with suddenly hundreds of people in my class who I’d never met was nerve wracking to say the least. My hope is that at least one of the tips below can help in some way or form to whoever is reading it. So I’ll give you a few quick little tips on not only how to make it through high school, but also how to get the most out of it that you can. I’m not about to say anything you that you haven’t heard before, but maybe coming from someone who was in the same spot as you are not too long ago, it’ll give you some reassurance that everything is going to be okay - I promise!

    Camping in January

    Camping in January

    When I was a senior in high school, I took a weekend college class run by the local college on winter wilderness survival. It was held at a camp located in the Southern Colorado Rocky Mountains at an elevation of about 9000 feet above sea level. It was a cold, snowy three days in January. January, my friends, we were camping in January!

    Thomas More the Renaissance Man

    Thomas More the Renaissance Man

    A Renaissance Man is known as a very clever “jack of all trades” with an interest in humanism. It is very few and far between that, you find one and even harder to prove it. So this begs the question, is Saint Sir Thomas More a Renaissance Man? The answer is yes, Saint Sir Thomas More was, in fact, a Renaissance Man through More’s theology, humanistic works, and fields of study/work.

    Help! I’m a Substitute Teacher with No Lesson Plans! Part 1

    Help! I’m a Substitute Teacher with No Lesson Plans! Part 1

    If you are a substitute teacher, especially if you have been in the game for a while, there is no doubt that you have run into the horrific scenario of walking into a classroom with confusing lesson plans, missing materials, or no lesson plans at all. You may have had to fight the urge to run out of the classroom screaming because every teacher knows that failure to plan is a plan to fail. Most teachers will agree that having to teach a group of students without sufficient plans and supplies can be extremely stressful.
