Dr. Betsy Colburn Harvard Forest Schoolyard Science Program has completed Show Me a Picture, Tell Me a Story: An Introduction to Graphs for the Analysis of Ecological Data from Schoolyard Science Research Studies. This guide for teachers discusses the use of graphs to interpret ecological data collected in schoolyard research studies. The manual covers ways of organizing data, the kinds of data manipulations that may be needed before graphs can be produced, and a variety of different types of graphs. Examples are provided from research conducted by HF scientists involved in the Harvard Forest Schoolyard Ecology Program, and from schoolyard research studies conducted by participating classrooms. The manual is available for download.
