eCOTS 2020 - Dollar Street Contest

Data isn’t just numbers anymore! Dollar Street is a new website on that helps individuals explore income and how people live around the world, not just by using numbers but also by using pictures.

This contest is a call for lesson plans that use Data Street data or are inspired by Dollar Street.

The lesson plan should include the appropriate materials needed by both students and teachers. As examples a good lesson plan might include: instructions for the students to carry out the activity, instructor tips, learning objectives, time to complete the activity, resources needed to complete the activity, recommended course, in class or out-of-class use for the activity and skills required. The lesson plan should be accompanied by a grading rubric for any assessment.  

Lesson plans should be submitted by February 15th, 2020.

Along with cash prizes, the top winners will present their activity in a panel during eCOTS 2020 from May 18th to May 22nd. The lesson plans will be judged by a panel of educators. All decisions by judges are final.
