Good learning experiences ask students to investigate and make sense of the world. While there are many ways to do this, K-12 curriculum has traditionally skewed toward reading and writing to interpret and express students' sense-making. But there is another way. Infographics represent data and ideas visually, in pictures, engaging more parts of the brain to look at a problem from more than one angle. As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and pictures can be essential when complex relationships are difficult to convey with words alone. In this article, the author discusses how to develop students' critical-thinking skills by teaching them to interpret and create infographics.
