7 Basic Rules for Making Charts and Graphs is a great post from Flowing Data about creating infographics.
It’s not accessible to English Language Learners, but a teacher can easily use the main points to guide any kind of instruction. I’m planning of having students make one related to my neighborhoods lesson (see A Lesson Highlighting Community Assets — Not Deficits), so it will come in handy.
Hi Larry! I’m really interested in helping teachers help kids create effective AND accurate infographics. Thanks for the 7 basic rules!
I’m a big fan of this kid, Michael Greenberg, who seems to have internalized his own rules: http://graphthe.info/2010/03/how-i-made-the-ski-utah-infographic.
