4) Learn how to lead students to success with data

Tips for Student Success with Data: Sunday, June 25, 10:00am

Students are being asked more and more to incorporate data and data analysis into their research. How do we help students learn to find the right data and to use it successfully to further an argument? We have brought together two of our favorite “data geeks” to present their tips and tricks for leading students to success with data; including the right questions to ask, the right places to look for authoritative data, and the right way to evaluate datasets for appropriateness in answering the research question.

9) Speak from the heart about the freedom to read

Stand for the Banned booth: Saturday & Sunday, June 24-25, 9am-5pm

“Words have Power” is the theme for Banned Books Week 2017 (Sept. 24 – Sept. 30), acknowledging that books connect communities and present new ideas and recognizing your own ability to speak out against censorship. Supporting this observance, we’re partnering again with ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom to host the Stand for the Banned booth at ALA Annual. At the booth, you can be filmed speaking from the heart about how a book that has been banned before has impacted your life or read a short passage from your favorite banned book. Recorded videos will be featured on the Banned Books Week YouTube channel during Banned Books Week. (Sign up for a fast pass today!)

The booth will be located near the registration area.

Additionally, come see us at the SAGE booth to chat about our products and get demos. ALA Annual is the perfect time to check out our SAGE Business Cases collection, SAGE Video collection (including its latest collections in Sociology and Criminology & Criminal Justice), and SAGE Research Methods Cases (expanding by 1,500 new cases over the next three years).

See you all soon!
