Hi, y’all! Here are my favorites stories from the past week:
Yesterday I wrote about a guest speaker who presented their recent work on the impacts of remote learning on grades:
Week 14 is over and I’m at 11 books for the year. I wrapped up The Data Detective by Tim Harford and really enjoyed it. Its premise was that the old How to Lie with Statistics book is an inappropriate way to think about data analysis. Harford provides a set of ten principles that can help people interpret research and data they see presented in the news. The book is modeled a lot on his podcast More or Less.
I’ve got a couple of other books in the queue that I hope to wrap up soon. Spring is finally starting to settle in and I think it’ll soon be time to bust out the ol’ hammock.
