*Upcoming Event* - Economic Outcomes

Hello All!

There is a Webinar and Online Discussion in the LINCS Community next week that I wanted to draw your attention to (see below).  This webinar will focus  on a study that was done by Dr. Steve Reder. Here is a link to the study: http://lincs.ed.gov/publications/pdf/ABS_EconomicOutcomes.pdf.  As you look through the study - notice the graphs and charts on pages 2 - 4.  Is there a way to use these in your classroom?  Would this information be useful with your learners?  I know how I would use it but please post how you would approach incorporating these into your next class, then I will share mine.  Remember to also, sign up for the upcoming webinar and participate in the online discussion next week.
