Research Study Group
What We Created: Through a small grant from the University of South Carolina we have developed 2 units that use authentic science data about endangered species while teaching students how to accurately locate and use information in line plots, pictographs, and bar graphs. Students will listen to a narrator read information as they explore, locate, and use information on tactile graphics.
Why We Created the Materials: When braille readers have a systematic approach to use when locating and interpreting information in tactile graphics, they can engage more efficiently in learning.
Time frame: The study runs from February – May 2023
