GAISE Report – this is the report that we first started with, when we started our Community of Practice around teaching statistics.  The report is LONG, but there is a short summary of 6 recommendations at the beginning and there are neat problems in the appendix that you can use in your classroom.  Here are the 6 recommendations:

  1. Teach statistical thinking.
    1. Teach statistics as an investigative process of problem-solving and decisionmaking.
    2. Give students experience with multivariable thinking.
  2. Focus on conceptual understanding.
  3. Integrate real data with a context and purpose.
  4. Foster active learning.
  5. Use technology to explore concepts and analyze data.
  6. Use assessments to improve and evaluate student learning.
