Teachers's discussion guide for reading data with children

Teachers' discussion guide for reading data with children


The guide was developed and tested by the NISR Innovations Team, UNICEF Rwanda, and Rwanda Education Board. It uses data from the Fourth Integrated Household and Living Conditions Survey and the Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey and is adapted to a child’s capacity. This guide is expected to further inspire data-driven minds among Rwanda’s youth, who will steer the country’s future in the era of Sustainable Development Goals. This guide was designed to be interactive, and is intended to be used in a flexible way. As every educator knows, each child and each classroom is unique; therefore, we encourage you to adapt this guide as you see fit.
