Fall and early winter have been a whirlwind here at the Data Literacy Program (DLP). Between testing two Creative Series Data Stories and our other work, we did not post as much via AAI News. So what were we working on behind the scenes?
Mayhaps you’ve had a manuscript marinating? Potentially you’ve been pondering potsherd patterning? Or digging around in your data? Are you wondering how to turn these tidbits into some archaeological writing? Well, have we got some inspiration for you!
Similar to other thematic months, like National Arts & Humanities Month, or artistic creative endeavors, such as the 100 Days project, NaNoWriMo is a limited-duration writing project. For archaeologists, we have ArchWriMo and this year the AAI will be posting inspirational prompts in celebration!
We had a busy summer here at the Data Literacy Program (DLP). Between sharing our Fall 2022 Table of Contents, publishing updates to the Alexandria Archives’ News, and prepping our It’s All in the Wrist (Bones) Data Story, we’ve done a lot during the third quarter of 2022. But … was that everything we did?
Have you been itching to illustrate? Craving some cooking? Or daring to dance? Are you wondering how you could make these inclinations archaeological? Well, have we got some inspiration for you!
We’re happy to announce the Data Literacy Program’s (DLP’s) first Table of Contents (TOC). The TOC is a preview of our existing and future Data Stories. And we designed this handy resource to outline data stories you can incorporate in classes now or in the future.
