This lesson is connected to but can be used independently of "Using Big Data to Identify and Understand Educational Inequality in America (1)"
Students will develop CS skills and behaviors including but not limited to: learning what an API is, learning how to access and utilize data on an API, and developing their R coding skills and knowledge. Students will also learn basic, but important, sociological principles such as how poverty is related to educational opportunities in America (and how this relationship varies between and among states). Although prior knowledge of CS and sociology is helpful, neither is necessary for student (or instructor) success on this project. Three instructional hours.
