Topic-Contributed Paper Session 
Oregon Convention Center 
The MODULE(S2) project ( created curriculum materials to support preservice teachers in gaining knowledge, pedagogical skills, confidence, and motivation to teach statistics & data science equitably with authentic data about societal issues. We will discuss the design of these materials, including how they incorporate technology (CODAP and StatKey), data investigation activities, and representations of the practice of teaching statistics to meet these goals. Key components include reading modern multivariate visualizations, interpreting data on educational outcomes through an equity lens, and studying project-based learning approaches to investigate issues of equity in local communities. We will also present the results of a study on preservice teachers' development of equity literacy and critical statistical literacy through use of these materials.
